View Full Version : Had a terrible accident!

April 1st, 2008, 05:16 PM
My young cousin was visiting my house. We were having a quiet family dinner and cousin joey was playing with a toy car. He decided to run the car on my head as I was eating and my hair got really tangled in the car. I had to have my father take the little car apart to avoid cutting. Appartenty, toy cars are very grabbie on hair so be careful.:eek:

Ouch!! I'm glad you're okay!

I second that, Ouch!

oh no! glad you didnn't have to cut it...I will have to member to be careful as my young son has recently started playing with cars....I would cry if I had to cut.

Ouch. I am glad it came out with minimal damage. One of my five year olds was in a drug store with me and when I said "lets go" she had stuck a friction car on her head...:( and pulled it out and ran to me. When we got home she had a small bald spot on the top of her head. It must have hurt but the bald spot was the size of a quarter.

oh wow :( my son loves Hotwheels and I'm glad you've warned us about this.I'm so sorry you had to find out for yourself though :(

Glad you didn't have to cut, that would have been very frustrating.
I think some of the long-hairs on this board must have the BEST 'you-wouldn't-believe-me-if-I-told-you' stories. :o

Holy cow! Thanks for the warning. Your hair is so gorgeous, by the way...

Now that I know everybody came through this relatively unscathed (except for the car), may I laugh?

Certainly. This really did happen to me about oh- 29 years ago. It was at a a house of a friend of the family not a cousin, otherwise it's true. It was also a bit of an april fool. I was tempted to get in on the fun.

Oh dear that is not good!! Thank you so much for mentioning this- I love playing with children and am going to be working with them soon. It would be JUST the type of thing that would happen to me!
