    ever done something really dumb?

    Today I was trying to fix a bycice for my kids, well, the whrench slipped off the bolt and I banged my finger really hard on the handlebars, finger swelled up, got a blood blister, thought I had broke my finger for a little while as the pain just kept getting worse. Man! that was really dumb! I mean, what do I know about fixing a bike? nothing!!! lol

    So, I thought it would be fun to share some of your dumb ouch experiences!
    I quilt for my sanity!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Mistakes keeps us humble and reminds us we are humans and humans err. Mothers always lend a hand when needed to children and spouse. To them, we are super women!!! Its "MOM" can do it!!! Go, Mom, and it OK to make mistakes; it is the love that counts.

    I guess it's that you tried that counts. Some people may live their whole life, never fixing a bicycle for their kids. Look at it as a victory!

    The other day , instead of getting up and getting a screwdriver, I used my best seam ripper to pry out a battery in my remote. It didn't work and now my sem ripper is 'pointless'

    I am reminded of the time it was pouring rain outside and I just would not wait. So I grabbed my umbrella and ran for the car. I decided it was best to get into the car first and then put the umbrella down. Here I was crowded tight into my little car with a full size umbrella. I hit the button to make it retract and somehow that umbrella hit me full force right on my jaw! I can still remember seeing stars for about 30 minutes. I did not dare drive away, I was dizzy with pain. I will not even begin to tell you what happened the time I tried to use my boys skateboard !

    Oh, I sympathize. I cannot think of anything "dumb" off the top of my head, but I am sure if I sat here and thought about it for a few, many instances would come to mind. I have had my share of "dumb" moments. Oh... here's one. My embroidery hoop broke last night, so I was super-gluing it while watching TV. I got so involved in watching the building of the Titanic on the History Channel that I glued my finger to my hoop. When I pulled my finger off the hoop (along with some skin), the hoop broke again. My husband had a "well duh" look on his face. I did get it glued without any skin loss the second time.

    This is a true story. A friend was using Super Glue to replace the inside rear view mirror. It says on the package NOT to use it to reglue the inside rear view mirror. Of course he glues the mirror to his finger. Calls me I don't have anything to unglue so I send him to a friend and eventually gets it off. By this time everyone knows about this mirror and he was teased unmercifully. Moves out west and does the exact same thing and calls me and tells me he has done it again. I am not the brightest but I would never send the word out.
