I did sustain an injury on this trip. I fell and cut my chin open pretty good.
The story? Well....I was on a boat. None of this falling on, off or around the dock stuff.
The Italian Melges Race team was in a slip just up the dock from us. I decided to make friends with them (imagine that), one thing lead to another and I got a ride as they ran did a practise sail. Have you seen the Melges boats? Those suckers can fly! Anywho....they didn't speak much English, I don't speak any Italian, throw in a jibe or two and SMACK, split chin, blood, butterfly bandage and broken relations with the Italians. Ciao!
I was touring the flight deck of the USS Yorktown and tripped over the plane catcher cable thing, stumbled about like a drunk sailor trying to catch myself but went down anyway - HARD and cracked my chin wide open.
Let the voting begin. Vote for which story you think best explains my chin injury.
