Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Neighbors nothing, I was at work! You see, we were stringing barbed wire around the library when some of it snapped back and whacked me right in the middle of the forehead. Now, the forehead is full of little veins and things, and bleeds a LOT when cut open, like mine was. So there I was, my hands full of barbed wire and blood just GUSHING down from my forehead, soaking my clothes, making my shoes all squishy. I wouldn't, of course, have minded much except that this was my VERY OWN BLOOD! Fortunately, one of the staff members saw my situation and managed to free the wire from my hands and I could then clap my hands to my forehead and stop the bleeeding (I told everyone that I really did NOT need a tourniquet around my neck for such a minor wound). I sloshed off to my office, where I took off my clothes so that I wouldn't have to sit in them, and called my wife to bring my some fresh clothes. I used some of those moist towelette things to clean up and I sat down at the computer to get some work done. Long about the time she brought my clothes, I was stuck to the chair. I was fortunate enough that she helped me, but I found her giggling and laughter less than sympathetic.
Is everything clear now?
