I think, after this afternoon, I can honestly say a boiled egg, courtesy of my 17mo.

Still not sure how she managed to get it from the kitchen, but she is obviously developing a good temper as it was thrown in anger!!!

Glad I saw it coming....

A lit, glowing, afire boat flare.  It actually hit me in the shoulder but thats close to my head.

How did I come so close to a lit boat flare?  Well it was about 23 years ago so young and stupid!

Bird poo from startled duck as I was popping over a log into a water jump. Horse landed, duck took flight and shat in fright which unfortunately splattered right across my face and under my helmet. Have you ever tried to wipe duck crap from your face while trying to keep and enthusiastic eventer on track? Seriously not a good look lol

Not my head but I dropped the blender on DD's head when she was 2. It made a small cut in her scalp which bled profusely. I drover her to the doctor's and carried her in to be treated. By this time we were both covered in blood and must have looked like extras from texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Something purple that came out of tree. Some went in my hair and some on my clothes which is how I know it was purple.

A brick. I think I was twelve and opening the shed door to put my bike away when it fell of the roof and hit me. Thankfully I still had my helmet on.

A rock  wink.gif My Dad used it to hammer something into the ground at the beach and threw it behind him and I just happened to be behind him. I was 3.
Stitches were required.

I dropped a tin of dog food against DS's head as I was packing the shopping into the back of his pram. No blood but many tears sad.gif

A soft squishy toy cupcake. I was on the phone to a client at the time and managed to give the coworker who hit me in the head a really flithy look and throw it back without stopping talking  biggrin.gif

A shovel - I was 2 and had snuck up on Daddy to watch him dig the foundations of the new extension - my new bedroom because I was getting a baby brother!
And I once got hit in the face by a lit cigarette butt that flew in the car window - I was in the passenger seat luckily but it bloody hurt and DH got a mighty fright at my shouting! We think the car in front threw it out their window and it came in ours - weird!

My head must be harder than yours - two teachers were playing paddle tennis when I was at school, and the tennis ball whacked me in the head.  No bruises or blood from me, but the tennis ball was split!

A rollerskate, when I was twelve or so.  I was fishing around the bottom of a built-in wardrobe.  The rollerskates were being stored on the shelf above the hanging rail and rolled off the top onto my head.

When my son was seven months, I threw a pack of tampons into the trolley. He was sitting in the baby seat and they got him in the head.  There were no tears, but man I got some filthy looks from other shoppers...

A horse jump at a horse show.  There were no horses nearby at the time  ph34r.gif .  There was an absolute fountain of blood!  

When DD was about 1.5 yo she stood on her baby brother's head (used it as a 'step' to get onto the couch).  DS didn't react at all!

when I was in preschool I managed to scone myself on the slide (metal) as I was simply walking past it (well that's how I remember it - reality may have that I was walking around in some sort of random jumping fashion that my 5 yr loves to do these days). Got a scratch and an egg on my eyebrow

A cricket bat.
Never saw it coming either.
The bell had rung to go back to class and I was walking from the oval up to the school and WHAM. 2 black eyes, massive bruising, trip to hospital. Gp said if it'd been an inch either side I'd be dead.
