I'll be honest, I'm prone to dumb blonde moments. It happens. At my thrival job, I'll minority screw someone's order up or forget to get them a napkin or a water...again, something minor, but I'll still defuse the situation with something like "by the way, I'm not so bright, I dropped myself on my own head as a child" and many times, they'll laugh and then ask how it is possible to drop oneself on one's own head. I have been known to defy science. therefore, it's possible for me and it involves a missing stair.

It's Xmas 1978 (yes I'm dating myself), I'm 5 years old and we are leaving my grandparents house after a day of holiday excitement, present opening, dinner (at the kid's table for me of course) and birthday fun for my dad (yes, his bday was on Xmas...talk about screwed...oh wait, double screwing because not only did he share his birthday with The Baby Jesus, but he also shared it with HIS TWIN!). I decided hopping down my grandparents' front porch steps one by one is a great idea. Sure enough on the last step, I miss & hit a patch of ice instead which sends me flying and I hit the back of my head on the concrete step. This is me throwing myself on my own head.

Merry Christmas family, Happy Birthday dad, hope a trip to the emergency room was on your wish list because that's what I gift wrapped and got you as a present! Such a frugal 5-year old I was....I didn't pay a dime for that present....i was crafting my gifts even back then.

Thus how a missing stair has become my go-to excuse for minor brain farts ever since.

And now....if you want the movie version of this story (or you're just too lazy to read), I made a video as well.

It's unlisted on my Youtube page so if you're having problems viewing it from here, click on this link instead.

Very funny entry, well done.
Mar. 26th, 2014 05:50 am (UTC)
thank you

Haha, that is definitely the kind of thing my graceful self would do. I'm rather surprised I haven't yet.

oh wait, double screwing because not only did he share his birthday with The Baby Jesus, but he also shared it with HIS TWIN!).
Hoo, boy. The unluckiness, it burns!

But the 1978 version of it would have been much worse. The emergency room is never fun, but especially not sometime like Christmas or your birthday. Or both.

Haha...it's wouldn't have been half the fun doing that than writing and reading about it...god bless you!..:)

i hope i don't have any brain damage. I remember missing some school so i think i had some post-concussion crap before they knew what that was.

i don't remember it hurting...best part of the concussion.
Mar. 25th, 2014 07:24 pm (UTC)
This is so something I would do. xD
Mar. 26th, 2014 05:52 am (UTC)
i'm surprised i haven't done it again.

Merry, Christmas, family! Happy birthday, dad!

The way you delivered this line in your video especially made me laugh. You're roughly my younger brother's age! (I was born in 1970).

thank you....delivery is everything in comedy. comedic timing
Mar. 26th, 2014 12:42 am (UTC)
Lol. Probably not the best Christmas present for your family.
Mar. 26th, 2014 05:52 am (UTC)
i like to keep things interesting

OUCH. Also I have a cousin with a Christmas birthday and I think people realized she would feel unlucky and so everyone kind of bent over backwards for her - but that would be much harder with a twin.
Mar. 26th, 2014 05:53 am (UTC)
i strangely know another person born on xmas who is also a twin. what's the likelihood of that?

It was funny, but sad too. (your poor head) I watched your video too. :)
