사고 ~ accident
사고를 당하다 ~ to be in an accident
오늘은 사고를 당했어요. 지금 아파요… ~ today I was involved in an accident. Now it hurts…
Today in judo we did a bit of hockey just for fun as part of warm-up. However, my fun ended pretty abruptly when somebody hit me in the head with a hockey stick so I heard a ringing sound (I always thought that didn’t happen in real life, and it was just something they wrote in books), I suddenly found myself sitting on the floor clutching my left ear, and I was bleeding.
Luckily it could have been a lot worse and the outer ear took the blow. Apart from a slightly crunchy sound when something moves in the ear (which only I can hear, apparently), and the feeling that I probably shouldn’t touch it, I’m fine and there are no signs of internal injuries. Thank God for growing up in a family with medical knowledge!!!
It’s only now several hours later that I think about how an ear is a small price to pay compared to the rest of the face or even internal damage :-S I should even get away from this without a cauliflower-ear because of the way I was hit so I have taken luck to the next dimension it seems.
My guess is that he confused hockey with golf. Sticks on the ground, people!
No more hockey for me!
