Note to self from Phlegmmy

While I appreciate that it takes a ruggedly heterosexual man to wear Hello Kitty bandaids when nothing else is available, must get manly bandaids for the odd handyman mishaps that will occur.

Target sells some muy macho camo bandages, tho I have to admit they don't stick as well as others.

What a cruel blow to your masculinity.

I'll send you a box of our Daffy Duck bandages instead.

I've got a whole box of bacon Bandaids, but you ain't gettin' those.

Beats papertowels and duct tape.

With age, those are going to grow into proper Scottish eyebrows!

("With age" is defined as the first time your barber asks if you want your eyebrows trimmed and ears shaved.)

Grayson said...

Say, Ambulance Driver?
Where the heck did you find Daffy Duck bandages, anyway?

PoppaJ: Under most circumstances, I would point out that nothing beats duct tape. The main reason we don't use it for first aid purposes is that it tends to REALLY REALLY HURT when it is finally removed. Not to mention the possibility of making wounds get considerably larger (a lesson I learned the hard way, in my misspent youth).
And finally...(with tounge in cheek)...

Dagnabit, Lawdog, didn't anybody tell you that if you end up needing to head - butt an unruly critter, your tactics need some work? Remember, work SMARTER, not harder.
Come to think of it, it's probably your first aid kit that needs improvement, not your tactics.
Anyhoo, take it easy for a while, allright?

Cheers.

I'm still laughing at all the comments (But the sponge bob bandaid is COOL.

suz said...

SpongeBob is definitely macho enough to compensate for Hello Kitty. I think you've got it "covered."

ZerCool said...

I've always used Sesame Street band-aids. Good for a laugh from most anyone.

Dear Lawdog-san,

Thank you for your suggestion that we market a new Hello Lawdoggie line of merchandise. We hope to begin test-marketing soon.

Sincerely, Sanrio Corp.

I just hope there's a really, really good story to make up for your loss of masculine dignity. As in, better than "she distracted me and I forgot that we'd put scaffolding just inside the doorway."

Well, at least it'll be certain that it wasn't an on-the-job injury.

Glad you're okay.

Somewhere i heard of some crime scene bandaids .. Wonder where they went ?

TOTWTYTR said...

We used to have Disney band aids, but cudget buts have made us go generic low bid ones. Too bad, you'd look great with a Tinkerbell on your noggin'.

So, did your co-workers get to see the band-aids?

These ones may gain the seal of approval from Herself:

At least it wasn't a maxipad... :-)

@ Old NFO, Your comment just gave me the biggest laugh of today :)

I can send you some of the electric blue, water proof, rip the hair from your flesh ones we keep in the kitchen at work.

Those bastards don't come loose until the skin beneath does.

A three bandaid cut would have me getting a gauze 4"x4" & some tape out of the boo-boo section of my first aid kit.

On the other paw, the Hello Kitty & Spongebob bandaids do go well with Lawdog's internet persona. I mean if any Texan lawman were to turn up with embarrassingly cute plasters stuck over a cut, it would be our gracious host.

Proper sticking plasters for the LawDog.

Ladybug Crossing said...

LOL! I think my Mr. had a head injury caused by a cork screw in the exact same place as your boo boo. I didn't have bandaids when he had his mishap... He got to wear gauze held on with duct tape. Oh yes -- but that is lovely! Especially with dinner guests... I'm sure he would have preferred Hello Kitty!

TBeck said...

Duct tape works just fine.

Real Men don't care what their Band-Aids look like. When my little girl, now 37, was seven or eight she gave me a box of Hello Kitty Band-Aids for Christmas. I've bought those for household and work site 1st Aid Kits since, and wouldn't dream of changing. One little note, I've only ever gotten approving chuckles when going about adorned with HK sticking plasters.

Let me guess, Chris was aiming for your nose, but the fish-hook landed on your forehead?

On morning I shot a 3" ringshank nail throught the pinky fingertip...construction Firstaid was applied (paper towel wrap & duck tape). Over lunch, Daughter was making a fuss to determine if further care was needed, loyal Son-in-Law advised "We don't need no Bandaid...We already got a MANdaid."
AS M.P. says, "Tis but a flesh wound."
