I was working on repairing the deck, or rather the ramp to the deck, today, and I got a boo-boo. But you expected that, right? That's me.
I was trying to get the old rotten post out of the ground to put the new one in. I'm having trouble getting it out, and I was pulling on it, wiggling it, etc. At one point, I slipped while I was pulling, and I was about to fall forward, so I threw my hand down to catch myself, and I unfortunately put it on top of the splintered post. All my weight was on it, and I immediately knew it was not a good thing. I'm very glad to say I had on leather gloves, as I always wear them while I'm doing that kind of work. If I hadn't had them on, I'm quite sure I would have driven those nasty, long splinters of rotten wood into my palm. As it is I only have a deep bruise. Hurts like hell, but it is better than the alternative! I've taken extra strength Tylenol and put a pain-relief rub on it, and I'm feeling much better. I doubt I'll be doing much on the deck tomorrow.
Just so you know, I do not run with scissors. Honest.
