No major scars but my nose is broken

Image
I really do not have a "fun" scar. I have little ones here and there, but it isn't anything to write home about. It isn't that I am not a huge klutz, I just have been lucky in the scarring department. However, I have broken my nose...twice.
Busted Nose How does one break their nose twice? Very carefully. I do not have some harrowing abuse story. I cannot claim it is from a car accident. I'm just "talented." The first time I broke my nose it was the summer between sixth and seventh grade. I was playing softball. I had ALWAYS wanted to play catcher, but my coaches always thought I wouldn't be good enough and I was banished to right field. I wasn't a great softball player. My depth perception helped me be an abysmal hitter. I probably would have been a better fielder had they not put me in the outfield.

Unfortunately, I have become one of those smartphone people.My life is on my phone. My calendar, contacts, e-mail, and more are on my phone. I have no issues about going a few hours with out it. There are places where being on your phone is inappropriate. One of my biggest pet peeves is when people think they are too important or just plan refuse to shut of their cell phones.



I did have to go without my phone, sort of, for part of a day. Honestly, I would not have been a big deal at all on any given day. Had my cell phone broken while I was at work, I would have just put it in my purse. I could go to the Sprint store after work and get it replaced. Nothing was really that pressing that I had to get it replaced NOW. Yes, it is my only phone line, so getting it replaced was a priority, but I would not have panicked.



I was at a conference in downtown Chicago. My bo…
