Happiness never lays its finger on its pulse.
While sneaking off for a few quiet BLOGGER minutes tonight all heck broke loose.
I swear on all that is holy I am not giggleing while I type this!!!!!!
Hondo was upstairs replacing the turn motor in the microwave. When done he walked into the garage to put away the tools he had used. While attempting to come back into the house the door slammed shut...unfortunately he had not removed his finger from the jam. The door closed and LOCKED with his finger stuck inside it....he banged on the door for several minutes because his keys were hanging on the inside of the door on the hook (at least we knew where they were). No one heard his cries for help, or the insistant banging...because the dogs were barking. He was finally able to reach the hidden key we keep on the shelf and unlock the door and let himself in.
His finger is a lovely shade of purple...not sure if he is going to keep his nail...it is always amazing how large a body part can swell...and to top it all off it is his BIRD finger ( the kids are impressed with his ability to shoot!).
We have placed the finger in a glass of ice water, I am sure that he will not lose it, but I am almost positive that he won't be picking his nose anytime in the future.
It may never be easy, it will most certainly not be dull, but it will always be worth it.
