Three Stitches and a Parking Ticket

... and a mangled pair of glasses.

No, not a biking injury, just a run of the mill accident during recess. You know, a boy thing.

No ER visit, just a quick trip to the wonderful doctor who fixed my face last spring. O.k., maybe not so quick -- I did get that parking ticket but I knew the risk when I left it at a meter. The parking agent was at the car when I got there and gave me some advise on how to appeal it based on the circumstances. No, she couldn't rip it up. It's all computerized these days ...

(If you look closely on the right, just behind his glasses, you will see the tape covering his stitches.)

My son has a scar in the exact same place -- a boy vs. boy thing! The two of them ran head on into each other at recess.

I have one too -- girl vs. dog thing. Girl looking down. Dog goin up! Two stitches for me ... major headache for dog.

Hey, we all get those scars. At least his blue eyes are still blue. Now, tell him to stop biting his nails. 'Cause I said so. (And I hope this other kid got it worse!)

Medicinal chocolate seems indicated for all. And how nice of the parking agent to recommend an appeal - good luck with that.

I have a small scar from stitches in the exact same place! I think it must be a very easy place to break the skin. You can tell Little Squid that he's in good company. Hugs!!!
