|First black eye|
You would think this incident would start off with something like "Last week at roller derby..." but instead it begins in the bathroom. Yeah, seriously. Don't worry, this will not be a TMI post, I was actually just bending down to pick something up. It was when I straightened that it happened. I must have straightened up way too quickly because all of a sudden there were stars exploding in front of my eyes and ringing in my ears. With my hand to my head I literally felt the bump grow... very weird. I figured the worst I had to worry about was headaches, which I've had for a few days, and missing at least one day of Camp Gladiator (Patrick did not, in fact, let me work out the next day) but I didn't think I'd end up with a black eye. It's not painfully obvious, but the bruise that is still mostly on my forehead has moved down around my eye just in time for a wedding. The space between my eyes is also swollen, but the goose egg is pretty much gone. I would like to say "Yeah, I look bad but you should see the other guy..." but the door knob pretty much looks the same. Maybe next time I'll win.
So what's your story? Any epic bruises to tell about?
