I have scared people so many different times,
Once down in St. Croix when a house was being remodeled and I was in charge of it.
The workers were taking out these large built in shelves, they were each about 10 feet across.
They were doing it with a sledge hammer, I wanted to show them as a "girl" I could take one of the shelves out with a ONE hit of it.
So I took the sledge hammer, put it behind me and with both my hands and all my might, I brought the hammer up to the shelve to hit it from
Well................. I completely missed the shelve and brought the sledge hammer into my forehead instead.
OMG - the look on everyone's faces including the owner of the house, was priceless, besides the blood draining from their faces. I dropped the
hammer and held my head, after lots of screaming from everyone else coming up to me, and some talking about calling an ambulance, I began to laugh.
I still have the dent in my head (which can be felt) from that hit.
The other time was when I was hit by a car going 30 miles an hour as I was walking.
Happened in front of all my business associates in Atlanta.... the ambulance driver told them they would never see me again.
Let's put it this way.... I walked out of the hospital with not a single broken bone or problem, but I had totalled a cadillac with my body and had
flown in front of it about 30 feet.
So, there have been other episodes too............. but those two are the ones that scared people the most, since people normally drop dead from those
One thing is, members of my family has forbidden me from buying a chain saw or even using one. LOL
