Victor going through my old pictures:

Victor: Who’s this?

me: Me when I was a kid.

Victor: Um…you have an enormous cast on your head.

me: Yup.

Victor: Are there bars on the windows?

me: Possibly.  I think maybe that was when I was still at hospital.

Victor: This explains SO much.

A local animal control officer dropped her at the local veterinary hospital, and they put her head in a cast, called her parents, and told them that she may be brain damaged for life.

    And good on Hailey for being vigilant about watching those angel statues. There is a HUGE Jesus statue on the side of a local church and I keep an eye on him whenever I drive past. You just never know.

  93. I had the exact same thing when I had ear surgery at the age of 12. I had to wear the giant head cast for several weeks. I couldn’t wash my hair. It was gross.

  94. Actually, it reminds me of somebody being scalped. not that I have experience in that area … but my mom swears I have stitches in my head under my hair somewhere.

    However, I do find it interesting that your parents chose to take a picture while you were sleeping, instead of being awake so you could at least make a face at the camera. Was it one of those, “she’s so much sweeter when she’s Asleep?” Or a “oh look, the mad cobra is sleeping, lets take a picture NOW so that we can be far away before she wakes up!”

  95. At least they didn’t put one of those cones on your head to keep you from itching it… kinda fun to imagine it though.

Shortly after I woke up and before I finally got to go home, my mother told me that she wished she had taken a picture so I could see what I looked like. I was like “Really?!!
