'Another Selfie, I Gave Myself a Nose Job'

I must be stuck on myself, here's another 'selfie-story' for others to hear. The photo is a profession, by 'Kharla's Photography Studio' LOL At eighteen years old, I had a boyfriend by the name of Bruce. He had a bad habit of calling our family home, all hours of the night. Once he called to talk to me, at about 2:00A in the morning! To keep the call from waking my parents up, I rushed across the living room in the dark, to answer the phone. Little did I realize, their was a footstool between me and the phone! Down I fell face first, on the edge of an antique cedar chest beneath our picture window. Yup, you guessed it, my nose was badly broken and the pain was almost unbearable. Mom rushed to my aid in a little while, with a zip bag filled with ice. Did Bruce finally get ahold of his girlfriend? I really don't remember if he did or not:(

That's terrible, so you ended up in the line of fire! Mine was never set, it's crooked but normal, as far as I'm concerned.

The nose is pretty darn tender, especially when it takes a hard blow, from hitting solid wood.

I broke my nose when I was 25 when I did a drunken face plant. I was so drunk I couldn't walk myself out to the car, and a guy at the bar offered to give me a piggy back ride. He tripped on the way across the parking lot, and down I went, face first onto the concrete. I also had a concussion. That was not one of my better moments in life, that's for sure. I behaved very badly that night and I'm not proud of it. I guess I got what I deserved.

I had a similar incident happen, I was drunk at a party. Two friends tried to load me into a car. When they let go of me to open the car door, I toppled over face first, into the concrete driveway! The next day, I looked like a semi had run over me head!

@kobesbuddy That's how I looked, too! I looked like someone had beat the daylights out of me. Everyone thought my boyfriend had beat me up, but nope, I did that to myself! I don't drink anymore. It's better that way.
