Taking my aunts word that the paper bag of burnable stuff only had tissues in it (she forgot she put the areosol can in there, I found it while sifting the fire).
Spilling a pot of hot coffee down my diaper (third degree burns in unpleasent places) (thank the gods I don’t remember that).
Riding a bike with no brakes. Down hill. Not knowing there were no brakes. Stopping self by crashing into a building, then rolling down some stairs.
Taking my first driving lesson downhill on a cliff-edged road, panicking, mistaking the gas for the brake.
Edging closer to the Bay of San Francisco, stumbling and nearly falling down that cliff.
Ignoring the “buzzing” feel when I turned the garage light on and off (the lightswitch housing was cracked and I was getting minorly electrocuted).
Helping in a massive house cleaning and move in, following someone’s attack on a bathroom with amoinia after they’d doused the place in bleach.
Climbing down from high places with things in my hands (I was quite young and suffered the first of many adventure concussions).
Grabbing a burning pillow with my hand, on the spot it was burning/melting.
Blocking a heavy (padded) weapon thrust with my bare hand without proper planning (broke a finger).
Playing a game with another friend, see who is faster: the person smashing two rocks together or the person with their hand resting between the rocks. (broke a finger).
Putting my hand in my back pocket (broke another finger).
Riding a horse that I’d not cinched the saddle on tightly enough (ever ridden under a horse?). Luckily I fell off into a bramble bush.
Tickling the whithers on a horse by putting my feet too far back (first time on a horse, I was five, it was a long trail ride). I was bucked off and kicked on my way down.
