Sarah and I were talking about scars last night and I started lamenting that I don’t have any interesting scars.

There are people who have scars that tell an interesting story:- “That’s the scar I got while part of the Navy’s Underwater Demolitions Team…”

  • “I got that scar while hiking barefoot up Mount Everest…”
  • “That scar marks the spot where the tiger’s jaws closed around my arm…”

Instead, all of my scars are from really mundane, boring events and accidents:

  • The scar on my elbow is from falling off my bicycle at an extremely low speed while trying to make a tight corner right in front of the house.
  • The scar on my finger is from a cut that I got while fixing a bicycle.
  • The scar on my leg is the result of a cut I got while hiking.
  • The scar near my eye is from the time another kid hit me in the head with a tennis racket when I was just a little kid.

I guess I’ll just have to start doing more interesting things if I want to get more interesting scars.
