Each week, YA Highway hosts Road Trip Wednesday, a blog carnival in which contributors discuss a topic on their blogs and invite readers to do the same.
This Week's Topic:
What is the story of your best scar?
Scars are like memories written in blood. I have a few... not too many which maybe tells its own story of cautiousness.
One brings back my childhood and the family across the road... who later moved around the corner but never really from my life. They had big dogs my whole early childhood. Obedient, well-behaved, good and maybe kinda scary German Shepherds. When I was about 11 they got, of all things, a toy poodle. The thing couldn't have been much bigger than a man's boot. Turned out the thing had brain damage that transformed it into a red-eyed fiend (maybe the eyes were my imagination) and it would leap out at random and attack. One day it got my hand and i was shaking but the thing was like a cartoon, swinging back and forth in the air, not letting go of the webbing between my fingers. It had to be put down not long after. The small mark reminds me not to judge a dog by its size. Ouch!
What do your scars tell you?
