Sympathies: pleased to know I'm not the only one who has done this.

I've caught my sock under my chair. Does that count? *g*

I feel your pain - I once broke two toes (the ring toe and baby toe) making the bed. I also sprained my wrist doing the same thing, only on a different occasion. Needless to say, I don't make the bed anymore *g*

I habitually roll over my skirt (I tend to wear long full ones), thereby temporarily immobilizing myself....

Hope your foot feels better!

Oh gosh...sorry to hear. I wince in sympathetic pain over "Office Dangers" stories. Sad to say I've got yours beat. Two years ago I gave myself a concussion (and a joy called "Post Concussive Syndrome") by picking up the telephone too fast! CONK.
Feel better soon!

I dislocated my pinkie toe walking in to the couch once, when I was about three months pregnant with my first.

It was literally sticking out at a right angle from the outside of my foot. It hurt a lot.

I called my Mom, an emergency room nurse, hoping for some advice and sympathy.

She yelled, "Why weren't you wearing shoes? You know you're clumsy!"


Yeah, she met us at the hospital later...but still.

Ouch! May I suggest steel toed slippers. :)

.........I shouldn't be laughing, should I? ;)

Oh, ack! You didn't break it, did you? I broke my foot standing up (it was early, my whole leg had fallen asleep... everyone thought it was hilarious, of course).

And do you have a list of the other 4691 ways to injure yourself? *G*

Been there, done that. Hope your foot is better soon!

Ow, ow, ow!

I broke my foot once when I stepped on a rock. I was wearing flimsy little sandals, and it just hit the right spot.

Hope your foot gets better soon. :0)

You know you're getting old when the simple act of sitting down in your computer chair can throw your knee out of joint for a month. There's my chair. Lowering, lowering, knees bending, everything's going fine, and then oh no! The dreaded SNAP!! Followed by muffled screams and me lying on my none-too-sanitary kitchen floor wondering how I'm gonna waitress for the next several weeks with a leg that doesn't bend.
