WALL WALKING

Question Of The Week, 2-13-17

Where is the weirdest scar on your body and how did you get it.
  (Comments are added to this page after you post them.  Thanks for your responses.)
I have a small scar on my foot, where a scalpel fell off my drawing board and landed blade down into the bone on the top. 

I have a scar on my knee from falling while walking a stone wall around my elementary school. Thought I could clean it up until I saw bone:-( Stitches and everything.

On my left ankle, the one I broke and the bone went through the skin.

I'm covered with little chicken pox scars here and there, more there than here lol. I've had them so long I really don't notice them anymore. There is one right beside my nose that is quite noticeable.

My C-section scars are the most visible but I do have a tiny half moon scar on my thumb that I scraped on the license plate while washing my dad's car as a kid.

I have bumps, dents and lumps galore but the only scars are man made from surgery and I don't think that counts. Even all my 13 dog bites healed with out scars. I am feeling rather left out.

I have two scars on my temples from my halo device from when I broke my neck. The scars didn't heal well because I knocked the halo loose a few times. I broke my neck diving into shallow water in the Sea of Japan.

I'm also missing the tip of one toe from when I cut it off with a lawn mower when I was fifteen. There's a scar in my forehead where I was hit with a rock during a fight, and scars in my left hand from where a rod was inserted to keep my hand from moving after I displaced my wrist. The rest of the scars are more mundane and less visible.
I have a large scar over my right eye. The weird part? I have no idea how it got there!

I did back flips off the edge of the local pool, got really dizzy, but kept going until I hit my forehead on the edge. Almost got the temple, close call - could have bit the dust! Ten stitches n a ride in the police car. I was 10.
No more back flips tho I still do some diving board tricks

define weirdest. The one that looks the oddest? the one that is totally unexplainable?
Okay, I have a double-barreled scar on my right knee from when I walked through a plate glass door and the skin got all crinkled up and couldn't be straightened, so it healed funny and many years later a tiny sliver of glass worked its way out and I'd never felt it in there the whole time

I have a tiny scar between my eyebrows that I got as a youngster when I was doing chin ups on the swing set in our back yard. I pulled up onto a rusty screw - much bleeding and then a tetanus shot. :)

Not a good scar (it's rather big. :( ) I have a wide scar on the right side of my stomach under my ribs...I was 36 weeks pregnant with my dear daughter (Natalie)(I was HUGE at this point...) and my appendix broke (but I did not know it.) I had an emergency appendectomy at around 11:30 PM after days in the hospital being ill. The doctor said he was 'the first to hold' my daughter. (He saved our lives...he was a very young surgeon and he was rather excited about the surgery he performed on 'us.') They stapled me UP (with a lot of staples...) and I delivered my daughter about 3 weeks later (with the huge, tender scar) on the upper right side of my BIG belly. It was tough. It was realllll hard. I cried many tears. Women...are tough.


The scar stories remind me of one of my commanders, an Air Force Colonel (O-6). He'd been a forward ground controller in Vietnam. The air base suffered a mortar attack one night. He was ordered out afterward to look for snipers and un-exploded ordnance (snipers would set up to pick off the EOD teams). To cut out much of the story, he and a sniper engaged in a furious hand to hand fight. The Colonel won the fight but his skull had been split open. Twenty-four staples right across the crown was required. Those staples and their scars - his hair was short cut and you could see a knobby ridge - was how the story was introduced. Thanks for an intriguing post. Cheers

i have on my elbow ,it came with burning with boiled water and i dont want others to see it 


During the 1st stop on my current career path (so to speak) I managed to cut off the tip of my finger with a huge clamp. And when I was but a child, I managed to sandpaper a finger nail down to almost nothing in shop class.
A triangular scar just above my right elbow that I got when I was attacked by a cat. The cat flew through the air and I raised my arm to prevent it from getting at my face. He attached onto my arm and was bunny-kicking with his hind legs until I managed to pull him off with my other arm. It was like pulling on velcro and took two attempts to finally get him off. I had tons of scratches and one triangular hole in my arm to show for it.

    1. Did you only do that once? You must have learned to be more careful. I keep dropping things on top of my feet. Yikes!

    1. I remember when that happened and didn't think it would leave you with a scar. Guess I didn't realize the bone went through the skin.

    1. That reminds me of a friend who woke up one morning with two cracked ribs. He had no idea how he got them.

    2. You reminded me that I have a scar over my left eye that I got while standing up in the car and my dad stopped suddenly. I fell forward and hit the open ashtray. Not one smoker in the car so don't know why it was open. Long before seat belts and I was just a toddler.

    1. Ouch, ouch, ouch! Yes that would be an event to remember. I would never have gotten near a diving board at all after that.

    1. That would count as "weirdest" don't you think? I have heard of glass wiggling its way out after years.

    1. Oh wow, this reminds me of the time my sister was playing fortune teller in an old box in our front yard and when she crawled inside the box she got a rusty nail in her ear. Yep, lots of bleeding for her too and a tetanus shot.

    2. I follow several others. When I click on someone's blog and enjoy a post, I often try to see who they follow and open my horizons. I have a blog at https://mwseidel.net/. It's mostly regarding life with cats and my wife, and first world complaints, along with my writing endeavors.

    1. Where were you? Was it your cat, a friend's cat or a stray? Was it tested for rabies? OMG!

  17. I suppose mine would be the scar that runs down the front of my right leg and around the ankle. I got caught in a metal gate hook riding in cutoffs. and it tore my leg open. Years latter an undissolved stitch would work its way out...
