I always thought that the worst pain from a minor injury was getting the end of a bungee cord in the head/face.
(See where this is going?)
Yesterday, while changing the front tire on my bike, the empty rim slipped from my hand and landed on my big toe. The sock I was wearing was no help in cushioning the impact, either.
The language I used was as blue as the toenail became, words I wouldn’t use in front of my mother. Luckily there was ample snow outside to plunge the throbbing victim into.
So, we not have a new contender until the hook end of the bungee slips from its moorings once again.
