Note to self, vol. XV

Don't go for the last drop.

Last night while watching tv, I wanted that final water drop from my glass. It was stuck to the side so I gently tapped the base of the glass while holding it over my open mouth. The drop didn't move. Then I tapped a bit harder.

Whacked the edge of the glass into the bridge of my nose hard enough that it stung. Didn't notice till I was getting ready for bed that I had a small red mark from the smack. Still there today.

I suppose the corollary to Note to self, vol. XV would be: If in a moment of distraction and clumsiness you bang your nose with the edge of a drinking vessel, put some ice on it.

Not quite what I'd had in mind for my first post of 2009, but there you have it. Happy New Year!

A year ago on TTaT: Ah, Brain


  1. Sounds like something I'd do.

    Happy New Year, Claire!

  2. Thanks, Vahid. Happy New Year!

  3. I've always been convinced that I was the world champion of klutzes, but I think that you may be the one!

  4. Actually, I'm certain that I'm not. Just a glimpse of an ad for the abhorrent America's Funniest Home videos is enough to convince me of that.

    I concede I may be klutzier than you though. ;)
