That's what my wife tells me, every time I find a new creative way to injure myself.

If I don’t have any cuts or stitches on my head DW says I have not been working.

Boy, that brought some good memories. I did them all plus.
One memory was not so good. One day 4 or 5 of us neighborhood kids decided it would be fun to climb on the roof of a detached garage. I was the youngest and smallest but I wasn't gonna be left behind and be teased for being chicken. I think we were all in grade school.
A convenient picket fence provided a way up on the roof and the only way down unless someone was brave enough to jump. No one was.
While transitioning from the roof to the top rail of the fence coming down someone (my older sister) decided I was taking too much time so she gave me a little push for encouragement. It took me sometime to make it all the way to the ground as someone had to run get an adult tall enough to lift me off the picket stake which had skewered me in the right armpit.
I got to spend my first overnight in a hospital and I have the scar where the 34 stitches went to this day.
Oh, those were the days.

The street light came on and my little brother was not home. Mom said go find him. He was down the street at the new church they were building.

It seem the little kids found a beach umbrella and were parachuting off of the scaffolding. My brother came down on a 2x4 with a big nail in it. It had punchered his Keds and he couldn't walk. I carried him hame. Dinner was ruined as we made the trip to the emergency room. I was a Boy Scout and knew not to remove the board and nail. Damn he was heavy, as I carried him piggyback.

The Doc got even with him, cut the shoe away, dipped a long Qtip in Iodine and pushed it through the nail hole and out the other side. Then gave him a Tetanus shot, and 2 bandaids. He said watch for infection and have a good night.

I can sometimes still him hollering!

He survived and went on to be a decorated Army Chopper/Fixed Wing Pilot and Vietnam/Iraq Vet.
He retired as a CWO5 with 34 years service.

There were definitely some hiccups in the “good” old days but you learned from them, usually you did no make the same mistake twice.
