Yesterday, Bruce and I were getting ready to put the insulated ends onto our heated water hose. I put on my jacket and hat. My hat was getting blown off by the wind, so I was leaning down to keep the hat from blowing off. At the same time, I was adjusting the hat tie so the hat wouldn’t blow off and I was walking around the rig. I should have stopped walking and just fiddled with my hat, but noooooo, I thought I could do both.
I made the turn to soon and walked right into the front of our rig, hitting my forehead hard enough that I saw black. I couldn’t move, it hurt so bad. I heard myself making a keening sound. Bruce heard it as well. He came running around the rig to see what had happened. I was able to grit out, “I hit my head.”
He helped me to the picnic table, so I could sit down. He gently took off my hat and looked at my forehead. He said, “I don’t see any blood. There isn’t any bruising. You do have a lump in your hair. I don’t want to touch it. Do you want to go inside and sit or lie down?” At this point, the intense pain was starting to fade and I told him, “Just let me sit here for a bit, and I’ll be able to help.” Bruce sat with me until I was able to get up.
Once we finished getting the insulated ends onto our heated water hose, I went inside and just sat for a bit. I did take a couple of Aleve(TM). They did a great job of knocking out the pain that I had knocked into my head.
Yes, the joke’s on me, walking into an RV should be through the open door!
