Accident Prone  
2001 Personal Account

A waitress I work with came in with a cast on her arm and nasty bruises covering the back of her head and neck. Concerned, we inquired what happened. Without embarrassment she told us she'd fallen while shaving her legs.

"In the bath tub?" we asked.

"No, in the sink in the washroom at a bar."

"Why were you shaving your legs in a bar sink?"

She explained that she was in a wet T-shirt contest trying to impress a particular guy, so she wanted to wear hotpants too, which necessitated a quick shave. But she was drunk and while her leg was braced on the sink, she slipped and fractured her wrist.

We asked her if the bruises on her head and neck were also caused by the shaving mishap.

"No, after I hurt myself in the bathroom, I went backstage to wait for my turn in the competition. When I walked onstage, it was already wet from the other competitors, and I fell off and hit my head on the edge of the stage. But I won the competition!"

We asked if her head hurt, and she replied, "Yeah but it's not my head that I really care about, it's my wrist." Well obviously... © 1994 - 2020
