A lesson learned

You know how on the directions for using a weed-eater, they say to wear boots and eye protection?

Well, while sun-glasses are a fine substitute for safety glasses, a pair of shorts and leather sandals are not good substitutes for a pair of jeans and boots. If you don't believe the directions, take my word for it.

I have to go change the band-aid now...

Battle wounds!

You could make up so many crazy stories for this one if you wanted! :-)

Ever tried to see if you were good enough with it to trim the hair off your leg?

yeah, don't do that.

I'm more curious as to what you did. I weed whack in shorts and tennis shoes all the time.

What happened... well, when I did the little tap-tap thing to get more trimmer wire, too much came out, and when it was cut off the chunk of plastic tried to imbedded itself in my ankle.

Barely drew blood, really. But still stings a little a day later.

Kinda like a papercut? Those are so minor yet sooo painful.
