Apparently my face

makes for a good roadblock.

Or at least that's what my pliers thought this morning when they jammed into my eye socket bone, just 1" below my eyeball.

Like freaking OW.

I look like I have a miniature snake bite... two little holes in my skin. Lovely. Now I'm just waiting for the black eye. I punched myself pretty hard! Who needs enemies when I have myself?

I just hope I didn't crack a tooth. Possibly too high to crack a tooth, but its all really sore and achy now, so who knows.

I'm the poster girl for safety goggle awareness. I wear regular glasses most of the time, and the pliers hit right below my frames. However, if I had been wearing safety glasses, the pliers would have hit them instead of ME.

Don't you just love the combo of snake bite, need-to-be-plucked eyebrows, and cleaning-house-today hairstyle? I'm so pretty. *grin*

What on earth! Please be careful! That is really scary.

OUCH! Ice, ice! I'm so glad it wasn't more serious. If I were to tell you of all the times I was self-injured, you might feel better. Too many to count. I'm notorious and it's a running family joke.

OH WOW!!!! Looks like it will be a nice pretty bruise. You are right, you should have been wearing safety glasses, but live and learn...huh!!!

ohhhh Crystal.....OUCH! And here's another ouch that comes from a thump on the back of the head from me! THWACK! Put your glasses on!!!!

You have the exact same coloring as my sister and she bruises so easily. Just remember, you can always say "You should see the other guy!" LOL
