Short Lists Concerning Recent Events

Distractions Resulting in Injuries:

-Thinking about pending work project, exiting bathroom stall, not opening door fully, banged forearm sharply against small projection on stall frame, resulting in painful seeing stars phenomenon, and resultant purple bruise

-Concentrating on wiping down pantry shelves, standing on a ladder, picked up head and banged it upon a wooden door frame, later and archway, resulting painful, tender crown, intense feelings of stupidity

-Thinking of nothing at all, wiping space heater grate with rag, slice finger open, when rag slips off hand, resulting in not so deep cut, covered with Spiderman(?) bandage and switched to dry work
