In the six weeks that I was made to get a tetanus booster shot, I have:
- cut a vein on my left hand (one day after getting the shot) while trying to get something off a glass shelf at the pharmacy;
- given myself a four-inch long cut on my right forearm merely by holding a plastic folder;
- burnt myself at least twice while cooking;
- nipped my finger while cutting vegetables;
- scraped my shoulder while scaling a freaking wall;
- banged my right hand against hard wood;
- stubbed my toe on a weekly basis; and
- given myself sundry paper cuts, all at least half an inch long.
Those last two, admittedly, are no uncommon incidents in my life. But the rest of it? The eleven years between my last tetanus booster shot and this one were not this eventful in such a compact period of time.
