My Very Own Fight Club

It’s not every day that I get to talk about the time I punched myself in the face. Total spoiler alert, I know. Well, my sister and I have been shopping quite a bit lately, which means we either have to drive separate or play musical car seats. For both our amusement and the girls, we have been choosing to play the car seat game.

Since my sister is expecting her second child, that leaves all the heavy awkward lifting to me. While installing Miss O’s seat in my car, I wanted to make sure it was nice and tight so that the seat wouldn’t budge. I was giving the strap one final tug when the clip slipped off the hook and my fist went flying towards my face. My knuckles crashed into my forehead and the heel of my hand struck my glasses driving the nose piece into the side of my nose and smudging my lens. Fortunately my glasses survived the attack of my fist and I only had to tweak the nose piece a little to get it back into place. And I am so glad my face took the impact instead of Miss O if an accident had happened.

I bought myself a soda after that. I needed the bubbles and caffeine to battle the headache that was brewing, and Miss O needed an orange lemon-aid from Old McDonalds (also known as orange Hi-C from McDonalds, but don’t tell her that).
