I had a green stick fracture from roller skating down a steep hill. My brakes weren't working so I used the back of a car to stop myself but I was going too fast. The shock of it went up my arm and I couldn't really move it. I was in kindergarten at the time. My parents said I should've been a boy with all the trouble I got myself into. They were really concerned but I couldn't write for a whole month in kindergarten yay!! so no homework!
I even had a mini skateboard which I managed to jump down a couple of stairs with, yup, so don't be fooled by the skirt I'm wearing. Was such a tomboy. Even played football with the boys in the neighbourhood but aside from my speed which was beneficial to my team, they didn't want me to play with them coz "I was a girl" *eyes rolling* ;)
I don't know if it's just me but when I was a kid, everything seemed larger. For eg, I went back to my primary school as a teenager and I was really surprised. I stood at the edge of the school field which had so many memories for me from playing catching with my friends to competing in Sports Day. I remembered our field being HUGE but it wasn't at all! ;)
Age is another funny thing. If you were 10 and someone was 14, BIG difference. If you were 14 and someone was 20, even BIGGER difference coz you're the kid and the 20 year old is already grown up to you. Once you're in your twenties, the difference between 22 or 26 isn't a big deal, same when you're in your thirties or forties. Age becomes just a number.
