In an attempt to best your woes, Shark - I once took a strimmer through a fresh dog turd, which had the effect of splattering me, head to toe.

I realized that I needed some assistance, but I could feel that there was turd shrapnel on my lips, so I didn't want to say anything - so I was tapping the back door to the house with a (non-shitty) stick, and groaning like a zombie trying to get someone's attention.

You'd have thought that The Generation Game had nothing to teach us - but sometimes they'd challenge middle-aged, middle-class couples to eat a creamy pastry without licking their lips.

Heh, I once strimmed a very dead hedgehog, spattering myself in pungent Walking Deadness. I thought it was weed juice until I came to pick the bits out of my beard. Sometimes I marvel that I'm still alive :-D

Crikey, Sharky, you really know how to do things. No half measures for you. I cringed reading your escapades. Feel better, man.

Thanks, vB - feeling seriously sore right now. An early night beckons.

Well if it's any consolation, that tale of woe gave me a good LOL. Sorry, I'm a terrible person.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

No you're not, Tips - it was extremely funny to watch. I may even change my name to The Legendary Wile E. Coyote!

I didn't want to say, but as the events unfolded it did feel like I was reading the script of a cartoon :)

I remember my dad strimming a frog once. He didn't recommend it. Funny story as long as you're okay!

I lost my Dante badge last night. A little good crest I've had on my winter jacket pocket for ages. Can't even remember where I got it. Bah.

Now THAT's an impediment, Cosh. Hope you find it. Check unused boots in the cupboard, it might have fallen into one of the.

Holy Heck, Sharkie! You really have been through the wars lately. Hope that you'll be back on the mend soon.

In the meantime, I attach the following link, as I was reminded of this little gem while reading of your recent mishap.

Heh, classic!

I'm doing fine, thanks - still a little stiff but the pain's easing and the swelling's going down.

Feck, Sharkie, glad you're on the mend.  Cosh, that's a fecker.  That's the kind of thing I really hate losing, and I lose things all the time.

What seems very much like a "bomb scare" style threat has been circulating on TikTok that suggests there will be some kind of violent assault in a US school today (the 17th), so (across the entire country) many schools are cancelling classes - many students are anyway staying home.

I'm sitting waiting for my class to arrive.

It would be a ridiculous overreaction - if this wasn't the USA.

Odd, though, that something that used to disrupt a single building or institution can, with the help of social media (and ridiculous gun laws) affect an entire multi-state nation.

I broke my middle toe on Thursday whilst getting ready for work and now I'm off for a few days recovering.

My printer is intermittently jamming, and not in a fun Bob Marley reggae kind of way.  :(
