Re: Ridiculous Injuries

Amazingly I've not managed to give myself any bad injuries through my own stupidity yet, but I'm sure the time will come.

Miss Chicken, your son sounds as accident-prone as my teenaged son, except that my son has never broken any bones or had a concussion. How the hell he's managed to escape serious injury is beyond me, because this is the child who's fallen out of tall trees and all sorts. My husband and I concluded when our son was not yet 2 that he has a granite skull and titanium bones. By rights he should have had several broken bones, at least three concussions, and a few dozen stitches by now, but he's never even been to A&E, though I have done several overnight concussion watches with him.

A few months ago a friend of mine tore her achilles tendon while doing the Gangam Style dance. She was stone-cold sober at the time. Needless to say her beloved friends will never, ever let her forget this.
