I hit my head twice!

In Countdown on August 14, 2011 by Edelweiss Tagged: ,

I started to track the times I’ve hit my head (hard!) here in an effort to document what I’m sure will be a future medical condition. Then I magically stopped hitting my head.

Until now….

We have a towel hanger inside our shower. I’m not sure why, since it gets soaked every time we take a shower. But it likes to assault the top of my head when I bend down and thenĀ  the side of my head when I straighten up.

I haven’t read Love Story and I saw the movie when I was too young to understand it. Therefore I only know this quote out of context, but it has always driven me crazy.

As a stubborn little lady, sometimes I think my greatest acts of love to Walrus are being humble enough to acknowledge I was wrong and apologize for it (on those rare moments I’m wrong!).

I’ve just decided to repurpose the quote into a context that makes sense to me and can help rewrite the narrative of our gender.
