But now for something even more personal...
X is for: X-ray.
I've only had ONE broken bone in my life. (Okay, technically it was two: the radius and ulna in my ONE wrist, ONE time).
I was a sophomore in college, living on campus and being totally stupid and irresponsible as only a sophomore living away from her parents can be. We were at a party, I had a few drinks, and suddenly wanted to climb up a friend's bunk bed because I've never been in a bunk bed before (And yes, my life has so vastly improved from that experience).
Anyhew, this wasn't your average bunk bed. It was much higher. My friend lived alone in her dorm and thought it would be cool to suspend her bed between two desks instead.
I don't really know how I got up there to be honest. The ladder didn't reach all the way to the top. So when it was time for me to come down my friends pulled out a chair for me to lightly drop down on. Brilliant idea except I was in socks so when I dropped onto the chair I slipped right off of it.
And landed in a trashcan.
Well, luckily another friend was nearby to drive me to the ER, where I had X-rays and was put into a cast.
End of story. Well, not really the end. My boyfriend at the time was not pleased that I went to a party without him, I missed a lot of classes and had to reschedule exams, I had THE worst time trying to fend for myself with one arm and no mommy around, and my parents weren't exactly thrilled with how I broke my wrist either. Good times.
Anyhew, that's the first and last time I ever broke anything.
How about you? Have you ever broken a bone? What did you break? How old were you?
