50. How did you get one of your scars? I was in a car accident that broke an arm, sprained a wrist, and broke a finger, smashed me into the glass window, cut off a bunch of my hair with glass shards, and tore my earing out of my ear. Most of my scars are from that. Only one really bad scar on my right shoulder from the window, and a lump of tissue that was compressed and formed into a lump on my leg where the nerves are damaged (the spot is numb permanently, it's kind of cool, the seatbelt did it.) and a cyst on my wrist from the sprain. Those are my funnest scars, but the ones I appreciate the most. Like the nerve damage on my leg from the seatbelt that kept me in the car, and kept me alive.
Okay, I tag anyone who feels up to typing this much!
