Side Stories, the mishaps of Jennifer at the holidays

by JenniferJangles December 03, 2008

So if you pay any attention to my blog you have probably figured out I love the Holidays. I get pretty excited about stuff, sometimes too excited. So over the years I have had some pretty funny and not so funny stuff happen. I thought I would share some of these stories with you….

When I was about 10, I was getting Christmas punch out of peculator and pushed so hard on the handle it tipped over and burnt my hand. I had to have it medicated and wrapped for a few days after that.

The following year, at our Christmas ever dinner, I stuck a fondue fork straight out of the hot oil into my mouth; I have blisters for a week after that. That same Christmas our friends were about to come down for a party. Our artificial tree that had seen better days, had tons of presents under it, my mom asked me to pull out the presents for the party. I did but I guess I pulled to hard, because the tree went crashing over onto the coffee table. The crash broke almost all of my great grandma’s antique glass ornaments. Oops!

I did have a few years free of mishaps but when I was in high school, it was the last day of school before Christmas break. It was snowing really hard and the phone rang at 6:00 am, it was my friend calling to tell me school had been cancelled. I not being a morning person went running for the phone half asleep; I caught my foot on the floor heater ad broke my toe. Good thing I got out of school that day.

So the most recent mishap, which was my most costly, was a few years ago. My boys were little and we were on or way out to drive around and look at Holiday lights. I got really excited about it like I always do and backed my van into my husband’s car. His card was dented in and my bumper was hanging off. Since that Christmas, I really try to not get so worked up. But it’s kind of the standing joke now, what will Jennifer do this Christmas to hurt herself.
