I rebroke my foot on a stupid wood chip and Steve actually dislocated his knee while simply picking up sticks in his back yard. So when I asked Christine her weird way that she got hurt we were both curious to see what happened. Surprise filled the room when she informed us that MULTIPLE times she has stabbed the inside of her throat with a tortilla chip. SERIOUSLY? How big are those chips? LOL. On our social media someone commented that they enjoyed reading all the answers so without further adieu here you go …

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What’s the weirdest way you have ever been physically hurt?

  • Leaned over to pick up a pencil and pulled my groin
  • Fell threw a stair. I was replacing the treads and painting and fell in when I was going down backwards
  • A car seat spring sprung through my arse. Ambulance had to be called during a thunderstorm where the streets were flooded. It was a coil so all the EMT's could do was cut it but I had to go to emergency room to have it taken out!!
  • Tried killing a spider .I,ran off the couch I was standing on. Body slammed the floor breaking on elbow shattering the other had to have plate and screws ,and broke my left ankle for the second time. I'm recovering, from breaking it the 3rd time ,it was a slip on the icy steps that required plate and screws on both sides of ankle.
  • I accidentally sat on my large crochet hook that was hiding in my covers
  • I ran into the side of a moving car when I was 7 years old. Luckily I only ended up with a few scrapes.
  • I was a server & had hot gravy from a pot pie hit me all over my face. My boss called me "Pot Pie Perez" for months afterwards.
  • I had a cough that took forever to go away and it was a hard cough. I coughed so hard that my rib came out of place. It hurt so bad to breathe. I went to the chiropractor and he said it happens more often than people know and after he helped it go back into place he said now it can easily come out of place. So more often than not it's out of place and hurts but not as bad as when it first happened.
  • I literally burned my hand from the inside-out on a dog shock collar while testing the boundary. I’m against using them on dogs, for sure!
  • Fake rose stem up the nose. Wire exposed. Was dancing with my bro for our mom. He had the rose in his mouth and when he turned the stem went up my nose and scraped the inside. I've had random nosebleeds ever sense only from the nostril it went in.
  • My foot fell asleep while I was sitting in bed. When I got up to take care of my dinner plate my ankle went "POP" and I dropped. Worst sprain ever. But I walked (hobbled) the mall the next day with my daughter because I didn't want to miss our time together.
  • I broke the top bone in my foot dropping a jar if spaghetti sauce on it. And then I sprained my hand trying to break apart a stack of frozen hamburger patties
  • My neighbor was watering his lawn so I decided to go water mine. Instead of walking off the porch to get the hose, I tried reaching down to get it. Fell off the porch and landed on my right hand. Thought I might have broke my right thumb because of the pain but actually broke my second little toe on my left foot! Needless to say, the lawn did not get watered that day!
  • Warm up for tennis.... not a game mind you.... backing up for a ball, hit the fence, twist my foot
  • When I was a kid I got pushed down the stairs and was impaled on a screen door handle
  • My mom hates when I tell this story but when I was like 5 or 6 she stepped on my lip. we were going to DQ and she couldn't find her shoes so I was all about helping find them cause ice cream. we figure the dog stole it and hid it behind the couch so my mom stands in front of it to lean over and look behind and doesn't realize I layed down on the floor right behind her to look under the couch. little me shouts "found it!!!" and she goes "where?" and steps back, onto my lip. i cry mom panics throws me in the car gets to a doctor who looks me over and says I'll be fine "just get her some ice cream for the swelling" mom laugh cried at the irony.
  • Just plain ole walking. My husband and I went to Universal Studios for the day on one of his work trips. At the end of the day my foot was a little black and blue. Got back home and had pulled ligaments in my foot! nope didn’t fall at any time. Just walked!
  • Slipped on a rug at work while carrying food. I fell broke my wrist on one and sprained the other and the food went flying!
  • I was 16 and riding my 10 speed down a street when some idiots came by and slapped me in the ass, I flew over the handlebars and had gravel embedded in me from chin to toes. Good times.
  • I broke my pinkie toe running into a vacuum(kirby) trying to get away from my mom
  • When I was in junior high I was in the backseat of a car with friends..the driver, an older mentor of ours decided to go through a car wash. For some reason, I felt the urge to get out of the car so I jumped out of the back seat just as the driver was moving forward…to this day; I’m still not quite sure how, but she drove over my ankle… or as she said ‘you put your ankle under my wheel!’ It instantly blew up and turned black and blue. Miraculously though it was only sprained, no broken bones.
  • Burned my leg with a shovel. I was using the shovel to open and close the lid on a burn barrel. Also, Sprained my knee tripping over a futon mattress.
  • In my first apartment after moving out of my parents, I was making coffee in a percolator coffee pot. It was taking a long time to get done, (or I was impatient) I decided to smell the coffee from the spout to see if it smelled like strong coffee. As I took a big sniff the pot percolated and hot steam went up my nose. I thought I burnt my brain lol
  • I was holding our 80 lb golden doodles leash, he took off after something while I was holding the leash and tipped me over out of a chair onto a cement slab. I had a bruise the size of Texas on my hip for weeks.
  • Threw out my back bending over to pick up a pair of shoes. I was in the changing room of a bridal shop.
  • I was dancing at a club on the stage with a beautiful woman when she went down between my legs and spread them apart and all of a sudden I felt pain and my knee buckled! I tore my meniscus in my knee and hyper extended all the liniments. It required surgery and I couldn’t snowboard for a year because I was dirty dancing with a woman on a stage!
  • I was around 13 and had a paper route ... thought it would be a good idea to tie a sled behind my bike to go to the corner to drag my papers back on the sled behind my bike ... well down the hill I went, rope caught up in the spokes, flipped me off over the handlebars and then the bike landed on my forehead ... blood everywhere ... I had a babysitter because my parents were out of town ... what a mess ... totally needed stitches, never got them

  • I got a stress fracture on my foot using the elliptical at the gym. I had just finished 45 minutes when an old friend, whom I hadn't seen in ages, got on the machine next to me so I stayed and we chatted for another hour while we elliptical-ed.
  • Sneezing
  • Dropped the tow rope. It bounced near me. I tried to grab it. It hit me in the face. Drop the rope? Let it go!
  • I was playing with some neighbor kids once and a girl fell on me and her tooth went through my eyebrow and now I have a scar there
  • Electrocuted stopping someone else from being electrocuted
  • I pinched my sciatic twice doing some stupidly-simple tasks: setting my not-heavy vacuum down on the ground and grinding my dog’s nails with a Dremel. Both times, I was hobbling around like a 90 year old for a week until it finally unpinched itself. I’m fit and athletic too, but I guess the ol’ nerve doesn’t care about how much I bust my ass at FitBody Bootcamp. ‍♀️
  • I was 8 years old and my grandpa was fishing as I was swimming nearby. I thought it would be funny if I dove down as far as I could go so he wouldn't see me on the shore and tug the line to make him think he got a bite. Yeah, when he went to set the hook, it pierced my hand. I came up from the water screaming bloody murder while he removed it. I still have the scar 13 years later.
  • 1) Chasing after my ex husband for a bag of smoke and tripping and breaking my knee. 2. Jumped off a 4 foot ramp into cow shit and landed my foot in a hole in the ground and broke it in 5 places. 3. An ex was trying to hold me down and tickle me and I fractured 2 ribs trying to get away. He was 6'1 and I am 5'4.
  • I fell through a glass shower door while sleep walking. I was also very drunk. Woke up with glass in multiple places on my arm. There was blood through the camper from the bedroom all the way out the door. My friends had to pull chunks of glass out of me the size of a quarter. Even weeks later my brother cut me back open to get a piece of glass out of my arm. We sterilize a knife with Saylor Jerry’s and he sliced me open. I have not had long islands since
  • Ran into a barrel sledding when I was 6 and broke my wrist mom wanted to check my arm and knew it was broken when she turned it and I screamed... Man she loved when I told that story
  • When I was about five or six years old I had this thing for coconuts. Not sure why. Anyhow my parents took me to the public museum. My foot caught a raised sidewalk edge and I slammed face first into the sidewalk. I hit my face so hard it killed my top front baby teeth. I had two black teeth until they fell out. However I always gave people a good laugh when they asked what happened because I always replied that I tripped over a coconut!
  • Blowing out a burning marshmallow
  • Last year I tripped over my own foot outside, fell into a flower bed at a friends house, took 8 MRIs to find out I torn my labrum. I can finally walk after 7 months and 2 surgeries ‍♀️ don’t drink and walk!!

  • I was standing against a wall in roller skates, fell and broke in elbow into 3 pieces. Had to have surgery and had to have my elbow replaced.......
  • My first day at my first job when I was 16 years old was Kentucky Fried Chicken. It was August and back where they prepared the food. It was like 113 degrees. I hadn’t eaten before I went to work, so during my first shift I started feeling faint. I had never fainted before, so thought, “maybe if I walk with this tray of mashed potatoes I’ll feel better.” But while walking I fainted and fell and hit my forehead on the corner of the fryer and fell straight back on the floor. They had to take me to go get stitches in my head (only 2). Not the best first day at my first job.
  • Trying out for cheerleading. Did splits, went all the way to the floor. Broke hip, it was just hanging there, could hear the crack throughout the entire gym.
  • I was camping, and got my finger stuck in the top of a wet wipes plastic container My husband had to cut my finger out loll ALSO, I got the SAME finger stuck in a metal cake frosting tip trying to clean it, and my husband had to get out his needle nose pliers and bend the prongs away
  • I was eating pizza that was seasoned with dry oregano. I felt like I had something stuck in my throat...and it turns out it was a stem of dried oregano. It was huge! Like an inch long! I went to the doctor to get it removed and they asked me if I gargled...of course I did! It wasn't normal oregano! Then the doctor saw it and said it was the first time he's seen anything like it. A nurse held my head still while the doctor tried to remove the oregano from my tonsil and he couldn't get it because it was lodged too deeply. So he cut out as much as he could and then it turns out two years later after it dissolved it left a giant hole and it always infected my tonsil so I had to get it removed

  • I feel like this question was made for me. I fell and broke my arm. Sounds innocent enough, right? Except that it was at my own bachelorette party, 2 weeks before my wedding, and it required an emergency surgery and a huge beautiful brace to wear at my wedding, and not to mention a lot of embarrassment.
  • Slipped on a potato and dislocated my knee.
  • Well, while my husband and I were having adult time, I fell off of the bed and separated my shoulder and fractured my collarbone
