    One of my least fondest memories:

    My Grandfather ,whom reared, me use to pull the neighborhood kid's behind his tractor in a wagon. I was one of the youngest. One day some of my older friends were jumping off and on as we rode down the street. As I went to jump something got caught on the trailer. It spun me and I grabbed the lip of the trailer. My hands stopped listening to me and deathly clutched the edge of the trailer. I got dragged for two blocks on my knees on asphalt. Oh the blood..... I remember my GM putting petro jelly on my kneecaps. And the flies were relentless for a week or so (maybe thats why I love my plants so much........Hmmmmmm...).
    I always suspect everything could be a trap... thats why I'm still alive

    I shattered my right elbow this weekend, went to the emerg and got x-rays and they told me it was just a sprain and let me go...
    I went to work the next morning anmd when I came home my wife said "the hospital called, they want youto call back"

    I called, and was told that my arm was broken after all and I should return to get a cast put on ....

    and once, while wearing heavy work socks, the handle on a gallon pot of boiling potatoes broke when I picked it up, spilling boiling water all over my foot... as I rolled anbout in agony I ripped the boiling sock off; all the skin came off with it... that was super painful too.....

    PS to my friends here, don't worry if my PMs seem curt for a while, I am right handed and can't use that one much (this post took 15 minutes to type [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img])

    Tamlin--I burst out laughing in my office. Oh. I'm sorry...I shouldn't laugh at someone's misfortune and tragedy. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Yeeegads I'm sitting here squirming and groaning as I read all these gruesome stories. Ewwwwwwwwww!

    In the fourth grade I was playing a jumping game on the ladder monkey bars (teacher nowhere around). I saw myself miss the bar and the next thing I knew I was opening my eyes with a crowd of kids around me. I got up and then saw my arm looked funny. I felt funny. I felt like I was in a dream and my left arm had a strange, large white bump on it at the inside elbow. Every time I tried to straighten my arm out, it would twist all the way around--360 degrees. I thought that rather odd....

    I eventually ended up with a freaked out mother in the emergency room having my Girl Scout dress CUT off of me...get this...IN FRONT OF MY MINISTER who just happened to be there when they brought me in. I was pretty spaced out but not enough to not be MORTIFIED that my minister saw me half nekkid. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Anyway...I went into surgery. My elbow joint had been pulled apart (hence the bone almost through the skin and the odd rotation) and it was fractured up above the joint. I missed a lot of school and had to be isolated for a while (so as not to get jostled). I missed a lot of cool kid things--the fair, popular movies, my best friend's sleepover birthday party. It was a long recovery.

    I also ran full force into a wall in a cave and knocked myself flat. Felt like someone had hit me in the face with a baseball bat. I don't recommend doing that... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    OOOOH! Suzanne, you just reminded me of the time I fell off the top of the money bars (6 or 7 years old). I hit my funny bone on the way down...the LAST bar down, just to make sure I had MAXIMUM velocity. It felt like my arm was litterally on fire.

    I would love to be on a money bar instead of a monkey bar. lol [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] There are some interesting stories.

    I have been lucky as of not hurting myself or I do not remember. Back in the day we use to have a garden and would throw the rotted tomatoes at each other. Of course I hate tomatoes and my dad hit me on the back of the head. It was nasty. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_t_32.gif[/img]

    OWWWWWWWWWOOOOWWWWWW!! My whole body hurts due to these stories. The first one was the most gruesome to me. Knee bent backwards?! OW! Altrade gets seconds place...any guy would know why...anyway...I guess my worst injury was when I jumped off of a platform and something jammed into my knee. I didn't realize it at first and it didn't hurt at all. I just felt the blood running down my leg and the neighbor kid was like "Oh! I'll get a bandaid. I was like "Ummm I think this will need more than a bandaid" Well I went inside the house (I was at my Aunt's house at the time) and my Aunt looked all pale because of this hole in my knee. I was perfectly calm just a little shaken up because it didn't hurt at all. I couldn't find what went into my knee but it left me with 12 stitches...six inside and six outside. That's how deep it was. More like a scratch compared to half of the stuff you guys have been through. I also fell backwards off of my trampoline and landed flat on my back. That was a shocker. I was laughing though. LOL [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] Anyway I hope none of this gruesome stuff happens to me at all. I'm not one that can take a lot of pain (aka a wuss) but these things happen when you least expect it. Maybe I'll become a bubble boy O.o [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] or the incredible bubble wrap boy WOO HOO! just kidding [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
