  • Where do I start?
    1" scar on my foot from a screen door - I wasn't fast enough as a child

    1/2" & thick scar on my knee from falling on a sprinkler head as a child

    3" "scratch" scar + 1/2 dozen 1/4" "bite" scars on my right arm from a cat attack @ 2yo - it put me in the hospital for 5 days from infection

    I have about a dozen scars from getting moles removed - some cosmetically and others because they were "suspicious" but check out fine in the lab

    I have a 3" keloid scar on my left shoulder-looks like an old knife wound so when people ask I say it's from being stabbed in the back

    And the mother of all scars... from far right ribcage cutting in a wave pattern across my chest to the far left ribcage - 1 long scar. It's from open heart surgery as an infant to fix a quarter-sized hole in my heart. Add to this the 1/2 dozen 1/2" scars and small round scars from the drainage tubes and electrodes from the same procedure

  • My right chin--fell in a hole that was covered in metal
    My right foot--stepped on glass
    Another on my right foot--stepped on glass again

    I think that's it--besides my few stretch marks :)

  • scar on my hand/fingers from a curling iron burn when i was very little (not that noticeable but I can tell its there)
    small scar on my lower back from a barb-wire fence when i was young (helping my dad herd cattle, it didn't really hurt or bleed or anything but the scar never went away)
    and of course the nasty frankenstein like scars on my ankle from when I broke it in 2004... about 2inches long with the stitch/staple marks on both sides of my ankle. they have gotten better but still gross me out :( I have 6 screws and a 2inch metal plate in my ankle still...
