This week’s topic: Scars You Have
I’ll admit, when I saw the topic my thought was, “I picked a hard week to jump back in!” It’s not that I don’t have scars – I’m one of the clumsiest people you’ll ever meet, I HAVE SCARS. I just don’t really have particularly interesting ones or ones you want to see pictures of or anything. I really have one scar with an okay story.
When I first learned how to ride a bike without training wheels, I was a disaster. I had NO confidence. As soon as I realized that my dad wasn’t holding on to the seat, I’d fall. Even if I’d been riding for a good minute without him, I just didn’t believe in my ability to ride the bike. It took me a good couple weeks to learn how to ride on my own. Well, shortly after I finally got to the point where I could ride on my own, I was riding down the sidewalk and freaked out and lost control of the bike and ran into a parked car. But I didn’t just run into it, I scraped along the bumper from one end to the other before landing in a heap on the ground. I was pretty much unscathed, except for a long scrape down my left thigh. I don’t actually remember it hurting or anything. I didn’t get stitches even. But ever since then, I’ve had this long ass scar down my left thigh.
And that’s the only interesting scar I have. Probably the only scar I actually remember how I got. Because clumsy people try not to focus on those dumb moments that end in scars 😉
What about you? Any crazy scars?
