Nobody Will See It

Look at my childhood picture on the right side of the page at the top. You can see a big knot on my forehead. I was eight when the picture was taken. I remember being so upset about the ugly knot on my forehead because we were having school pictures taken the next day. Mom said, "It won’t show in a picture so don’t worry about it, and it might even be gone by morning". The knot wasn’t gone by morning and she said, "Nobody will see the picture, but us, so it’s okay". Little did we know I would post the picture on the Internet and the whole world can look at it. I’m proud of that battle scar. When you survive to adulthood with two older brothers, it’s quit a feat. I’m just kidding!!!
The funny thing is that I can’t remember how I got the knot at all. I just remember being upset because I was going to have my picture taken. I’m sure my own clumsiness had a lot to do with it. Bottom line:
Nobody will see it and nobody will give a rats rear if they do see it.

Funny how things become less important as we get older, at 8 a school picture is so important. I never even noticed the bump I guess your Mom was right in the end.
And I think you should get a medal for having older brothers, I never had one but I think Jim's sister had to be strong to survive him.

Just like Cora, I had never noticed the bump before in that picture. :) Having Terry around now is enough for me to be very thankful now to Mom that I never had any brothers to deal with! :) He definitely makes life interesting.

I got a bump like that at a party when I was 16 years old. I hit my head on a corner of a table and it swelled up like a lemon on my forehead. My dad was coming to pick me up after I called him and got in trouble for being there. I put ice on my head frantically trying to calm it down before getting into the car with my already livid father. The ice worked pretty well and he never noticed it. He would grounded me for an extra year if he had seen it!

Now I would have never known and just continued thinking it was shadow! It doesn't look bad, but it's too bad that you don't remembered how it happened as it would make the story even better!
