This is a question Missing body parts

Now there are some bits of your body you don't mind losing - my dad's just got rid of a kidney stone, my own tonsils once tried to asphyxiate me, and nobody wants warts.

Other bits are more useful - a family friend recently lost an arm... which would be OK if his job wasn't managing dis-armament talks.

What have you lost, and where did you leave it?

My girlfriend
grew up in Mexico where it seems they are quite relaxed about young children playing with sharp things.

When she was about 4 she was playing with a machete with her cousin, who swung it and sliced her open just below the ear.

A few years later, helping an aunt grind cinnamon she got her finger caught in the mill. The aunt was an amateur nurse and cleaned it up a bit. Now well enough it seems as when her Mum checked it a few days later the finger had turned black. Apparently it was verging on gangrenous and almost had to be amputated.

Finally, aged 14, she decided she wanted to open a coconut so, naturally, went and got her uncle's machete. Whack! End of her thumb left dangling.

How she still has a full complement of digits I don't know.
