Over the past months I have been tagged a few times (thank you so much!) but I remained silent because I don't want to disappoint people by not choosing them to continue the "game". However, the tag that I got from Veronica at Veronica Darling's Crafty Adventures sounded amusing: 6 quirky yet boring details about myself. So here it goes...but I have a theme!
Six freaky medical facts about Clo...with an educational lesson!
1. When I was 4 years old, I wanted to tell my dad, who was cutting the grass with a lawn tractor, that I made Kool-Aid. Without my mom realising, I ran to my dad, fell under the tractor, cut most of my left leg and one of my little toe. I stayed 15 days at the hospital, got a skin transplant and learned to walk again.
Lesson: Don't drink Kool-Aid!
2. When I was 12 years old, I got diagnosed with a scoliosis (spine is curved from side to side). I had to wear an orthopedic corset for 4 years. I got a medical paper to skip gym class until I g0t used to the corset. It turned out that I "never" really wanted to get used to it so I decided to skip gym class for 4 years...ah ah ah!!!
Lesson: There is always a bright side!
3. When I was 19 years old, I shaved my legs in winter while I had dry skin. I scratched my legs so much that I developed a folliculitis (infection of the hair follicle). I had to take antibiotics for a month.
Lesson: Get your legs waxed!
4. When I was 22 years old, I purchased a vintage side table that needed to be stripped. I got eco-friendly paint remover and I used it inside my loft since it didn't smell bad. It turned out that it blocked one of my lungs and that I needed urgent medical assistance.
Lesson: Be suspicious of eco-friendly products.
5. When I was 25 years old, I had thin crust pizza for dinner. The crust was very dry and it cut the back of my mouth. A few days after I couldn't open my mouth or turn my head. The cut didn't heal and the infection spread to my ear/neck canal. I had to take antibiotics for 3 weeks.
Lesson: Don't eat pizza crust!
6. Now that I live in the city, every year I get the flu...not a bad cold...the FLU! You know that virus that makes you scream at your husband for no reason because you just can't take it anymore.
Lesson: Get a job that allows you to take a 2 week sick leave every winter!
So, if anybody feels like a medical freak just play along!
And what do you think of my latest needle felt friend: Sir Quack of Montreal?
