The Memories.

When most people talk about their scars, they seem to note either sad times, or thrilling ones.  But, most of mine are just plain funny - mainly because most of the stories surrounding them.

I have several scars on my body. I have one that looks like a line above the left side of my upper lip. This one has quite the funny story attached to it. I was born overseas (I mean outside the United States), and I lived outside the states for the first part of my life. Then when I was around 6 years old, my family decided to move back to the United States. And, the moment I got off the plane and stepped onto United States soil, I fell flat on my face and busted my lip open. Not the best start I would say..

Then I had several biopsies performed on my upper leg because I had an unknown condition that caused whiting of the skin on the outsides of my thighs, (I am naturally very light skinned, but this would cause it to go pure white). And, each one of these procedures resulted in small circular scars on my legs.

I also have a scar on the inside of my right arm from slicing it on a barbwire fence while hiking. The story associated with that one was quite funny in that I had to walk all the way back which was about 1.5 miles. I luckily made it, but I remember giggling the entire way back, (mild shock, maybe?). And then when I did reach the emergency room, I remember they tried to giving me an anesthetic before putting the stitches in and the solution just kept shooting back up through the hole. AHAHA! It was funny yet disgusting all at the same time.
