About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

Oops upside your head

pay attention now
say oops upside your head say oops upside your head
say oops upside your head say oops upside your head
now I want all you gappers, and finger snappers
you toe tappers and you love rappers

I want you all to
say oops upside your head say oops upside your head


2 nights ago, just before going to bed, I went to pee.

Of course being a man, I never turn on the lights and walk to the loo in the dark, which is fine. And the light from outside the house is bright enough as well so I don't miss.

However, on the way back to bed, the room is totally dark because we have blackout curtains.

But hey, I can walk back, I know where the bed is, right?

Obviously I do, but there is Al E's bed next to mine on the floor. So, I hit his basket and trip.

Being tall, I did not fall on him and he was not injured or anything. No oops upside his head.

But my head came landing on the corner of the bedside table before my hand stopped the rest of the fall.

The impact was quite hard and I could feel the concussion and something more, so, I hold my forehead and press the pain. When I pull my hand away, I see some red streaks on my palm.

So, in my daze and dizziness and a little concussion, I go to the bathroom and see a small cut.

In my mind I think, oh thank God, just a small cut. The dizziness and banging on the head feels worse, so I went off to bed again.

This time wifey has come in because of the loud bang earlier and notices and immediately puts a plaster on it.

Next day, for work, I obviously remove the plaster. Having a plaster on the forehead just would attract too many question and I would have to repeat the story a hundred times over.

But removing the plaster, I noticed a mark on the forehead.

This did attract a few questions, but not as many and I usually joked that it was my horribly failed attempt to be like Harry Porter.

Oh well, no Harry Porter am I, just some oops upside my head and if I press it, it still hurts a little bit but it will heal and unfortunately I have no wizard powers. SIGH!!

Take care and be well.

Hey Nilesh,
It might be best to check with doctor, any hard hit on the head is best to get checked out to make sure no internal injury, especially since you you mentione concussion. Hope you are feeling better and do get it checked.

Take care,
Sanjay

ICE IT Nils, ice it. And if you start forgetting simple stuff like your name, or how to turn the tv on, or who Al E is, well, then you must to do like friend Sanjay says and go off to hospital for a ct scan and then ....weeellll, lets not get into the and thens. Most of them never come true. Ask Sarah to be more vigilent incase u start forgetting. Hey Sarah, it's me doing a Shout-out to you. Please let me know if Nils looks at you and asks, ''who the ruddy devil are u?'' and quickly whisk him off to hospital. and i suggest you move the night table. :-)
