The hole in the roof, or, what Benjamin found there…

A lot of pain.

We were starting our second day of breaking our house, and I had just emptied out the wheelbarrow we had on the roof, bringing it back to fill it up again…

I guess I just wasn’t paying attention, for what do I find but a GIANT FREAKING HOLE where the attic vent used to be. I should’ve remembered we’d taken that out yesterday, because when you find a hole, you usually wish you had found it with your eyes, not with both of your legs stuck in it.

So, a bunch of small scrapes on one leg, and a giant circular raspberried scrape on the other… After two days, it doesn’t hurt much anymore, just looks pretty gnarly.

It was pretty cinematic, though… the wheelbarrow fell away from me, clamoring to another part of the roof, falling to its side in utter confusion, with its wheel still slowly turning…
