This past weekend
we my Sweet Hubby and Brother-In Law put together a SpringFree Trampoline in our back yard. There was much laughing, eating, and a little bit of cursing and sweating. Thankfully for once in my Husbands life there was also instruction reading.
This thick manual that accompanies the spring free trampoline clearly warns:
“Treat any loaded rod with caution…”
“Keep your face well away from any loaded rod.”
These two warnings were apparently all kinds of funny, They were also repeated at nauseaum by two grown man children, oh and my sister. Um, but turns out they are warnings to be taken quite seriously! Yep, one heavily loaded “Rod” went off! Popped off if you will, full force in the direction of my brother in law! That loaded “Rod” sprang at him with a mighty force, wacked him on the inside of his left thigh in the most delicate of areas, and ricocheted past his face to ultimately leave him with a sweet purple bruise. It should be noted that this chain reaction also left my
not terribly concerned Hubby doubled over in laughter with tears rolling down his face.
Moral of the story, laugh if you must, giggle like a school boy at every innuendo you can manage, but read the directions, because as they say, it’s all fun and games until somebody loses an eye, or something else equally as important.
