Roasting Marshmallows Around A Fire

I was only 5 years old. One of my older brothers was having a bonfire party with his friends and so I was hanging our with them.

We were roasting marshmallows and some of them were playing baseball nearby. In a split second the baseball hit the fire. A branch was sent flying. I had turned by back to go inside the house to go to the bathroom. It took a few seconds for me to realize that my lower back and hair was on fire. My brother's friend beat the crap out of the flame (and me) while my mom called 911.

It was a severe burn and it got treated but there is still a scar. At least it was just my lower back, an area of the body you don't need to use for anything besides a tramp stamp. I just thank God I survived and that it wasn't somewhere else.
