    One of our members burned her mouth on a hot apple pie. She really got scorched. (See Does McDonalds really have the worst burgers ..) Have you ever had a memorable injury?

    I grew up one of six, lets see, did I have injuries?...  shot in chest with an arrow, by older brother!  (it cost him my punishment of 6 mo. doing dishes!)  and so it goes...

    So, it was (almost) a positive event? :)

    You bet Ducky, I have an incredible tolerance for pain!

    When I was 6 years old I stepped on a rusty nail in my backyard and I had to get a tetanus shot. LOL I just finished looking at the bottom of my foot to see if I have a scar.


    When I was 6 or 7 I broke my wrist while trying to skate across a 2 by 4.  I remember it happened during the day, but for some reason I had to stay the night in the hospital.  It was a creepy old hospital with institutional green walls. That hospital was torn town several years later.

    That hospital sounds like one Steven King would write about.

    When I wath theven I wath playing at trampolineth on my bed.. I fell and nearly bit my tongue in half, my Mother told me they wouldn't thtitch it up in cathe it affected my thpeech, I'm glad they took that dethision.


    Just kidding but it really happened.

    Did they stitch it?
    Sometimes my grandchildren get wild and vault over my furniture. Their mom says, "Let them do it. They have to learn."
    Well, it scares ME and no more will that happen at my house. I don't want an accident like yours happening.
    Your poor mother. What a terrible thing to happen. How old were you?

    You guys are nothing, I had 3 years of speech therapy just to say my “S’s” right. You should have heard me. My parents called me a “hard headed, hare lipped, half wit” because I talked funny…….

    I don’t get it, they laughed every time they said it! My grandmother started crying when she heard them and I comforted her by saying, “Yes, I are dumb too, Bama (her name)

    I said:

    I predict one. I’m going to THE PRICE IS RIGHT in Aug. I’ll probably get called and if I do, I’ll fall down in front of the camera for all the world to see……….

    When I have to speak in front of many people I'm always afraid I'll wet my pants.
    It hasn't happened yet. But then I don't speak in front of crowds very often.
    jhharlan

    Oh, Itsmee, I have NO trouble talking in front of anyone as long as I’m sure of what I’m saying……...

    Excellent question, Mr. Hector! I wondered the same thing. I thought it might have been Granny Smith.
    However, I guess CB got the right answer.

    Tee hee hee

    When I was about 16 I was making ice tea and thoughtlessly I poured the boiling water over the inner part of my left arm. The pain almost knocked me out.


    As an adult I let the hot glue gun stuff fall on my inner left arm. It's worse than boiling water because when the hot glue touches your skin you are unable to get in off. Terrible memory of pain.

    LOL.Too many memorable injuries to list here.
