Did anyone else have weird injuries as a kid? I actually don’t remember most of my childhood because it was pretty miserable but out of my many visits to the ER every year there’s a few I remember vividly (although whether they happened in the way I think or not I can’t tell for sure).
(Around 6) We’d had a barbecue and the disposable grill had been sitting in gravel. After the grill was removed, I stepped on the scorching gravel and got really badly burned. I had to wear a cast for months.
(Around 8) My dad closed the door behind him and my fingers got smushed in the automatic lock. The tip of my little finger almost came off.
(Around 4) We were walking into town and I slipped on the ice and my mom grabbed my arm and yanked me up, which caused my shoulder to sprain.
(Around 1,5) My parents left a pot of coffee on the coffee table and I pulled the tablecloth and got scalding hot coffee all over my chest and stomach.
(Around 12) Some kid on the beach was poking at a dead jellyfish with a stick and managed to flick a large piece of it onto my leg (asshole).
