JOELLE’S TALES: FIRST THURSDAY OF THE MONTH #TMAT120 #WRITING #PROMPT FOR MARCH 7, 2019

tmat120

Today’s prompt is:  A funny event in your life. 

 

A once stupid event in hindsight becomes a funny event.

It was winter, and we had a wood-burning heater, which required me to cut up wood.

This particular day it was cold and wet, and I had stored wood in the pagoda in the back yard.

The pagoda also had a few lines strung across it for hanging out washing.

Thinking I knew what I was doing, I swung my axe only for it to get caught in the line and then, upon release, it crashed into my head.

There was blood everywhere, and as I sat on the bathroom floor with an old towel controlling the blood flow, I heard my household rolling with laughter but very little sympathy.

    Yep, I can imagine that. 🙂

  2. Sadje says:

    Ouch, that must’ve hurt. The wound and the laughter.

  3. Prior... says:

    Ouch – good take and hope you healed quickly

  4. Lyn says:

    That could have turned out a lot worse, Michael. So glad you survived.

    120 words of humor so dark, I thought a mile wide tornado was coming at me. That was one day you probably wished you’d stayed in bed.

    That had to be humiliating! To make it worse, you were forced to take care of the wound on your own while everyone laughed. I can only imagine how much that had to hurt.

  6. floatinggold says:

    Ouch! I thought it would end with just a bunch of clothes falling onto you/ the floor and getting dirty and needing a re-wash. This version was just painful. Glad you’re ok.

    Good heavens, that sounds terrible. I can’t imagine laughing about it.
