So many kids, I don't know what to do.

I Won't Play Putt Putt. You Can't Make Me.

Here is why.

(In all honestly, I don't think my older brother was really that excited.  I was.  I had a totally cool swimsuit that year.)  (Tayte absconded with my yellow marker which is why my brother and I have orange hair.)

 My mother was afraid I had lost an eye.  We got in the car to head to the nearest ER.  In a move exhibiting quick reflexes I have not seen from my mom before or since she shut the visor before I could see the damage in the mirror.

 They also CUT OFF my super cool swimsuit.  Hello?

I also said many other funny things.  I kept called calling the male doctor "ma'am" and I said he was there to take my "whiskey".  Apparently I am quite humorous when knocked nearly unconscious.

I am lucky the plastic surgeon was good and I still have most of that eyebrow.  I am also lucky the bad perm eventually grew out.  (Hey.  It was the 80's)
I can't feel about an inch of my forehead over the scar and that side of my head is still numbish. 

I cringe at the thought of ever playing miniature golf with my own children.  Who really thought that was a good idea anyway?  Who said, "Let's put these hyper children in close proximity to each other and then give them long hard weapons made of metal?" 

There is my story. 

Let me know if you got a chuckle and I may start doing this regularly. (All the stores don't have to center around injuries.)
(Saigie really enjoyed watching me color.)

  9. That was funny. At least you have a good excuse not to go putt-putting. I just hate it.

    I loved the illustrations, well done!

  10. Yeah, putt-putt can be dangerous. Love the illustrations to go along with the story.

  11. Ohmygosh - you totally reminded me of the time I turned the putt putt course river red! Running water, flip-flops, and a klutzy girl do not mix well.

    Sorry I laughed... but you told that tale hilariously! I loved the pictures and could totally imagine it!

    Thanks for linking up - this was a GREAT post!

  12. I would say that story was really funny....but man do I have a headache now!

  13. I gasped at the club part, like I was watching a horror movie! Oh Me, Oh My! And I thought my 3 big brothers put me through some nonsense. At least, I'm not numb anywhere!

    And a big thumbs up to the artist renditions. I like it!

  14. This should just be a regular feature, Heather - seriously.

    Five stars, Sista. Five stars. :)

    Does that make you a numbskull? (Sorry, I couldn't resist...)

  15. Too funny! Thanks for following mommy Time Out

  16. Heather, I LOVED this...just get your yellow marker back, would ya!
    Yeah, I'm with you, the whole let your kids play with weapons doesn't really appeal to me. Actually the whole playing with your kids at all doesn't appeal to me either, but your post wasnt' about that.
    Glad the part of your brain that is responsible for humor wasn't damaged.
