Next time turn the mower on and boom uyou are free, just kidding.
Glad you are alright, stuff happens. At least you were smart enough to get yourself out. Another thing you could try is chewing off your leg, just an idea.
How funny! I can only imagine!

Marlin's wife - "Uhm... honey? What are you doing?!"
Marlin - "... thinking outside the box?"
1. I'm glad you're allright.
2. This story is hilarious mostly because I think we've all been in a situation where we weren't hurt... but could be very embarrassed when help comes if we didn't get out of it ourselves.
I had a similar experience (think the mother from "A Christmas Story" saying "you'll shoot your eye out"). I had been wanting to clear out the attic for a while and been harping on my husband to help for months. Between work and other projects he had going on he just hadn't found time to help yet. I kept threatening that I would do it by myself and he kept saying, "Don't do it by yourself, you'll put your foot through the ceiling."
Pffgghht... I have cat-like reflexes! I won't slip and put a hole through the ceiling!
So... long story short, one wrong step and bam! We now have a hole in our living room ceiling. Ohgreat. To make matters worse, I can't get the leverage to get my leg out. An hour later, I'm in desperate need of a glass of water and a restroom break (not necessarily in that order) when my husband comes home early from work (thank goodness!).
First thing he says, "What happened?!"
Oh. Gee. Take a wild guess. I thought I heard Santa but it was just a prankster raccoon.
My response, "I shot my eye out."
