Head Whackings

This morning as I sat on the edge of my bed to steady myself before taking on the day I reached up to give my head a nice scratching. As I dug my nails down through my hair I came across one tender spot, then another and then another. Oh, my head is sore.

Someday, I’m going to realize how tall I am. Until that glorious day comes I will continue to whack my head on just about anything that’s two inches shorter than me. Apparently, there’s nothing too valuable above my eyeballs, because anyone WITH a brain would have learned by now that my basement is not getting any taller.

We have an old house. Our basement is very shallow, like less than six feet and last time I checked I am six feet tall. I have left large chunks of my scalp all over the pipes and floor beams that make up the ceiling of the basement. I hate toting stuff down there. Did I mention the laundry room is in the basement?

Head whacking occurrences in the basement this week= 1

My office is very tiny. There are shelves fitted around the walls which is great for books, pictures, piles of paper and one cat. I decided to tidy up my office this week which meant picking up all the books, pictures and piles of paper the cat shoved off the shelf and futilely put them back on the shelves, when I stood up I… THUNK. My head is now embedded with the wooden corner of a shelf.

Head whacking occurrences in the office this week= 1

And sadly, there was something I did in the barn, but I can’t remember the circumstances. Maybe because I’ve hit my head one too many times?????

Head whacking occurrences in the barn this week= 1 or possibly more, hard to tell, since I must be suffering from short term memory loss.

I think I need to start wearing a helmet.
