First I had a violent allergic reaction. Or as I usually think of it, "I've been slimed!"
You can be slimed by beasts and by humans. The human-type sliming is usually worse.
And then I suffered blunt trauma to my frontal cortex. Or as I usually think of it, "I bumped my freaking head!"
Yes, I saw stars and got a little wobbly, and I have a lump on my head. But you know what?! I can remember my name and all my fingers and toes are in fine working order.
So I soldier on like a blessed beast of the field!
