An Acrobat I am not for sure! Working on my roof replacing a few shingles that came off during a heavy wind storm over the winter and did something stupid! Ya see ... we have a trampoline the boys use everyday and it is set up quite close to the back of the house. So, to make a short fall, long. My 13 year old step son who is quite versed at the trampoline decides he wants to jump off the lowest point of the back of the house (which is around six feet) and onto the trampoline. He tries it once and succeeds. He tries it several more times with no problem and it starts to look easier to me every time he does. So, guess what? I decided to try it thinking, Hey this can't be all that bad, right? WRONG! Off I jump feet first into the center of the trampoline and wham!, my whole body compresses like no bodies business and I am in total pain! Sill am even after a night in the emergency room and back home with tons of pain medication and a neck brace. Talk about STUPID!
Well, anyway I didn't break anything nor rupture any discs in my spine. However, the ego has suffered quite a bit especially having my wife and thirteen year old witness the whole freaking accident!
Now, I'm going to take a pain pill and lay down for a year or two. Think about this crazy ace while your woiking on your next piece. When I get around to it my next will be titled, "Disaster on Mosside terrace!"
Ouch! That hoit!
