what's the most painful, yet MINOR injury you've ever experienced? i'd say mine was running full speed into an antique (translation: large, heavy, wooden) radio and breaking my toe. now, i have nothing to compare that to given that i've never broken anything but that one toe, but from what i've heard from folks who've not only broken toes, but larger bones as well... the toe is one of the more painful things to break. that said, i don't wish to find out whether or not that is actually true. :er: however, what i just did about 10 minutes ago was pretty damn bad. and worst of all, it's my own fault. :???: i was getting out of the bathtub and i went into my room to put some socks on. the cord on my hair dryer was hanging down onto the floor in the bathroom and it was lying there in such a way that the prongs on it were sticking up. so when i walked back into the bathroom, i stepped on it. can i just take this moment to say OOOOOOOOOOOOOUCH!! it didn't even break the skin and it's just gonna be a bruise, which is no biggie, but MAN did that hurt!
