My Marsha Brady Moment
Oh My Nose!
Yes, I found myself shouting that very phrase on Saturday. A few years ago I had a rather large dog smash into me while playing fetch, breaking my nose. This required extensive surgery to fix and straighten the ol' Shnoz. Saturday my youngest daughter Trevi decided to jump off a bed at ramming speed and hit my nose with her head. It's like I had a bullseye painted on the middle of my face. She couldn't have aimed better if she tried.
I caught my daughter in mid air as she bounced off my head, and then I grabed my nose and did my best Marsha Brady impression. Like before, it's not swollen, but it does resemble a lightening bolt. Now I have to look forward to yet another painful recovery IF there is anything the docs can do. Who knows, they just may say 'screw it' and leave me with the lightening bolt.
Of course Trevi felt bad and kissed the boo boo, telling me it was all better. She then proceeded to try the same stunt. Heck, she might as well just hit me with a frying pan and finish my nose off.

So, when are we going to see a picture of the lightening bolt schnoz? :))1:48 PM
I'm sorry - I know how it hurts and that it's not funny (I seem to always get hit in the nose, too), but I'm sitting here laughing my head off. You shouldn't have written it funny if you didn't want us to laugh. Thanks!10:27 PM
