When Accidents Happen

Updated on December 7, 2011

Ouch That Hurts

Before you say anything I know it was my fault

I should have picked up a silly old cassette tape that I was listening to

My wife came along and wacked her baby toe

I didn't hear her scream so it couldn't be that bad

Then again she was in the house with the windows down and I was in the front yard

But I knew when I came in I had done something wrong

I said the toe is probably just brusied

Hours later it was a beautiful black and blue and purple color

The toe looks sore and she reminded me it is

Now I don't want to mention it but I had to

Does this mean love making is out of the question ?

I didn't hear an answer

Maybe she needs a little more time to think

I will take that for a maybe later

I will leave it at that and keep my hopes up remember don't hit her toe

Whatever you do before or after

My wife was good about it when she said you have to pick things up

I said jokingly you have to look where you are going

She clearly reminded me later this week you can organize things better

I have pulled out some old tapes and have enjoyed listening to them

It brought back some great memories

I didn't want to put them back

I might mix them up

So I left them on the floor in plain sight

mmmmm uhuh then silence

You have to know when you are on thin ice

This is one of those times

Winters coming early this year

I feel Jack Frost nipping at my toes

Another joke she did not find funny

Now this is the time I had better be real careful

Lay low and by all means do a little extra around the house

I had better dust off the saying

Can I get that dear ?

How can I help you ?

Give her lots of extra kisses and hugs

Do you know a broken toe has to heal on its own

Isn't that an interesting fact to learn the hard way

This could take weeks and we are on going on vacation real soon

Boy it is amazing how one toe can get in the way

I will give her a loving tip of advice

You should put the toe on ice

What some fourteen hours ago

Elevate it and see how it is in the morning

You can tape it to the next toe to keep it stiff

It is when I put pressure on it and have it inside my sneaker it hurts the most

Just think of counting toes jumping over the fence it might put you to sleep

No you might think of one toe stubbing on the fence

That is not good

I can hear her say

Do you guys have to fight on mommies foot


Come on guys be good (referring to my two cats that came to lay on the bed with you)

They love you and want to give you company

One toe,two toes

What's next

Broken toe, broken toes

My wifes not mad

Even though her toe looks bad

Soon we will forget this ever happened

Then you will be tip toeing through the tulips again

If I had just moved that silly cassette tape

You would be smiling instead of taking two asprins and seeing me in the morning

Be a real trooper

What would happen if you were in the Army

What would you say

I broke my toe I have to go on leave

No you would wrap it up and suck it up

Pretend you just signed up for six years

Now see how lucky you are ?

You are home with me

How come you look like a bull who has seen red ?

I think I will leave you alone now

I am going to make myself disappear

Love you honey and don't forget to elevate the toe and keep it still

I think I will wait till she is asleep before I climb into bed

I guess one toe makes all the difference

      P.S. Invest in some PPE and wear it until your transferring project is complete. ;)

      Dangggg!!!! My advice - get a cassette box or put them ALL on an MP3 player! You can attach it to your belt, and the only way she'll break a toe on it is if she's high-kicking you. ;)
