Subject: So I hit myself in the head with a sledgehammer...

Don't worry, nothing serious, just the handle. Got a
bit of a bump, but went right on shovelgloving (how's
that for shoglo-macho?). My wife burst out laughing
when I told her. I guess it was bound to happen
eventually, right? Basically I decided to look down
while "churning butter" and jabbed myself right above
the eye. I wish my office weren't such a ghost town
this morning, I wanted to walk in and greet everyone's
astonished stares with "you should see the other guy."

Anyway, the moral is: be careful; even Mr. Shovelglove
himself isn't beyond smacking himself in the head once
(just once, let's hope) in a while.
