This week's Get-to-Know-YOU Question:
What was your most embarrassing injury?

Laurie, from Created by Laurie:
There are two times I have been injured that I wish I had a better story to tell.  The first was when I fractured my arm - I fell out of a chair!  The second was in 8th grade, I went to get out of my desk and as I pushed up I dislocated my shoulder...embarrassing (and painful!).  No crazy bike stunts or climbing adventures...Just getting out of a desk...*sigh*

MY answer:
I hope you all don't laugh too hard.  My most embarrassing injury was when I was in grade school and just learning how to use a hair blow dryer.  For some strange reason (I still don't know why I did this), I rested the hot dryer on my cheek...Yeah, I know, super ridiculous, right?...I had the burn mark of a hair dryer grill on my cheek for a week.  So mortifying!!!  I'm so glad it didn't scar.

Well I was having a hard time thinking of a time when I had the most embarrassing injury but it just so happens that yesterday as I was walking out of my room, singing at the top of my lungs, I managed to bang my pinky toe on the side of the wall.  Of course my "wonderful" singing immediately stopped, as the only thing I could do was just stand there and wait for the pain to pass.  Of course my husband couldn't help but laugh at me from the other room.  And yes, walking is still a little painful.

What Happens at Grandma's wasn't able to answer the Question of the Week, so this is a short blog description:
This blog is filled with wonderful and creative ideas, crafts and recipes you can do with little ones and pets too!

Now it's YOUR turn!

At a family reunion, I broke my baby finger in three different spots, requiring surgery, pins and months of rehab. All because I tripped, fell forward and crashed into my uncle's big belly... it's was quite humiliating for both him and I! :-)

When I was in high school I was running down stairs to go out a sliding glass door to catch the bus and I ran smack into the door. Bruised my knee pretty bad and had to limp for awhile after my dad came running to see what that loud bang was!

I was in the 10th grade and they were tearing up the sidewalks around where the new school was almost finished in preparation for tearing down the old school in a couple of weeks as summer set in. I managed to turn my head when I thought I heard my name and tripped smack down into the cement right in front of the entire boys track team. Whoever called me, I never knew, they were probably too embarrassed to get involved as the boys were laughing hysterically. It was embarrassing and dog gone it, it hurt!

Hmmm....Most embarassing moment with an injury? It would have been walking down the street in heels and a skirt. I didn't see this pot hole coming up on a busy side walk. Yah! Not fun! All guys were there too! Thanks for hosting! Stop by my blog op and show off your favorite posts going on all weekend :)

Hanging onto my brothers bike seat as he pulled me down a gravel road (me on roller blades). When we hit pavement, I wiped out just as one of the guys from my class came by. I think he wrote about it in every yearbook.

When I was in high school, I jumped down the stairs at my house, and I sprained my ankle. But even then, I still really wanted to go to the movies with my friend, so I went limping!

Okay, I am going to share my most embarrassing injury. My sister and I were on a boy's lacrosse team because there were not enough girls to make a team.

I was on defense because I was terrible at catching the ball so I don't know why anyone would throw it to me. I missed. The ball didn't. I was hit hard by that rubber lacrosse ball right on the pubic bone. It hurt like a sun of a gun.

Our coach, who happened to be male, came running over to see if I was okay. I just kept rocking back in forth in pain and grabbing my upper thigh. He kept asking to see where I got hurt.

I was twelve at the time. There was no way I was showing him or talking about my injury with all those boys standing around. I sucked it up and limped back to benches.

I can't even share the WHOLE story, it's that embarrassing! At a work holiday party, during a dance, my husband out of the blue decided to "dip" me. I was totally unprepared, lost my balance and went sprawling across the floor, landing right at the feet of the CEO! Smacked my head on the floor and SO wished I just would have been out like a light! :) Thanks for hosting the party!!

Well okay, if you want embarrassing, how about this? It's not an injury, but this is the first time I've seen myself as your featured blogger! Your initial email must be lost in the pile of neglected messages that I've ignored over this very busy past few weeks! I'm so sorry! I love your blog, the party, and to be mentioned is a lovely compliment. THANK YOU!

One time I did one of those side jumps where you jump up and clap your feet together like a leprachaun. I had back pain for 2 weeks.

Also I did it because I was really excited about the chocolate cake I just bought.

When I was a freshman in high school, we were doing track events during gym. I went to jump over a hurdle and tripped over it and when I fell, a tiny rock went into the side of my knee and sort of dragged a line of cut skin into my knee. I thought I was fine and tried to walk it off as blood poured and I had to walk ALL THE WAY back into the building to the nurse. I should have had a stitch or two but didn't want to go to the hospital so then I had to hobble around and try not bending my knee for a while so it wouldn't open up. I was just soooooooooo embarrassed! I still have a fabulous scar.
