The Accident Book Continueth …

The Accident Book Continueth …


This post relates to that hideous journal of  unmitigated disaster: THE ACCIDENT BOOK. You will no doubt remember that it concerns the many mishaps of my highly accident-prone friend and sometimes employee, Watkins. These were recorded by his former employer Lord Northbunker on his country estate in Dorset where he worked as an assistant Groundsman.

I stopped at Extract #13 which seemed gruesomely appropriate at the time. I knew I had to stop as it was becoming almost unbearable to relate.

Anyway, dear friends – after several months of intensive therapy with my good friend and mentor Doctor Eva Zuckerbauer at her mountain retreat in Switzerland – I now feel able to resume. And it is in this respect that I do have a small request to ask of you regarding  said continuance thereof.

So, here’s the thing. The heart of the matter. I would absolutely love it if you were to try and  guess one of the mishaps not  yet  listed. And, through the very miracle that is the comments box, I will tell you if you are correct. I have a sneaky feeling that you will all be bang on he money whatever you suggest. Hey … feel free to ask your friends to join in as well. You could steamroller them into it. Steamroller – now there’s a thought.

Just to refresh your memory, here is a list of just a few accidents thus far related to you …

  • Trampoline
  • Kite flying
  • Electric shock
  • Fireworks
  • Lawn mower
  • Rottweiler
  • Parachute

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Nobody called Watkins was hurt during the writing of this post. God knows I tried!

LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU.

  1. Poor Watkins. Has he recovered from falling off the cliff or diving into the empty swimming pool? Goodness, he really is accident prone. Stay away from him is my advice.

    • Another staggering coincidence. He did indeed survive plunging into an empty swimming pool. As for the cliff incident … it was touch and go for awhile. A post will appear about this in the fullness of time. Thank you for dropping by and for your amazing guesses.

  2. This is so tempting! How about: fatally stabbed by a psychopath in LA on a Tuesday?

    • Oh this is absolutely uncanny. OMG!! How did you know that!!
      Fortunately … it wasn’t actually fatal. Watkins made a full recovery. He laughs about it now. 😂
      Thank you so much for taking part. A post about his LA experience will appear in the fullness of this me. 🌹🆗

  3. Gosh, this is difficult since I always feel with Watkins and I am so sorry for what he already went through!!

  4. Hypothermia? That time he took little Thomas and Edwina out on a spring evening’s badger watch?

    • Wow. This is really beginning to freak me out. Yet another totally accurate guess. 😁🎺🎺 Are you people out there psychic or something! Thank you for your uncanny guess.
      Chris.
