So at college, you're exposed to all sorts of magnificent injuries, right. Some magnificently unlucky, some monumentally stupid. This... this was some of both.

Freshman year, I see this guy walking on crutches, with a bandage on his foot, right. I've had random stuff done to my feet, and I figure "hey, the guy had toe surgery," something like that. Nooo. Not so much.

Talking with him, he and some friends were apparently preparing for a party, and (heh, I almost couldn't help but laugh)

PINCHED HIS BIG TOE OFF (*poof*, off) WHEN THE BEER KEG FELL OUT OF THE TRUCK ON HIS FOOT.

That will make a good story for the grandchildren.

OW. *looks at Aggie Ring* There's a reason why I don't wear my ring in the plant. I'd never think of that happening in a parking garage, though.

I always hear about those kind of things happening. And every time it makes me cringe. A lot. OUCH.

You wanna hear about Aggie Ring related injuries... one time Mary found some reason to backhand me (in the chest, she's not that tall remember) in response to some smartass comment of mine while I was driving. Usually I dodge these kind of reprisals, but this time I was strapped to my seat by the seatbelt.

Totally got a bruise. Well, not really a bruise, but it hurt for a minute or two.

Yeah, I've got nothin.
