#1 Tampons, while useful for staunching a broken nose that's bleeding, are not glamorous at all. In 2010, my nose was broken in a jam, and would not stop bleeding all over the floor. Eventually, one of my teammates gave me a tampon to put up my nose. "Are you serious? I thought that only happened in movies!" Well, the first tampon didn't fit, and I had to find someone who had "slim fit" tampons. After practice, my friends took me out to dinner and I then fully realized that "tampon chic" hadn't caught on as nasal adornment.
|You checkin' me out, or you just admiring my nose bling?|
|Aw, isn't it cute! Give it six months and it might be your worst nightmare.|
|I feel like I was a scratching post!|
#4 Pennies can really derail your skating routine. Pennies, Skittles, washers, all of these things lurk on skating rink floors and can be unexpectedly disruptive to skating. I mean, LOOK at a penny, how bad can it be to skate over? The first time I hit a penny on the rink floor, I swore I had skated over a pencil, or maybe a two by four. How chagrined was I when I actually found the penny that had practically sent me head over wheels.
|Abraham Lincoln hates skaters.|
|I often look for shapes in my bruises, like the clouds!|
|Ok, maybe I'm ignoring him because I don't want to cook dinner.|
