Falling off a slide for me
I was trying to get something from the back of a car and leaned against the exhaust pipe- burned a ring shape into my knee (luckily it’s faded almost completely since)
Being hit by my brother’s shoe
No one knows why it was flying in the air
Oh I was doing a domino challenge(like human domino challenge, I know, I’m dumb) and I was doing the handstand but my hand was on an unbalanced surface (someone’s ankle lol) and I fell onto the side of a slide so yea
Oh, so many.
Got a concussion in 4th grade while pretending to be a cat during kickball.
Bruised my thumb when a spoon fell out of my closet onto my hand
Did powerslides during a song and my knees got so bruised and swollen (I was offered knee pads but refused them) that I could barely walk home that night
Burned part of my face a few weeks ago when I took something hot out of the microwave, having read the heat warning before I put it in, dropped it on the counter because it was hot, and it splashed on my face
& many more
I have a scar on my leg from going up the down escalator at Nebraska Furniture [name_u]Mart[/name_u].
I danced for 15 years but the first major injury I got (a sprained foot) came from a rehearsal where I had to practice running behind the stage and my foot slipped off the back of the wood in the dance room.
I snapped my fingernail last week from opening a tub of ice cream.
Quite a few… I’ll list a couple from elementary school.
I broke my finger by accidentally hitting it into a wall, one of the scars on my forehead is from tripping into a bookshelf, and the other scar on my forehead is from being slammed into the wall during sports practice.
I fractured a toe by stepping on a cat toy in the dark when I got up to pee and couldn’t be bothered to turn on the lights…
I have a scar on my foot that looks like a smiley face from standing on a plug, which I knew was there, when I was a child.
I also stubbed my toe several times on the windowsill in my last uni house. It was a really low windowsill and the blinds would get stuck a lot so I’d have to stand on the windowsill to reach. And no matter how much I focused on my foot placement so I wouldn’t stub my toe again, I would still managed to stub it. I eventually gave up with the blinds and just always kept them down because I was clearly incapable of adjusting them without injuring myself
I ran into a chair and got 3 stitches
I kicked a wall while pretending to be a ninja in drama and had to wear a foot brace for 2 weeks
I slipped on a wet rubber bridge at the playground and getting a concussion (I remember being afraid of that happening, but my mom told me it wasn’t going to.)
Trying to catch a ball flying at me and letting it break my finger instead
I was playing catch with a fork… nothing more needs to be told
I got a concussion from trying to play leapfrog with a yoga ball.
I have two pretty dumb soccer/football injuries, both times there was no one even near me.
I once badly bruised my wrist during a game in winter when the field was frozen, by simply losing my balance, landing on my butt and pointlessly trying to ‘break the fall’ with my wrists even though I had already landed? Then I also broke a collar bone right before exams at uni by just falling flat on my face. I probably also broke some other bone at the same time, because my rib cage still occasionally feels like I’m wearing a corset.
I have definitely gotten stupidly injured from soccer before… additionally, when I was on the school team in grade school, we had the highest rate of concussions for any sport.
I pulled a muscle in my back decorating a [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] tree.
You’ve just reminded me of the time I pulled a muscle in my arm from playing on the Wii
I jumped off a swing and broke my shoulder through the growth plate.
I have a scar on my thigh from when I accidentally impaled my leg with these really sharp scissors. It was at school as well
I stubbed my toe so hard I broke it. One month later I stub exact same toe but on the other foot.
