    1) I hit the corner of my forehead when I was 3 on a radiator. I still have a small scar about the size of a coffee bean.

    2) I burned my lower right arm by my wrist when I was about 5 or 6. I have a minor mark left.

    3) That same day I burned my arm, I almost drowned also. Still remember that awful event as if it were yesterday.

    4) I was riding my Bike really fast when I was 12 when I hit a large root of a tree growing from under the cement, did a 360 in the arm and landed on my head. And I did not wear a helmet that day. Luckly I didn't get knocked out or busted my skull but My left pinky nail came out and I sprained that same pinky and I had various cuts and scrapes. But I recovered.

    5) I've gotten hurt a lot over my childhood. :lol:
