my rings saved my life

..or at least my fingers.

my fam and i went to the beach yesterday (oh glorious southern california beaches, how i miss you more than i could ever express with stupid words). i was standing on my sisters car trying to get the surfboards down when blake slammed the passenger door shut. no problem right? except that my hand was in there.

it's weird what your mind thinks when things like this happen. and how quickly. it hurt, but it wasn't really painful. i was fully aware that my fingers were in the door, that i couldn't move, and that my rings were being crushed. i knew that the handle to the door was way too far away and there was no way i could contort my body into reaching it.

so i yelled. "BLAAAAAAKE!!! oh my god, open the door please. NOW!!!!!" he freaked a little, ran back to the car and opened the door. i pulled my hand out and my fingers were already swelling. i knew i'd better get my wedding rings off before i couldn't ever get them off. those rings. they saved my fingers from getting broke. at least one finger. my hand is totally fine. my rings are totally fine. i think that i might have superpowers. i mean, who gets their hand smashed in a car door and walks away unscathed?

PEOPLE WITH SUPERPOWERS DO!!!!!!! that's right. later tonight, i'm going to try flying (thanks bloggess). and tomorrow, i'll probably see if i can scale tall buildings and shit.

I'm pretty sure this means you're a superhero. Have you tried flying?

Jill said...

I think you need to reconsider flying. You didn't do to well flying off the ball in your office if I remember right. Glad your OK.....geeez you get into more toruble....lol!

My buddy Dan jumped up to ouch this bar thing at a factory and it snagged his ring and he came down WITHOUT his entire finger.

I know. Hurts to imagine.

Anyway, that's a story that's almost the exact opposite of your ring story.

I like the aggressive-aggressive tag. I sent Jon an email to challenge him to some one-on-one but he fears me. I would so dribble through his legs & shit.

This reminds of me of that old cartoon about the wonder twins and their magical rings. Maybe both you AND boyfriend have special powers activated through your rings.

Here's to still being intact. :)

let me know how the scaling of tall buildings go so I can start training my eyes to see through shit.

If we're calling dibs on emerging superpowers I call mind control. Even if only to control my own.

Chris said...

Um, all I can say to that one is OUCH!

Yikes. I slammed just one finger in my car door last summer and had to drive myself to the walk-in clinic. It was BROKE!

Clearly, I don't have the same superpowers as you do.

Glad you're okay. :)

Just if you do, remember to wear those rings, cause I think they are the source of your powers!

that girl said...

I had this experience when a ladder slammed shut on my knuckle.

OUCH.

Be safe -- wonder powers, activate!

Meg said...

OMG ow ow ow. Glad you had your rings on.
