Built this dope little jump, always wanted to do back flips into the lake.
The very first time I used it. I dig a head first scorpion underwater.
Pretty sure I landed on a rake or something?
Every 2 inches something pierced me, from the top of my dome, right down my face.
What ever it was, was long enough to pierce through my nose, then bust the top of one of my front teeth, then continue right into my nasal cavity.
When I sneezed, the air pressure would push air into where the root of my tooth used to be.
Take a guess, think that hurts?
They did a shit ass job cleaning it at the hospital.
When I woke up the next day
Both my eyes were swollen shut, I didn't know what the fuck to do.
I fumbled around until I could find a metal spoon, had to be my own corner man for this round.
Worked the blood out exactly how a corner man would.
My neighbor told me to put a warm wet cloth on it, well...
When I took the cloth off all the scabs came off.
What happened next, was one of the nastiest things I've ever seen
It was like someone was pouring a picture off beer on my head
But it wasn't beer, it was pus.
You have no idea.
One of the gashes on my dome turned into an abscess, bigger than a quarter. It was rotting, I could smell it, the sides were collapsing & it was growing. How you doing ladies.
all together, lost three teeth, 40 plus stitches, compressed a couple disks in my neck & left the jump there.
I brought a full face goalie face mask, I wore the very first jump, that was it.
I was nailing back flips all day, then some stupid kid asked if I could do a front flip.
That was my only attempt at one. Weak.
