The Bar Stool Story

I have a funny story. Well, it's not actually funny, but it's a story...when I was young my family lived in Texas. I was young enough that I don't remember a whole lot about the house we lived in other than it had bar stools. One night I was playing on the bar stool and I fell off. On the way down, I hit my chin on the bar. I just remember lots of blood everywhere. I was rushed to the emergency room by my mother were they stitched me up and sent us on our way. As the wound healed and turned into a scar, I remember my mother's concerns that it's location would change over time and I'd have a scar on my face as I grew older. Thankfully it stopped just right under my chin where it can vaguely be seen today. When my hubby and I first started dating, I remember one night I we were lying on the couch watching television and I noticed a scar on his chin. We have the exact same scar in the exact same place. We both fell off bar stools.
