Scar, mole, or tattoo? Any cool stories surrounding those?
#1 has a lot of scars (mostly on my hands) and a lot of moles and no tattoos. I keep meaning to write up a thing about why I will never have a tattoo or get my ears pierced or really do any sort of body ornamentation. I suspect in another society it would be considered a psychological disorder. Fortunately in this society nobody notices the absence.
I don’t know that I have any cool stories. My moles were merely one of the reasons I was teased as a child. One scar is from dropping a brick on my finger at swimming (we had to bring bricks up off the pool floor). Another scar is from breaking a glass with my wrist when play-wrestling one of my college almost-boyfriends (I think he found me smart, physically attractive, but annoying). My largest scar is from when I got a linoleum carving set for Christmas and the carver slipped and cut my left palm open from edge to edge. I probably should have gotten stitches, but my grandma was a nurse and just bandaged it up. I think could see my tendons. I almost passed out–maybe I did. I still used the set later and made some pretty nice Christmas and Birthday cards, just with heavy duty gloves. I have a lot of memories from childhood that probably should have been traumatic but I was very good at dissociating.
#2: I have no cool stories. Sorry.
