    This is almost too embarrassing to tell, but I just have to share. Today, I decided to put up a chicken wire partition in my coop, so I can eventually add in some new girls, and keep them separated for awhile. The coop has two doors. I opened one door, went inside to assess the situation and decided exactly how I was going to attach the wire.

    I got busy nailing up the wire--stood back and admired my work, gathered up my tools and thought, "Uh, oh!" I HAD SEALED MYSELF IN THE SIDE WITH THE LOCKED DOOR!!! [​IMG]

    It posed an interesting predicament to say the least. I didn't want to take down my labor intensive partition, so I put on my thinking cap (yeah, I forgot to put it on when I started). I ripped off the lid to the nail carton, slipped it through the crack between the door and the doorjam, and was able to lift the hook of the lock from inside!

    Yep, it was just another day in Dorkville........[​IMG]

    I find myself in situations like that from time to time...and inevitably that is when the phone rings or your folks show up at the front door and have to help you out, and of course they question you on how you get through life on your own. lol

    That was a good one Lynn! Had it been me, I would probably be locked in, have no way to unlock, and be lamenting the great big cup of coffee I drank before I entered dorkdom.
