    Nuns And Ambulances

    When i was seven, i tried to pick pears from a wall which separates a horse chestnut field and a convert. I fell off the wall, needed eight stitches in my head and was taken into the convent while i waited for an ambulance. It was bizarre.

    A Lesson I Didn't Learn

    My mom tried to shoo me away from the bathroom paranoid I'd get my fingers caught, but being the stubborn mule that I am just went to the other side. I put my hand in the crack right as she shut the door. The door crushed my toddler fingers. The hinge pinching my right ring...

    Too Many and Too Often

    The minor incidents didn't bother me. The usual repairs, nips or tucks didn't phase me. It was the repeated visits. It's the opening and closing, opening and closing of my back that annoyed me. Finally, after several botched attempts I said, "If you can't get it right...

    Two In The Lip

    I'm in with the cool kids now! Earlier this week I slammed my face into a stop sign pole. Texting was the culprit. It's looking good, and there isn't much pain anymore. I actually feel pretty cool- it's a mix of botox, Elvis syndrome, and cool-chick-who-gets-in-fights look.
