My husband says I have a special talent for hurting myself. 

I’m always hitting my knees on the bottoms of tables, running into walls, and finding mysterious bruises all over my body. Yesterday I even dropped a kitchen knife on my foot! (Thankfully it landed handle-side down.) 

I take some solace in the fact that I’m surely not the only one to hurt myself occasionally, even if I do do it more than the average person. 

Most people, though, don’t think about bringing band-aids, alcohol wipes, and Neosporin on a trip. We never expect to get hurt on vacation, right?

That’s why I always recommend that hosts keep a basic first-aid kit in their space.

It’s the kind of thing that you’ll rarely need to replenish because it will be rarely used; but when it IS needed, there won’t be anything else that will work. Super hosts, to the rescue!
