    I once gave myself a black eye.

    And it was by accident.

    I was at work.

    I was working at a hospital.

    In the Emergency Room.

    And I gave myself a black eye ... while answering the phone.

    Really.

    I poured a really nice whisky, put the bottle away, got distracted, turned back straight into the still-open cupboard door, swore and knocked the glass of the work surface.

    I didn't mind so much headbutting the cupboard or even clearing up the broken glass but... the whisky.. wasted, gone :(

    I nearly cut off my finger with a knife, a tin can, a pair of siccors and I think that is all for my finger, I burned a smilie on the back of my hand, put a chisel into my right hand, and had a nail go into one of my eyebrows (can never remember which one)

    These were all by accidents btw

    Depends, it varies, it can taste anything like a kick in the face, or a pleasant kick in the face.....


    Oh, and I have two car ones, I drove into a truck on purpose, and I nearly got killed by plowing into a tree, whilst going 120km/h (accident, transmission fluid sprayed onto the tyres) saved by a star picket.

    If it was Jameson's I would have deliberately poured it on the floor (or dowm the sink) :p

    No this was a 16yr old Balblair single malt whisky (Scottish) :) *



    * I don't know why I smiled there... it's so painful a memory :(

    Depends on whether it's a single malt or a blend and in what sort of barrel it's been aged in ~ they can have subtle fruity, vanilla, toffee, treacle flavours or as Kaine says they can just have an almighty kick that burns it's way through your body... bliss :D

    .. an older story

    I was driving along, rain was falling and my better half (Aeon, who used to be active on tff) said "keep your distance". I turned around to basically say "I know what I'm doing", turned back, traffic had stopped and I slammed in the back of them. Of course it wasn't my fault *looks innocent*

    And that is why, whenever a woman talks in a car, she should be ignored at all costs. >.>

    I'll have to call it 50/50 ~ the distance was fine but I shouldn't have let myself be distracted.

    The upside was that I got a better company car :)

    I am a sissy girl when it comes to drinking whiskey.

    I used to ruin it by drinking it with coke ... until I tried Jameson.

    But after visiting the Jameson distillery while in Dublin -- sorry Elladan, I like the stuff ;) --
    I discovered Paddy is perfect for wimps like me.

    Only problem I have, is that no one seems to sell Paddy in the USA.
