  1. We used to play ice hockey on this pond in the woods behind my neighborhood. There were about eight of us we all had skates and hockey sticks. The pond was perfect for hockey as it had two natural goals existing, one at each end. They were just tree stumps located just off the ice, but for us they were goals. I had the puck and I had a breakaway goal (situation where there was no defending players between me and the goal) and as I drew back my stick to take my shot, this kid hooked me (used his stick to trip me). The physics of this event seem about as likely as threading a needle simply by throwing string at it, but somehow his stick found its way inside my right skate blade. This caused me to fall forward and my neck landed on the right tree stump which was part of the goal. I laid on the ground in pain, but when I finally got up, I had this giant scar all across my neck and I was not able to talk for several days. It looked like someone sewed my head on like the Frankenstein monster.

  2. I’ve fallen on the ice many, many times, and I always seem to land on some vulnerable body part (hip, shoulder, etc. ). Miraculously, I have never gotten anything worse than bruises from any of those falls. In fact, at 68 years old I had come to think of myself as essentially unbreakable… until last November anyway, when I tripped on my own feet (indoors), and landed the wrong way and broke my left foot. So much for my supposed unbreakability…

  3. Several times. I grew up in snowy and icy weather in Minnesota. Although the worst time, I was 27 or 28 and lived in Denver Colorado, I fell on a small patch of ice and broke two bones in my left foot.
