Hoses are dangerous
I totally forgot about this until I just tried to cross my legs and hit a bruise. Yesterday I was watering the plants on the deck. I finished and walked down the stairs pulling the rubber hose behind me. I looked back and realized that I had missed the Chilean Guava on the other side. I was halfway down the stairs, I turned and took a step up one step, became tangled in the rubber hose. I am a great lover of slapstick. Usually it's at someone else's expense unfortunately, but this one was all me. It happened in slow motion. I stumbled, I banged my leg, tried to move and hit my knee. I twisted further which caused me to slip again and bash my leg a third time. Yup. Wish I had it on video.
