Today's Friday Five questions are about scars and injuries…
1. Have you ever had braces? Any other teeth trauma?
Heck yeah. My front teeth crossed, and my back teeth were worse, so I got braces in an attempt to give me a bit more normal of a smile (not to mention correcting a problem I had with a slipped disc in my jaw). They took enamel off of my molars, but I do like my smile a lot better now.
2. Ever broken any bones?
My right wrist, twice. The first time by falling while flying a kite on a wet day. The second time was before my senior year of high school—I fell out of a lofted bed. I'll tell that story sometime.
3. Ever had stitches?
4. What are the stories behind some of your [physical] scars?
I have a one-inch scar on my chin from where I fell down in the bathtub when I was four. Oh, and I have tons of chickenpox scars. Boring, eh?
5. How do you plan to spend your weekend?
I don't know. I'm waiting to find out the results of my father's biopsy to know whether or not I need to make a mad-dash seven-hour drive to Arkansas to be with my family. Otherwise, I'm going to watch Following with friends in a desperate attempt to get away from the rapidly-worsening situation which is my family life.
