you may notice over the next week or that my posts are lacking in capitalization, and more typos than usual. no, i am not posting from bizarro land. l kind of had a minor acciden last night while loading the trailer for a run to the house in erie. 2 days ago, i cleaned out my storage unit, and transfered it to my uncle so he could pack up some of his belongings for long term storage. as a result, i had a partial load on the trailer and my security deposit, so i figured it would be a good idea to load the truck and fill up the trailer for a run with some of the smaller, odd shaped, and un-needed items from the apartment to the new place. here's where things went bad. i had, unintentionally, loaded the areas around both of the trailer gates to the point that it would have been a serious pita to move things to load the center of the trailer with a couple of heavy items. as i wheeled my 33 gallon, twin cylinder air compressor out of the garage, my daughter and i figured we could lift it up over the rail (2 feet, 8 inches above the ground) onto the deck, and set it in the middle above the axle. all was going well, she had the handle, and cleared the rail with no problem after lifting it up over said rail. i had to shidt my grip to the bottom of the tank to clear the wheels, so i did. all was going well until the wheels cleared the rail, and the weight of the compressor shifted forward. I will start by saying erica and the compressor were both unhurt, her being the higher priority of the 2. i was bable to get my right hand clear without injury, but the left was in the wrong spot at the wrong time. the compressor came down on my ring, middle, and index fingers. my ring and index fingers are just a little sore, and slightly bruised. the middle finger got thr worst of it, as it was in the center of the bottom of the tank. The tank fell onto my fingers, pinned them to the rail, then slid forward to the deck. the epidermal skin layer was peeled off of the dermal layer from the top knucle of the underside (finger pad) all the way up to the tip of the nail, and pretty much crushed in the process. on the bright side, it does not seem to be broken, just with an immense, open blood blister. sorry to the sickos out there that would love to see pics. i am at the apartment in ny, and my camera is in erie at the moment. as a result, i am doing most of my typing with one hand right now, and it is a serious pita given that i usually use both hands to do so (especially when i forget, and try to type with the fingers on the left. d@mn typing class.) just figured i would put this out there before any wtf moments arose, and before the grammar nazis tried to send me out for "re-education". just wanted to give y'all a heads up. on the bright side, i am 1 load away from moved in at the new house. the only bad part to this is that most of what is left is appliances. looks like i'll have to spring for a pizza and a case at both ends for the load and unload of the heavy stuff. catch up with you guys later.
