Memories: My sister's stitches

Something I bother my sister about all the time is the scar she has on her left eyebrow. It's not as bad as it sounds, the scar is small and hidden by eyebrow hair, but the story is quite funny. 

She was in 3rd grade, I was in 7th and it was probably spring. We decided that we would go to the park with our friend Taylor and our dog. Taylor is one of my oldest friends, we've known each other since we were two.
Anyways, we went to the park and my sister, Lauren, rode her bike there. When we got to the park Taylor and I went to the playground and Lauren rode around on her bike with the dog. I don't know how this happened but one minute my sister is on her bike holding the dogs leash and the next shes on the floor next to a tether ball pole. Taylor and I both run over to Lauren who's got blood on her face and is crying. We decided to leave the bike at the park, ditch the shoes and rush my sister back home before she drowns in blood. (Okay, so it wasn't that bloody but as little kids it looked like she might die.) So, here we are Taylor and me waking my sister to our house with one of us with no shoes. I can't remember who didn't have shoes on I know someone did.
Alright, so how did my sister mange to hurt herself? Well, as she tells it, she was riding her bike and looked back at Aluchi, our dog, following her behind and when she looked forward again there was a tether pole coming for her face. What I don't understand is how you end up getting 4 stitches because you bumped into a ROUND tether pole. How does that happen?! This is the thing I bother her about to this day. Getting stitches because you were stupid enough to crash into a round tether pole. I think it's just a sister thing that makes it obligatory to bother her about this silly incident. 


  1. What a funny but scary incident! :)

  2. Aaww I feel bad for your sister! I hope she can laugh about it now. First the egg, now you're teasing her about her stitches... Great sister you are, Vanessa :p. But there's one thing I don't understand: why did one of you ditch her shoes? XD
