  2. This brings to mind memories of times I have knocked myself silly. I almost always wear a ball cap, and when I am really lucky, the brim strikes whatever-it-is and I am ducking before making contact, but it doesn’t always work out that way.

    The most aggravating thing in this line didn’t actually involve a head injury, but an obstruction. I was in the process of taking a stress test – walking on the treadmill. As you know, the more you walk, the higher the treadmill gets. Some short person (obviously) had carefully placed the &@#*^#^!! thing below a fire sprinkler. By the time I started getting up there a ways, I was having to walk more and more bent over.
    I finally told the doctor, “I give up.” “Had enough?” he asked. “I could walk a long time more, but I’ve had enough of walking bent in half.”

  3. I’m 6’3″, and practically scalped myself once, going out the side entrance of a bus on campus. The exit was just above my line of vision, but not above the top of my head, and after a good scraping on the way out, with my head on fire, I somehow managed not to pass out, and melted into a puddle on the sidewalk as I exited. Luckily, I didn’t actually break the skin, but I had a very sore scalp for several weeks.
    I also have a great party trick where I accidentally stand up into light fixtures from tables at dinner parties. (In fact, I’ve banged my head on the light fixture above my own Dining Table many times!) You’d think I’d have to learned to “Look Out Above!”, before standing by now, but somehow, I always manage to forget!
