Anyhow, I shared the "incident" on my Facebook page yesterday and it got me to thinking...my demise could make for some interesting autopsy reports and obituaries, right? So, at the risk of scaring some people away from this adventurous life, I'm going to have some fun sharing some of the possible scenarios. For starters, yesterday:
We had a wind alert- VERY windy. I was carrying a couple flakes of hay to the goat pen when I heard a hen squawking in an extremely excited tone. I mean this girl was happy. She had found an old length of that old orange baling twine that likes to hide around our little place. As she raced over to show it to me (long trail of twine snaking along behind AND a crowd of chickens coming to see what the fuss was about) the wind caught some loose hay in my arms and blew it right into my line of sight (luckily I was wearing glasses!) So I tripped over the dancing chicken and got the twine wrapped around my boot. I managed to break my fall by dropping the hay and blindly grasping the goat pen for support. But it could have been much worse. This would have been
AUTOPSY REPORT #1:
Death resulting from wind blown hay blinding subject to loose baling twine and dancing chicken underfoot.
