WTF Wednesday, I crushed it, literally

Oh man did I have a great post planned…but typing is hard yo.  Well, not typically but for now.

Last night MacGyver and I were trying to move a  heavy piece of furniture and after we got it on the dolly he pulled while I pushed.  We had to go across the lawn and I felt the furniture shift so I put my hand down to catch it.  Because you know, it only weighs 3 or 400 pounds.

That would be me in the hospital because I crushed it, literally, as in my finger.

I have a broken finger that was technically crushed and an open fracture which has been sutured and luckily, by the grace of God, I still have a finger tip but no nail and it may never grow back.  I have to see an orthopedic surgeon in a few days to find out and see about the real damage.  It’s pretty painful though, I can tell you that.

MacGyver and I took a picture of the actual injury before they sutured it and splinted it, you know because we have the curiosity of 12 year old boys.  I’m not posting it here but for the record, it was hella gross.  And we were both pretty impressed.

WTF it’s Wednesday and typing is a skill I no longer have right now but I’m still crushin it. 😉

WTF Wednesday, it could only happen to me.

Today I finally did it.  Despite all of the opportunities that I’ve had over the years today was the first time that I actually did it and believe me it was completely unintentional.

For the past few days I’ve gone out for a run early in the morning.  Yesterday I was ecstatic that I was able to complete 5 full miles without stopping once.  The key for me is running so slow my brain feels like I’m walking because it is stupid hot, even at 6:30 in the morning.

Anyway, I decided to try and duplicate my efforts from yesterday and run another 5 this morning.  So, I headed out around 7AM, a little later than usual, and that is why I ran into one of my neighbors.  He showed me a red spot on his arm and told me that it came from a poisonous caterpillar.  He said when he went for a walk yesterday it fell out of a tree and hit his arm and it stung him and he told me to be careful.

I wasn’t too worried about poisonous caterpillars to be honest, I mean, I’ve never really seen them at the park and even if they are there, I don’t typically run under trees so I didn’t really give it a second though.

I ran 4 miles at a pretty slow pace and it seemed to go by fairly easily but at 4.2 miles I decided to walk a bit.  And that’s when it happened.  Something dropped from the sky and landed right in my shirt.  It went into my sports bra and took up residence right between my sisters.  Yep right there.


I had no idea what it was but I could feel it squirming and all I could think about was poisonous caterpillars so I yanked my shirt up but I couldn’t get to it.  The whole thing probably lasted about 3 seconds but it seemed like it took forever as I yanked my sports bra up and grabbed the squirming creature.  The ‘creature’ turned out to be a lizard.  A freaking lizard.

And I flashed at least 3 people.

WTF, it’s Wednesday, a lizard jumped in my shirt before 8AM and I didn’t die, bring it!

The weirdest thing I’ve ever seen in a front yard.

Good Morning.  This post may be a little short because it’s PRIME DAY.  For those of you who live under a rock, Prime Day is an annual event exclusive to Amazon Prime members when we can shop for 36 hours and score some awesome deals.

Prime Day

Okay, the deals aren’t always that great but who doesn’t love a good garage sale, am I right?

On Saturday MacGyver and I went to a plethora of garage sales starting at 9AM and we didn’t finish until after 3PM.  We drove up to Pasco county because both of us are hoping that one of these days we’ll end up smack dab in the middle of a Live PD action shot but so far, nothing.

Anyhow, we managed to get some good things.  Most importantly Hank no longer looks like this:

I seem to have misplaced my back shoes….on purpose.

He now has 4 Duggs instead of 2, well, until he loses them again.  Maybe I should get him another pair today, I mean it is Amazon Prime day after all.

Sorry, I digress, back to the weekend.  We noticed while driving around this weekend that our GPS in the car was acting a little off.  At one point I couldn’t figure out what road I was on and when I glanced down to see, this was the screen,

GPS Fail

So yeah, that was weird.  Thank God we were on a road.

But it wasn’t the weirdest thing that happened.  No, I have saved the best for last.  This is by far the weirdest thing I have seen in years.  No, I am not kidding, YEARS.  Probably the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen.

As MacGyver and I were driving around he looked over and yelled out for me to hurry and look.  Here is what he saw,

At first I didn’t see it so I pulled over and rolled down the window and took a much closer look.

Casket in yard

I mean, who puts a casket in their front yard?  Is it decorative?  Is someone in it?  Could you not afford the burial plot?  Are you planning for your own funeral?  Is it a future garden?  Do you work in a funeral home?  Did you bring work home with you?  What the hell?  And why?

So many questions?  It was definitely a highlight of our weekend and honestly, we are still trying to figure it out.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen in someone’s front yard?
