I'm not being metaphoric. I picked up the cord to plug it in and dropped the black box but kept hold of the cord. This caused the plug to swing up at high speed and hit me hard in the mouth. It actually cut my lip. Almost five years of karate, and the only thing that's ever given me a fat lip is my own computer.

This is why I like Freddy in Cotillion so much. He's one of the few romantic heroes who I could imagine getting KO'd by a piece of household equipment. I haven't read Dorothy Dunnett yet, but I get the impression from hearing her hero talked about that this sort of thing would never happen to Lymond.
