A poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

The rental house I've been living in this year has a front yard hose faucet at the corner of the house overgrown by a huge monstera philodendron plant. Turning on the hose means thrashing through the giant leaves.

But my landlady's yard man tidied and pruned the yard last week, so yesterday when I was hosing down a storage bin for the move I was rejoicing in how easy it was to get to the faucet - until BAM! - I poked myself right in the eye with the tip of a pruned back stem.

Ouch. I now have a scrape around my eyelid and blood in my eye. Cute.

Wear a black eye patch, very exotic, dangerous and dashing, and you could start a whole new fashion trend!

You need to keep a pair of safety glasses near the front door.
