After the 30 day no-accessorry challenge (hate me, I call it something different in every post) I put out just a few of my choicest accessories in every room. In my office, that meant I put the antlers back on top of the armoire.
Of course, then I was taking photos for that book which will not be spoken of and I found myself standing in odd corners and balancing on small items to get just the right angle. At one point I was trying to get a straight on shot of my chair and I was standing in front of the armoire and happened to back into it.
With a thud.
What happened next was shocking. Remember, I had just a few hours earlier put those antlers back but I hadn’t pushed them waaaaaaaay back like they had been for years prior. When my hiney bumped the front of the armoire the antlers fell down and my backside was in their path of destruction. Their pointy grip of death. Their sharp, inescapable objects of impalement.
I was punctured.
If I didn’t have such a cushy hind end, the antlers could have really caused some damage.
Let my puncture wound stand as a testament to us all, please remember to secure your antlers. And while you are at it, don’t hang heavy things above your bed.
