1986.07

Groton, Massachusetts. The family lawn mower hit a small piece of slate lying in the grass, which shattered and flew out the back of the mower. One shard hit my right thigh, causing a small bruise, and another cut deeply into my left leg. The last time I will mow a lawn while wearing shorts.

The incident left a small, visible indentation on the outside of my left calf.
