Originally, I wasn't going to link up this week with Glamazon and Mamarazzi for their Friday Confessional. Not because I didn't want to, but I am SO far behind on emails and blogs that I had decided to take the day off and get caught up.
While reading through a few of the emails/comments regarding my VLOG from yesterday, I realized there is a very big confession I must make.
Did you watch it? If not, scroll down and watch it. It'll take you just over 3 minutes.
Did you notice anything?
More specifically, regarding MY FACE???
A "dimple", perhaps?
Well, I must confess that it is NOT a dimple. It is a scar.
Wanna know how I got it?
Sit back, and I'll tell you a little story...
I was 12. My chore in the household was laundry.
I was down in the basement, in the laundry room, tending to my responsibilities, when I heard my older sister, Meg, and my little brother, Bawty, having a fight upstairs. In our house, fighting was really more of an Olympic event.
We were all well rehearsed in dramatic brawls, sometimes using only words, and other times wielding weapons of moderate destruction.
I exited the laundry room, and was standing at the foot of the stairs, when Bawty zoomed past me into the basement, jumping the last 4 steps, and maneuvering so as not to run into me and my giant laundry basket.
THEN I heard a scream.
Not a second later, my face met the impact of the chair Meg had thrown down the stairs...intended for Bawty.
My face was bloodied, and my glasses broke. The force of the blow was later realized when we found the right lense to my glasses 2 floors up from the location of the accident, in our attic loft.
But I didn't drop the laundry basket!
I missed a week of school because I couldn't open my jaw wide enough to eat food that wasn't mashed or extremely soft.
As luck would have it, I ended up missing my entire frog dissection in science class!
A few years later, when my high school anatomy teacher complimented my dimple, and informed me that "they're genetic, ya know?", I just laughed, and said..."Sure are! I got this one from my sister!"
I don't think he got the joke.
Now it's YOUR turn to link up! Go do it! NOW!
