When looking in the deep in the refrigerator, and the phone rings, do not raise your head suddenly forgetting where you are. It can be surprising painful when your head whacks the top of the refrigerator’s interior.
The term seeing stars takes on a completely new meaning. Certain expletives come rolling out your mouth uncontrollably. Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing and the dog wants to go out and you cannot find your head. It seems to have rolled off somewhere.
Now, there is an incessant throbbing where your head should be and your eyes are unable to focus. Your knees are weak as you grope your way to a chair.
You take a deep breath; it occurs to you that you should put something cold on that injury. You struggle to stand and hobble back to the refrigerator. Delving into the freezer, you retrieve a bag of frozen veggies and plop in your aching top.
Later, what seemed to be a brilliant idea for dealing with a concussion now comes dripping down your face. As you get a whiff of the melting veggies, you realize sitting on top of your head, is a bag of thawed onions. Removing the dripping bag, wet onion scented hair falls in to your face. Concussions are so much fun.
