Fun Monday

So Karisma is hosting this week and this is what she would like:

"I want you to take a trip down memory lane, and keep right on going, right back to your childhood. And I want to hear "THAT STORY". You remember the one? Yes, you do! The one your parents, siblings, extended family or friends, would never let you forget, live down or get over!"

But first...embarrassing picture. and my little dorks.

Then me as a baby dork.

And last, me as a toddler dork...but the funny thing is now that I see this particular daughter looks just like that but with white blonde hair...wierd.

Now on to my story. I was probably 10 or so. Do keep in mind I was a fat kid so doing tricks on anything was a challenge. But for some reason, on this day, I was feeling light as a feather. I decided to do a trick on some monkey bars we had in our back yard. So I climbed out to the middle of the bars and proceeded to hang upside down. (Now also keep in mind I also had alot of hair...and it was past my butt). I tried for a dismount and my hair got caught in a screw on the monkey bars.

You have never heard screaming like that in your life.

I was hanging from that frickin' screw for what seemed forever (was told later is was about a minute and a half...still a long time). My mom was hysterically looking for scissors, but, in the meantime, my hair was kind enough to violently rip itself out of my scalp.

Now, after my "dismount", I really don't remember a whole lot. But my mom tells me that I had a very bloody and very large bald spot for a long time. No one could touch me or my head for about a day. All they could was give me kid's asprin for the pain and cough syrup to help me sleep. I do believe that was the very last time I EVER got on monkey bars. Those stupid things should come with a warning label:

"Hey you, yea, you fat chick, don't even think of climbing me. I will chew you hair off if you do. You don't believe me...try me...I am Monkey Bars...Hear me Rip Your Hair Out."

Yea...that is exactly what the warning label should say!!!!!

But now you need to go and read everyone elses...there is good long list of embarrassing stories so it should be a fun week!

Oh the pain and agony!!!! I am saying "ahhhhhhh" to myself here for you. My husband and I were friends with a guy years ago who wore his long hair in a ponytail and worked at a factory. He bent down and a machine grabbed his ponytail and ripped all the hair off his scalp even his eyebrows. Pretty serious injury. I am sorry for your pain. ~cringing~

OUCH! I hate for my hair to be pulled, but this is awful.
