Ahh Tuesday, time to celebrate the passing of another Monday with our wild and crazy True Story Tuesday carnival!

This week is another camping debacle brought to you courtesy of your cityfied girly-girl who will show you just where her hate-hate relationship with roughing it originated.  From the ancient history books…

 

TUSH KABOB

 

I don’t know.  Was I six?  Seven?

I was old enough to know that I much preferred curling up with a good book in the comfort of a bug-free zone, instead of getting sticky and itchy and trying to lipread by the light of a campfire.

But the folks hauled us off to commune with nature.

We had already spent a mosquito filled night or two in our lovely accommodations:

tent

My dad’s friend (let’s call him Joe) showed up and was being his loud boisterous self at the morning campfire as my mother packed up our things and loaded them into the truck.

You know how those truck shells have two doors – the top and then the truck bed gate?

truck shell

Well, I got my big old 2” biceps to pull open that top door, then leaned against the gate to lower it slowly (it crashed down anyway).

I clambered up and struggled to pull the doors back up behind me.  I was gonna change out of my grimy pj’s before we headed home.

I sat atop all the camping gear and quickly got into clean clothes.  Heading back out, I pushed with all my might to open the top door.

Wouldn’t you know that sucker was spring-loaded?

Ohh yes.  It swung open nearly all the way as I leaned out over the bottom gate.  Then it suddenly swung shut again, throwing me backwards into the bed of the truck.

 

I felt an immediate pain as I landed and knew something wasn’t quite right.

 

Wouldn’t you know it?

My mother had taken great pains to pack everything safely.

I had somehow manage to land on a sharp object that she had wrapped in paper towels and placed in a bag.

 

Yep my friends, I somehow managed to stab my self in the butt.

knife

 

What was a million times worse, is that I immediately jumped up…

 

and the dang knife followed me!

Literally, I was hanging out of the back of the truck, fully dressed, with a big ol camp knife stuck in one cheek.

Poor Joe took one look at me and went into gasping coughing laughing convulsions and alerted the entire National Park of my plight.

And I absolutely am not going to tell you if that left a mark.

(You be quiet Mr. Daddy!)

I know you’ve got some camping adventures of your own!  Hoepfully you haven’t managed to stab yourself, but maybe you’ve discovered a penchant for injuring yourself in stunningly original (and blogworthy) ways?

If so, link it up and we’d love to be around to share some laughs and gasps!  (and of course, comments!)

OK OUCH I won't laugh that sounds painful... and I would almost bet it left a mark.

Leiah said...

Aw man - were you the BUTT of the jokes the rest of the trip? I hope no one took too many CRACKs at making fun of you for that. I mean, that would make for a BUMmer of a vacation. And that Joe - what a jackASS he was.

Ok, I'll quit now because I think that's the END and I don't want to get BEHIND in my commenting.

HeatherOz said...

As usual, the tears are flowing! Thanks for the laughs!

passionofthemom said...

Ugh! What a douchecanoe, laughing at a little girl who was stabbed...I'm sure there's a special place in hell where every chair has a pitchfork...and that's where he'll be! LOL Major OUCH to the story, and I can say I've been the victim of many such unhappy accidents in my day. Klutzy girls, unite!! xD

Double Wide Mom said...

OWW! When you live in a double wide its like your camping every day!

City girl turned Country Girl said...

Seriously....This stuff can only happen to you!! I don't think I could come up with a fraction of the stories that you have!! Thanks for always making me smile! Now that knife in the butt thing...OUCH!!

He & Me + 3 said...

After OUCH those would have been the first words out of my mouth..."That's Gonna Leave a Mark!" LOL
Again...Only you:)

K- floortime lite mama said...

Stabbed in the butt
OMG soooooo funny
Rach its a wonder ( and joy ) you are able to tell your tales after this most hairraising life

Kmama said...

oh my goodness!! Thank goodness you weren't hurt too badly (you weren't were you?). And while you thought the only question might be, "did it leave a mark?", I need to know if you had to get stitches.

LOL at Leiah's comment!!

McCrakensx4 said...

OUCH!! I think I squeezed by butt cheeks together as I read this story...yikes! We used to camp ALL.THE.TIME as I was growing up...one time sticks in my mind though...I was 5 and it was memorial day weekend...my cousins and I were playing at the playground. I was 'trying' to cross the VERY high monkey bars when I slipped and fell crashing to the ground and hitting my elbow along the way...needless to say I broke my elbow. :P And since we were in a podunk town the hospital was of no help...SO...they stabalized it and we headed the long trek home to a better hospital where they so kindly set it OUCH and casted it...no a pretty cast that you see now a days, but a boring ugly white plaster cast. :)

Mr. Daddy said...

and DEAR... it's the cutest little scar on the cutest little tush...*snicker*

Foursons said...

Oh my word. Did you need stitches? I can't even imagine the pain and embarrassment you endured. On the other hand, it is quite funny! Bwahahahahaha

Michelle Pixie said...

Hehehehe We must be related!! Sounds oddly familiar...The part about the tailgate and camping, fortunately for my tushie I've never had a knife stuck into it! :D

*shaking head* Only you, Rachel...only you LOL! Wow, well you know that would scar me for life, too. ;)

TheRixonFive said...

Oh my gosh, I nearly hyperventilated when I read that!

Michelle said...

Oh no! You poor thing. It seems you have a penchant for getting yourself into these things. Maybe living in a bubble wouldn't be so bad! :)

Kelly said...

Sounds like you didn't enjoy that camping trip! OOOCH!

Enjoyed the story!

Beth said...

We lived in tents all summer 2 summers while I was growing up and I'm relatively impressed that I didn't manage to do something similar. We did all wind up in the hospital with Carbon Mono/Di (can't remember which) Oxide poisoning one lovely summer night though. Yikes!

Anyway great story! :)

Kameron said...

That sounds super painful..both bumwise and pride wise!

Together We Save said...

Oh my... that sounds painful... my funny camping story... my family had a great campground we went to often when I was little. Met my husband in college, turns out he was from that same small town, and now I live there today.

Tiffany said...

Oh dear! I am going to post a similar story about my mom one of these days. And Mr. Daddy - you CRACK me up!

Brandi said...

HAHAHAHA! OMGoodness!!! I have a hate-hate relationship with roughing it as well. I've only been twice, but neither time was good. ;)

Emily said...

Don't worry, Rachel, you're not the only one who's stabbed themselves in the fanny...but I'm not crazy enough to make my story a TST! ;)

Kara @ His, Hers and Ours said...

Oh good lawdy!! How crazy random is that? Did dear 'ol mom pack the knives away better the next time?? lol

Poor thing!

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

Oh my! You have had quite an exciting life. I only giggled a little bit, I promise. ;)

Killlashandra said...

Dear, you do seem to be a little accident prone in your youth. ;)

Angie said...

Ouch! Yikes! That sounds like something that would happen to me :)
