Gardening is dangerous. You have poisons, power tools, predators, and pricklers. I'm currently limping and have a scratch on my face. My dad has been working on a small lamp for the front garden. He had me put it in the ground. I wanted to get it in deep so I was putting most of my weight on it when the top part came unscrewed and I fell backward, knee gashed on the rocks, hat off in the rue, shoulder bruised, and who knows how, but my face got scratched too. I was in pain. My dad was laughing, but I was in no way amused. This was not a funny fall, it was a painful one. And I still hurt. And the light doesn't work.
