    I hit myself in the face with my dryer door a few weeks ago. Knocked myself down and gave myself a black eye of epic proportions. Once I determined that I wasn’t dead or bleeding, I started to giggle. This was without epic snow in the reasonable climes of San Francisco. Can’t imagine what I’d do in inclement weather was involved. Glad you’re OK. Also…WEAR A DAMNED COAT YOU LIVE IN THE SNOW! :)

    I hit my head on the car all the time. Usually not so much with the door, but more like I think I’m shorter than I am (which is only 5’3″) and as I go to sit down, I hit my head on the roof of the car. Luckily this only results on a lump on the side of my head, conveniently covered by my blonde hair.

    I am 5′ 1/2″. I hit myself on the car door or with the car door all too often, without the excuse of a snow storm. I blame my proprioceptors……..it’s not my fault….

    Blame the jacket. If it hadn’t been in the car…no bump. Winner and still coat-free!

    While it has been a while since I hit myself in the head with the door, I regularly (at least once a week) slam my hair in the car door somehow.

    I’m just going to add this story to my repertoire of stories of why I have a bruise and a lump on my head when I don’t feel like telling anyone that I fell down when I was drunk :D

    Are we sure that’s not pudding?

    You blacked out, and you have a lump. Get yourself to the doc – you may very well have a concussion (although probably only a mild one I’d guess) – and even the mild ones are nothing to mess around with!

    LOL oh Heather… I’m sorry for laughing at your pain. (Except that was kind of your goal, so… I’m not sorry? So confusing!) I haven’t managed to hit my own head with a car door, but I’m definitely way clumsier when I’m hurrying (and/or tired).

    This would have been me had it not been you. You have to watch out for those doors. Seriously, they jump right out at you. Also, no coat in weather like that makes you hardcore, not blonde.

    Safety tip. Always have coat with you even if you are going to just go from garage to garage. And maybe a blanket, a few wide mouth disposable bottles, a snack and water. Why? You never know when you are going to get caught in a 12 hour traffic jam.

    It was just suppose to be light snow that day I swear, but I ended up sleeping on a bridge, in my car, in Gary — luckily I was going to the windy city so I was wearing my coat and had a hat, gloves, scarf in the car — needing to pee, hungry and very thirsty.

    A wide mouth bottle, some water, maybe a granola bar and a blanket would have come in handy. And 1999 suddenly was the year I got a cell phone.

    You’re lucky. I swerved trying to avoid a spider dangling on its thread and cracked my head on my car door. Next thing I know I have stitches right in the middle of my forehead. That was 6 months ago and I’m STILL growing out the bangs I had to cut to cover them up for my brother’s wedding pictures.

    I blacked my eye under my sink while playing handywoman and replacing my kitchen faucet….in the snow. Yeah, that line makes the story better.
