LOOK BEFORE YOU WALK

This goes out to my future self and anybody who considers themselves accident prone.

"Your eyes are placed where they are placed for a reason. Use them. Besides, metal and bone don't make a good mix and shoulders have a tendency to be bony. "

The left shoulder feels like crap.

Edit: Yes, I have injured myself (being the kind of person I am), but there is no permanent damage (or at least I hope to think so)

  1. Did you have an accident? Have a piece of metal in your shoulder now? Something is wrong definitely. I don't totally get it. Very sorry to hear that. Hope you start feeling much better soon.

  2. Oh no.... I was in a hurry earlier today and accidentally hit my shoulder against a metal corner. It hurts when I touch it... that's all.

    After re-reading my post, I understand why you thought I had metal in my bone... sorry for the confusion, and thanks for your concern.... :)

  6. I'm always walking into things as well. I used to have a permanent bruise on my thigh from walking into the same printer tray every single day. I think I have very poor physical memory. You're probably the same.

  7. Oh I will Orhan, thanks... after all, I put this up as a reminder although come to think of it, it kind of beats the purpose after 10 updates... but anyway, I sure do hope there is only one of me around. The last thing I need is a doppelganger ;)

  8. Aunty: Yes, I am... I do bang into the same things quite often as well! I know I always used to bang into one of the tables in the lab until they moved it away... :)

  9. The problem is, usually when you're watching where you put your feet, you end up banging your head on something you didn't see while you were looking down.

    Take care.

  10. Hey Terra! What if the object is a hunk with a body of steel??? Do you still 'look' before you walk?

  11. Travis: True... that's one of the problems. Another ids when you're looking at the distance to where you want to go and neglect what's right in front of you...

    Citizen: Well, they've built this new air shower contraption which we have to pass through before entering the factory. My shoulder hit one of the metal sides as I was hurrying inside before the door closed

    Rakesh: If it was a hunk, I'd have knocked some place else... :D
