Yesterday on a sweet tweet with a couple of my friends they were telling us about a field trip they took on Saturday to a local crime lab. While it sounded very interesting and I would have loved to have been able to hang out with these gal pals of mine, I would not have been very good company for the lab field trip.
Unless the new look is an adult female walking around the crime lab with a trash can strapped to her face. Either that or I would have passed out and been on a gurney. Of course that sent me on a whole different track with me waking up in a coffin. Don't ask.
Captain Kidd has learned the hard way that I have a little problem with blood. But I can assure you that has not slowed down his thirst for weekend warrior projects in our backyard. Every year he takes on a new one and every year he does something that inevitably leads us to the emergency room. God bless that man.
Unfortunately not all of the ER trips have been for him. Fourth of July seven years ago we were hosting a big BB-Q when he decided that a piece of furniture needed to be fixed that day. Suffice to say he drilled a hole in his hand when his drill breached the wood. Who knew? I think that is the reason they insist you anchor whatever you are working on to a work station safely and NOT hold it in your hand.
When he came into the house he asked me if we had an band aids. Now in our house that is code, yes code for blood, but not alot of blood. Unfortunately on this day we had our code words messed up. Or he did. You got it, there was a lot of blood and when he showed it to me I toppled like a tree. Put a lovely gash in the back of my head. Three stitches later, yeah go ahead and laugh. It did give me a great story for the party later that day.
One of the things I can promise you is when I write there will be no blood and guts because quite honestly I don't think I could get through the writing draft. So what, I am a big baby. I can live with it. Don't judge me.
But after this discussion it made me wonder if the rest of my writer buddies, don't look now that would be you, has thing or ideas they would not feel comfortable writing about. Share with me.
