The Pony is proving himself to be an Accident Magnet. Wednesday, at 4:19 pm:
"Fell today getting into the Metris! Got a knot on my hip that's already starting to turn color."
The Pony was off a little early, and stopped by the grocery store across from the post office.
"I'm going to make steak and pasta tonight, I think."
"Mmm. I'm sure it will make your hip feel better."
At 5:51, The Pony was upset.
"Bottom of my steak was brown! This is deceptive packaging! Should be fine, though."
"They do that. As long as the date is good, and it smells okay, it should be fine."
By 5:56, The Pony's day had gotten worse.
"Agh. Steak splashed a lot of hot oil onto my hand."
"Hope you're okay, Bruised-Hip Burn Victim."
"Hope so too! Splashed all up the side of my thumb, and up my arm and on my hip."
"Run cold water over it. Good luck getting your hip into the sink!"
"Mmm. Isn't that steak a little more done than you like?"
"Yeah. I was kinda winging it, time wise, and was distracted by dealing with the burn. The biggest burn:"
"That's gonna hurt in the sun tomorrow! Maybe you should go back to the store for some gauze."
"That sounds painful on its own. Putting on the oven mitt to finish cooking hurt it! The steak splashed a lot of hot oil onto my hand when I first put it in the pan, because it fell off the spatula early."
"Is there any accident you HAVEN'T had? Besides slamming your own leg in the car door, I mean..."
"Remember, I DID that! It just didn't break the skin on my leg. I showed you when I came out for the casino the first time."
"Oh, yeah. I guess my PTSD from my leg-hole blocked it out."
"I run my hand under cold water every time I get up. It's mostly fine. I'll see how it is in the morning. That distinct dark line around it is a bit more recent. The thumb is the worst. The splotches on my arm, torso, and thigh aren't as bad."
"You're going to run out of parts to hurt. Stay away from that scratching cat's door slot tomorrow."
"I'm not gonna be on that route. I HOPE!"
Tomorrow: The Pony's day gets a big thumbs-down...
