Becky posted about her crazy injuries this past week, and wanted to know if any of her readers injury themselves in ways that are "unconventional" to say the least. I do not remember a time I have been injured that HASN'T been "unconventional". Recently, I gave myself a slight concussion while cooking dinner. Becky wants to know exactly how one does this.

You would think this would be a great story. Making for awesome blog fodder. I mean, I was doing an everyday chore and ended up with a slight concussion. Unfortunately, my crazy injuries don't EVER have a good story behind them.
I gave myself the concussion by putting the pepper back into the spice cabinet, turning to stir a pot on the stove and hitting my forehead on the corner of the vent hood. I ran into it so hard I literally took a step backward and felt as though I would pass out. There was blood.
How I wish this story was more exciting than it actually is. Instead, I get to say "Hi, my name is Sara, and I'm a klutz."
In my defense, because I am taller than the average female, things like cabinet doors and vent hoods on stoves are just outside my peripheral vision. So, you know, out of sight, out of mind...
