I Took One On The Chin.....

.........and I am perfectly fine.

But because I'm left with this painless but embarrassing BIG OBVIOUS THING on my face, I've had to explain my dopey Julia incident over and over and over. Help me come up with a more interesting story than what actually happened, guys. Maybe something involving an undercover FBI sting in which I'm either the prime suspect OR the heroine.......hmm.

Do y'all like the nifty special effect I found that zapped out all of my neck wrinkles in this picture? Woo!


So about the time that I was scraping off my chin skin on the pavement, Terese was balancing on a chair. On tippy-toe. Reaching for something that she just couldn't quite reach. Which resulted in this which is also very obvious but unfortunately still painful:


Oh, hey! We need to come up with a story that involves BOTH of our injuries.....

This could be good.

Julia, how about you were victims of a mugging / kidnapping attempt? Or you stopped a felon while he was attempting to escape custody ? How about alien abduction? I'm a big reader of murder/ mystery so I should have a better imagination, but brain fog is my friend today, so sorry for the limited input.

Oh this one is easy to me - Terese was helping you evade the food police!! Some nifty ninja-gymnast moves could easily cause these abrasions & contusions (sp?)...but you tough ninja girls feel no pain!

Do you think I could come up with a story to explain the burn on my wrist I got while trying to get a cobbler out of the oven? I'd like something with an eye patch, if possible.

If all else fails... ninjas always work! lol

I vote for the ninja story. As for the burn on the wrist, maybe a lightsaber or a wand dual with Lord Voldemort My house is pretty obsessed with Harry Potter right now. The local theatre is adding an IMAX screen just in time for that little gem to be released. Harry Potter in 3D on an IMAX screen. Can't wait.

Or how about we had a fight with each other struggling to get to the last piece of carrot cake?

Julia said...

What great ideas!!

Well, except for Terese's since anyone that knows us would expect that kind of thing...

Ouch all the way around. I'd have to vote for the food police story. Tripping and falling are a specialty of mine also (is that yet another extra-glandular manifestation?)so I'm fresh out of clever stories to cover the resulting injuries. Uh...fell again...I think a piece of carrot cake might help me think of something spectacular, though...
