Re: Broken Bones!

I'll be 46 in August and have officially never broken any bone yet. I say officially because I may have broken a toe about 20 years ago. Like Rhubarb I was walking around barefoot without my glasses and I smacked my foot into a chair. It hurt like hell and the toe turned purple over the next few days, but it didn't hurt when I flexed it, so didn't have it checked out.

Re: Broken Bones!

My eldest son - who seems to lack even the most basic of common sense when it comes to danger - has broken a finger, his nose twice, his hand, a couple of ribs and most recently a leg. He has also had his hand badly cut, received a concussion when he ran into a netball pole, and lost his front teeth when he and some boys were fooling around with a swing. He also managed to set his t-shirt on fire which resulted in third degree burns. Most, but not all, of his childhood injuries occured at school not at home. All of his adult injuries occurred when he had been drinking.

My middle son broke his foot as an adult when he jumped over a wall while chasing a thief.

My youngest son has never had a broken bone (or had any other sort of accident that required medical treatment).

The spider survived unscathed
I haven't hurt myself (yet - knock on wood), but this week, I've been so clumsy that I'm thinking I should tell my friends to start calling me Rosalind Shays. (Here's a link to Youtube if anyone doesn't know what I mean by that.)

A couple of weeks ago, I managed to slice my finger open while chopping vegetables - not from the blade slipping, but from pressing down too hard on the top of the knife.

I broke my skull a couple years ago. I was 31. Before that I was break-free, respiratory diseases being more my style.

27, no broken bones. Not from lack of trying, though. It seems like I was always falling hard off of something as a child, I just never broke anything.

If we're going to tell family's stories, nothing beats my parents': Once, when I was about ten, my mom and dad were fighting. My mother was so angry she slammed a door in my dad's face, unintentionally breaking his nose. She slammed it so hard, though, that it bounced back and hit her in the face, breaking her nose too!

Re: Broken Bones!

LOL I can imagine what the folks at the hospital said upon hearing that accident report! Did the marriage survive that accident?

Miss Chicken, your eldest son sounds a bit dangerous to know. It#s amazing that you didn't get caught up in his accidents, too. I bet the insurance keeps his file in a special folder as he's on the verge of ruining them

Re: Broken Bones!

^And rightfully so, apparently.


Hubby had a broken nose and a broken wrist (motorcycle accident). The broken nose story is pretty funny:

He used to have this old Nissan that everyone called The Frankenstein Car, because it had parts from dozens of other vehicles---a red door, a blue hood, a green fender; it even had a hole in the floor. One day, when he lived with his mother, he got in the car and started it; it was a cold morning, so he thought he'd warm it up some. But hubby hadn't bothered to open the garage door yet. He wasn't aware that the car now also had problems staying in gear, because he got in, started it, and hit the gas to rev the engine...and the car apparently slipped into reverse. It shot out backwards through the very heavy, solid wood garage door and ended up in the street.

Hubby got out, dazed and bruised, but none the worse for wear, and sees the perfect car-shapped hole he's put in his mother's garage. He started picking up the bits and pieces, knowing she'd be angry, so he figured if he cleaned it up, she'd be less angry, I guess. But one piece was apparently attached to the heavy-duty spring. He pulled on it and the bit of spring shot up and hit him square between the eyes, breaking his nose and putting a nice little gash right down the middle of it.The force knocked on his butt. He's sitting there, stunned, wood everywhere and his face covered in blood; one of his neighbors sees this, goes running out and takes him to the hospital.

His mother gets home, sees the car parked in the street, wood fragments everywhere, a car shaped hole in the garage and a huge trail of blood. There's a message on her answering machine. "Hi Mom! Um....let me explain........"

He still has a little scar right down the middle of his nose but you can barely see it.

Re: Broken Bones!

I fractured my left arm (elbow) falling off a three legged stool when I was 7 or 8, it healed in just a few days. When I was 9 I fractured my left wrist after falling off a rock on the beach awkwardly, it was about 10 feet and I landed on sand, only just missing a small rock. *shudder*

Since then I've been break free, about 10 years now. I've gotten away pretty lightly.
