This is a question Scars with history

You've all got scars: they're nature's little reminders not to be so damned stupid next time. My favourite is the 1/4" round hole in the back of my right hand, created when I was 7 by my best friend putting a manure-covered gardening fork "away".

Tell us the stories behind your scars. With photos if possible.

I'm really pale skinned, so my scars are really hard to see once they're a few years old, but I have a lovely big one near my right armpit that took 10 stitches to close from when I was 8 years old, and fell down the stairs, stabbing myself with my brother's Buck Rogers space ship. It hurt like hell, but it was weird, because there was no blood! It was just a big pink, gaping hole. IN MY ARM! Something about the shape of the nose of the ship, I think. I got stitched up, but my drunken dad never took me back to the hospital to get a checkup, so the stitches burst, and I had to spend weeks making hospital visits to get some weird sulphur thing stuck in my arm.

I also have a lovely long scar on my right knee from surgery to screw my leg together after a tree fell on me, breaking my leg, ankle in two places, collar bone, and fracturing my skull.

Plus I have a long thin scar on the back of my right hand from a scratch fight with Michael Zoryk when I was 10. He was sorry and gave me cherry lip balm to rub on it, which was nice of him!

Last November, while half asleep (not drunk at all!), I slipped on the stairs, and bounced down on my arse, unfortunately catching my right little toe in the banister. Here is a pretty picture of it..
