This will be my first post of what I hope to many more to come and due to the nature of this blog, and what its contents are going to be, I thought that it would only be fair to start with a story of myself doing something dumb. This way people would know that we are all prone to have it happen to us. No one is immune to doing stupid things.
in May of this year I did something that will forever go down in my life as one of the most stupid things that I have ever done. Let me paint a picture here. I am in my new bedroom, and my then fiancee was out of town. She had placed some items onto the bookcase before she left. Now I had not seen what items she had placed there till this moment. I was on my way out the door to travel to New Jersey so I was kind of in a hurry but there was time for some curiosity to come in. As I walk by the bookcase I notice this bullet looking item unlike anything that I had ever seen before. You can see it here in this lovely illustration. You will notice that there are no markings on this device. Just a button that does nothing when you push it. I pick up the device and asked myself, “what the heck is this thing?” From there is was all bad.
I push the little button over and over, and no resulting anything. I then looked down the little hole in front of it, and I could see some sort of nozzle. it was at that moment that my stupidity soared. Not only was I looking down the barrel of some mystery device, but I then proceeded to hit the trigger while doing so. Upon doing this I was met a blast of what at the time seemed like nothing. However, after about 30 seconds the word nothing was replaced by another word, along with a new sensation. The new word was, MACE and the new sensation was, PAIN, and let me tel you mace hurts! Also it does not come off your face once on there. So 45 minutes later, a 20 min shower in 10 degree water, feeling a lot less smart, and a tingling face accompanied by a pepper spray taste in my mouth I was able to function and go back to life again.
So there you have it. My stupid moment. I am sure that there will be many more to come, but that is enough about me, I am going to talk about other people and their dumb things.
