Every year around this time...

Unlucky: slipping on some wet leaves and nearly falling backward
Lucky: grabbing a low branch and gaining my balance
Unlucky: realizing that it wasn't a branch but a poison ivy vine
Lucky: tossing it to the side before it touched the rest of my arm
Unlucky: having the vine swing back and smack me in the face
Lucky: having the presence to catch the vine in the same hand
Stupid: pulling the vine so as not to have to worry about walking into it again
Comical: how moronic I must have looked tangled up in the damn thing

Effective? Just took a cold shower with some old poison ivy wash...
