Black Eyed Susan (or Kate)

I'm feeling a little stupid tonight.
I gave myself a black eye.

The girls and I were making Gabby's bed and Grace was plopped down on the floor on top of the sheet I needed next. I grabbed a corner of the sheet and pulled as hard as I could but Grace had a heavy butt thing going on. I gave the sheet one last really hard yank and it slipped out from under her sending my fist directly into my face.
I can't believe it.
I wandered around Goodwill tonight and people were smiling at me with that look that said...... "Poor thing".
Hope this goes away by next weekend when we're doing family pictures.
"Whatch you lookin at?"

Ah, thanks for telling us -
That's a pretty elaborate story there Kate - what REALLY happened!?

It is actually darn funny - and knowing you - I know that it really happened just like that.

You brute - beating up your poor helpless eye.

Black eyes are the worst as to the response they get in public. James probably won't want to go out with you for a while - everyone will give him dirty looks.

Sounds like something I would do - looks painful. Hope you're better soon!

What's with the comment stealing. I was going to say 'let's see the other guy'...

:) poor eye. Your actually eyes are so bright blue! They contrast nicely with the black/purple.

Boy howdy, that's a heckuva shiner. How many dirty looks has James gotten so far? ha ha ha....hope you heal quick!

You and I should hang out. I once broke my own nose with a baseball bat. It takes a special talent to beat yourself up- we're just gifted, that's all.
