When I was 4, my mother and I were on our way to exchange some gifts that I had gotten
for my birthday. I was riding in the front seat (no seat belts were required then either), and telling my mom about a new TV show that I had watched..... anyone remember "The land of the Lost"?
Anywho..... As I was talking I went to roll down the window, and instead I grabbed the door handle.
The door flung open, taking me with it. Somehow my mother had managed to grab my arm. I remember looking down and boy was I running fast! Eventually my arm slipped from her hand and I landed in the road, hitting my head. I remember being in the ambulance, and knowing my mom was in the front..... and screaming my head off...lol. Long story short, I broke both legs, my right hip, and my pelvis. I spent a long time in traction in the hospital, and then was sent home in a body cast! I got really good at dragging myself through the shag carpet in the living room :)
My poor mom would cry everytime I mentioned it, even when I got older. Poor Momma.
K, so remember my packratness? I kept the silly cast for 20 years... seriously...lol. I finally threw it away when Mike and I got married!
'nuff babbling :) Thanks friends~!
