View Full Version : Getting my stitches out!

Mar 2nd, 2005, 03:33 AM
Last week in the tennis comp I played in, I was playing doubles with my new partner... I was serving and hit a great first serve to my opponents backhand and knew it was gonna be a weak return, so I followed my serve to the net and the return was a high floating ball down the middle.. As I was serve volleying I instinctively moved to hit the forehand volley but my partner wanted to be the hero and moved to intercept it with a backhand smash.. anyway all he connected with was my temple and it KILLED!!

Blood started pissing down into my eyes and I realised I had a bad cut! It needed stitches so I had to to the goddam hospital..Its so funny - I played rugby league for 12 years and never needed stitches but the first time I needed them was from a tennis match!

Anyway Im excited cuz it looks like its healed well and I get my stitches out tonight!!! Yippee!!!

No, if it was Cali there likely might have been a stabbing on court to see if he came back a month or so later!!

Just a 1cm stab wound you know.. Nothin too serious!! hehehe ;)
