What do you get when you cross a very heavy frying pan, my glasses and the bridge of my nose?

That is the question of the day. HA You can only guess what is coming next but I thought I would type it here just once so I am not telling the story over and over to my mom, sister, Amy, etc. So .... yesterday was Aubrey's brother (Aubrey is Charlie's brother). He shares his birthday with their mother but this year she decided she was going to Charlestown, WV to do some gambling with friends (she is 84). So in years past, she has always been with Aubrey and they celebrate their birthdays together. This year she will come down in a few weeks and we will celebrate it all over again. So ... I made spaghetti for dinner and I was cleaning the dishes. I was actually drying this huge frying pan - this was one heavy frying pan - so how this happened I have no idea .... but while I was drying it, I guess I put it close to my face so I can see if I got it dry enough before I put it away and it slipped out my hand and went flying into my glasses which caused my glasses to press into the bridge of my nose. It hurt like crazy!!! It only bled a little and I thought for sure I would have a black & blue nose this morning but its just a tiny little scab there now and my nose is a tiny bit swollen but not too bad at all. So that is my story. I laugh now but it was not funny at the time! (Debbie, I know you are laughing out loud if you are reading this. Stop it right now!)

OUCH! Oh Sherri - I'm sorry! I'm glad you aren't black and blue and I hope the pain and swelling you do have goes away quickly.

Hugs,

Sorry about that frying pan incident. If I would you, I would take that as a sign to stop cooking, washing & drying dishes, or both! LOL!

Yeee.....ouch. I know that hurt. Looks like you've been spammed on your blog above. Can't get away from it anywhere! Hope you feel better soon!

I am not laughing, really I'm not Sherri. This is why reservations are better than home cooking!

Time to hang up the ole skillett and eat out. Hope your nose is better. Hope your Uncle Jimmy doesn't read your blog. He would relate.
