A couple nights ago, as my wife and I were in the living room watching TV, she asked me to pass her the remote control. I was sitting in my chair, and she was laying on the couch (facing me). I feebly tossed her the remote, such that its narrow edge ended up striking her upper shin. Despite the pain, we were quickly laughing about it.
And in the laughter, I attempted to excuse my weak throw by explaining, "I didn't want to throw it and have it come near your head... where you could catch it with your hands..."
