:icon_ rofl:bcsman; here ya go
i fell over my carry air tank, a while back, that was the first yuk yuk. i got banged up some. i moved it out of the way, so it wouldnt happen again. i resigned myself to make sure i carry a flashlight of some sort, as my night vision, aint like it used to be..
anywho,,,,, when out of town for a day, to go to my friends hunting place. 60 or more acres, plus a pond. i got a 1 day fishing license, cause no one aroud here much gos fishing, an least i could wet a line. got a 30 pack of bud. i wasnt gonna drink all that in 1 day, but it would save me a trip to the store later on. practical.
on the way back , a light rain developed. by the time i got here, the ground was getting wet, plus i had on those new-type tenna-shoes where its mesh at the top,an your feet get wet, even if its the slightest amount of dew on the ground.
we arrived here, an the rain was changing from a misty type to drops. i wanted to get in the house fast, so as i would have dry socks. my flashlights were in my carry bags. so i grab the bud first, make a bee line for the house. just as i was getting to the door i trip.
i did move the air tank out of the way, but not the extension cord, of the air hose, which both are wet, slippery, an tangle-some. I'm definitely not a weeble. i do fall down.
lucky, the 22 beers in the case cushioned part of my fall. however, my head struck my small ancient air compressor. my head, an the larger pulley, had a confrontation. the 8in. pulley won.
i got a gash on my forehead, through my hat, which sustained no damage. a nice 1.75 goose egg, close to 3/8 raised. 1st time i got one on that side., an i got to see a flash with just a little stars.
the point of this story is to clarify the difference, between, ignorant, an STUPID. i could ave cleaned op that area a bit more. guess what? its still like that..
Dang man, I thought I was accident prone. I think you have me soundly beat!
