Sandpapery [Jul. 4th, 2011|06:37 pm]
So not only did I manage to scrape my lower lip on the bottom of the swimming pool last week, on Friday I scraped both my knees, too.

I think our pool is just exceptionally abrasive.

Okay, okay, I know that the bit everyone's interested here is "how did you manage to scrape your lip on the bottom of the pool?!?"

The first thing is, I was swimming with my contacts in, so I had to keep my eyes shut tight whenever I was underwater. So I was gliding along underwater and I felt my trunks starting to slide down. I reached back to pull them up, and I think the change in profile caused my angle of attack to dip downward, and in short order I bounced off the bottom with the lower part of my face and my sternum.

No significant damage done in either case, just... ow! Pool, you are supposed to be a nice thing, don't be all scrapey!</i>

Lucky it was just your lip, then, really.

"How on earth did you...?"
"Get the Neosporin, and then we will never speak of this again."
