Drew's Thread of "How Have I Even Made it this Long?"

Figured I should start my own thread for all the stupid shit that happens to me... well, because of me (driving into a gate, getting my lip mangled by a dog, etc).

We've been taking the dogs to the old house this week because we have a lot of workers coming into the new one so I drop them off in the mornings and ick them up on the way home. This morning I didn't feel like putting on leashes so I went to get my car first (still too much stuff in the garage to park there just yet). I accidentally hit the close button on the garage door and just paused it and left it a third of the way down because screw waiting or messing with it... there's plenty of clearance if I duck a little bit.

A half minute later I am parked outside the garage and briskly walking in to get the dogs with my head down... leaving me at a great angle to scalp the back half of the top of my head on the lowered edge of the door. I thought I just banged it pretty badly - what's a concussion, after all? - until I saw the chunk of skin with a tuft of hair still attached sitting atop my head. As if I wasn't having a hard enough time keeping hair up there.

So Kristina cleans it up for me and now I have a gnarly square inch of open wound, slathered in neosporin, resting below whatever strands of hair I still have up there, and a dull headache to boot.

Happy Friday!

Believe me, it was the first thing I thought when I discovered the chunk that was formerly affixed to my crown.

Great story! I'm going to enjoy this thread. Your accident does suck. Hope it heals back nicely.
