Badges of Honor

I engaged in a couple of chores around the house for which I was awarded two, count 'em, two badges of honor horror. First, I moved a bureau in order to access an electrical outlet. After inserting plug and moving dresser back into place, I saw blood streaming down my right index finger. Good flow, too, no itty-bitty trickle. I haven't the foggiest clue. Anyway, the second band-aid managed to stanch the flow.

An hour or so later I was working behind the refrigerator, and thinking to get a dust bunny under the back edge of the box, I stuck my left hand beneath the behemoth. I cannot tell you how quickly I jerked it back, only to find a double slice half-inch long down the back of my left other index finger. That little sucker fan was rotating like a dervish. Who knew that thing was under there?

So, all in all, not a very surprising record for a couple hours of chores. A certain person tells me I am "an accident waiting to happen." No, I am not. I go right ahead on and have the accident, especially if it is a possibility during the commission of a household task.

So, on a much brighter note, my kind friend at Secondary Roads has granted me this lovely award. I accept it as a badge of honor. Thank you, Chuck.

The rules of the award state that you must post it on your blog together with the name of the person who granted you this award and a link to his/her blog.

Pass the award on to 15 other blogs you have recently discovered* and think are great! Remember to contact the bloggers you’ve awarded to let them know they have been chosen. Here we go. YOU are awarded this honor:
*I have not necessarily "recently discovered" these. They are award-worthy blogs which I believe you will enjoy reading.

Ouch! You're not supposed to do that. You've chosen wisely in passing along that fine award, which you so richly deserve. Keep up the good work my friend.

Thinking J might be right about the accident waiting to happen!
