Crystal Clear


The other day, the stud hubs came home from work, (normal), walked through the door, (normal), saw me peeking out from the bedroom, (sometimes normal), sitting with one leg stretched towards the light, (occasionally normal), with a pair of tweezers, (maybe normal), and blood all over my foot, (uhhhhh).

A few days earlier I had knocked over my glass of iced tea. Broken glass and sticky sugary liquid all over the wood floor.
I'm 23 years old and I need a plastic sippy cup.

Fast forward to me and my foot, somehow managing to find the last shard of glass that made it's magical pilgrimage to the Land of Right-Before-Our-Bedroom-Door.

I had flashbacks of my Dad helping me pull out things I had stepped on throughout my life: a tack, itchy bark dust, splinters of a broken lightbulb, remnants of what once had been a picture frame...

Now it's Daniel's turn. He has his hands full being married to me.

Nothing better than a man you love, kissing your boo-boos and handing you a Transformers Band-Aid.

Jennifer said...

Poor you! Aww. That sounds like somthing I would do. I always drop EVERYTHING. I hope it gets better soon!

aww dont worry you are not alone. i spill ALL the time. and lose things. and forget things.. no good :) xoxo jcd :: cornflake dreams

Stephanie said...

sounds like you got a good man there! :)

caz said...

I absolutely need a sippy cup... not coz I drop things.. but I just don't seem able to drink from a glass without somehow dribbling on myself... *how embarassment!* Usually when we are out, I will ask for a straw, to avoid any unsightly spillage!

Hmmm... why don't they make adult sippy cups?? The closest thing is like a travel cup/mug.. (so not as fun!)

Hope your foot gets better soon..
Transformers Band Aids - FTW! (almost worth getting a boo boo for.. hehe..)

At least your spillage was on wooden floor and not carpet.. sugary liquid on carpet = BADness..

Chelsy said...

ughhhh... i literally got queezy reading this post...it's not so much the blood, i just don't handle pain well! *shivers* and the thought of little shards of anything in your foot makes me cringe!

{...weirdly though, I'd be the first one to grab tweasers and take glass out of my hubby's foot.lol}

Rissy said...

oh man I'd love a good transformers band-aid!

I remember crying like you would not believe every time someone removed a splinter for me. I may have been what some of us would refer to as "dramatic" ; )

haha this sounds like me. I am unforgivably clumsy! I hope your foot is okay!

kira said...

Lame! I hope you got all of the glass out!

When I was a kid there was one decent sized earthquake in Oregon. I got out of bed to figure out what had just happened and walked into the kitchen barefoot. My parents had lined the top of all of the cabinets with these cool looking glass bottles and somehow I didn't notice that a bunch had fallen and there was glass all over the floor. Bad morning for me.

melissa said...

Awww, this is so sweet =) I love cool bandaids like that! I have My Little Pony ones! x

Megan said...

oh that is slightly traumatic. and funny. but sometimes i think innapropriate things are funny.

Anna said...

So funny. Mike and I have star wars band-aids. =)

Tang said...

Ouch. But sweet story. :)

Morgan said...

band-aids are always better with characters on them! even if you are 21 (or 23) years old!!!

Lesley said...

haha those are so awesome.

kids bandaids always make everything feel better. boys too, i guess... ;)

My Beautiful Life said...

Aww. That is so sweet. You cracked me up with the sippy cup. Back in my "work days" I ruined a keyboard, and the I.T. guys who were so incredibly funny, and kind told me " you really should look into getting a sippy cup".

Fast forward a few years. New Mac, New Keyboard. Ruined another keyboard. These days hubs has a keyboard cover on so I won't spill anything. :)

P.S. Transformers? Nice. Here it is Handy Manny (disney cartoon).

Kandice said...

i love your blog and that you need a plastic sippy cup ;)

<3, kandice

Tatiana said...

Sweet husbands are the best! That's totally something I would do though, too. Oh, and kids bandaids are can totally make things better.

Sarah said...

I'm sorry about your boo-boo, but this story was hilarious!

aimee said...

Awww so sweet. Love the cute bandaids. I have the hello kitty bandaids and the peanuts bandaids for everybody else since I'm the only female in the house. :)

TB said...

After seeing this post this morning, I went to get Transformers band-aids for The Kid, but they didn't have any! Spiderman it was.

Maybe you should replace all the glass in your house with plastic. After the glass pizza incident and now this, you're scaring me!

Jessica said...

Cutest story ever :)
Hope your foots alright!

 Curly J said...

Aww cute!! I remember doing something similar for my hubby last summer after he decided to play volleyball with friends on a half grass/half dirt field.. not such a good idea if you're not wanting massive size blisters!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!! :)

Mikaela said...

how sad! Feel better! My husb and I like kiddy band-aids too, I have hello kitty and he has spiderman. :)

Sarah said...

Oh my gosh! One time I was at my neighbor's house and we were playing on her slip-n-slide and when we were done I wrapped my towel around my legs and tied it at my waist. Then I was walking across their wooden deck but since my towel wrapped all the way down my legs I could pick my feet up so they just scooted along the surface of the deck. (Enter 34 splinters in one foot and 16 in the other). Yep, the rest of the day was spent laying on my parents big bed while my dad dissected my foot! I feel your pain!

Elizabeth said...

Aww - I'm sorry about your foot. How sweet of your hubby to help - hope you're feeling better.

Thanks for checking out my blog Life with Elizabeth and for your sweet comment. :)

Jasmine said...

i love this story! not because you hurt your foot (i'm so sorry about THAT part) but the story itself reminds me of what happens in my house! and there really is nothing better than him coming home and fixing what's gone wrong... and transformer band-aids are so frequently used in my house!! =)

Alexis Kaye said...

Ugh that gave me chills just reading it! I hope your foot is okay! By the way, I totally need a plastic sippy too. Not so much for the dropping, but the spilling. I ahve a hole in my lip.

Charlotte said...

Brissa said...

and that's why love is amazing.

Cassie Nafziger said...

This is uber cute! Love this post...I'm sorry you stepped on glass, I hate when that happens! Love your band-aids--I saw some my little pony baind-aids the other day and I totally wanted them but I thought it may lead to a band-aid collection that I would be soooo embarrased of. Well, maybe not. I use band-aids all the time when shoes rub funny, lol. Hope your footsie is feeling much better!

Megan said...

Oh my gosh, poor Bon Bon!! I would have also been crying.

I love this new design. It is absolutely adorable!!

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

there's no one who tells a story like you, i laugh until pain occurs! this gets filed under the rad title of "more than meets the eye"! haha love it lady.

and thanks for your comments, do they ever make my day a better one. i'm thinking "the donut address" will need it's very own ftp soon ; )

keep that sippy cup close by at all times, we don't want anymore bleed outs doll. ♥

Michelle (michabella) said...

I bet that Transformers band-aid made EVERYTHING better, right??

I am 25 and have Hello Kitty Band-aids.

I heart you very much. <3
