One thought on “05-13-88”

  1. This was the day I fell off a tree and busted my thigh wide open! I was a seven year-old child in North London, UK. The tree had be unearthed during the Great Storm of 1987 (October 15-16th).

    I was climbing the tree, which was in a neighbour’s garden, with two friends. I fell and lost consciousness briefly…on waking, I saw my friends pointing at my thigh with a look of horror on their faces!

    I had 13 butterfly stitches that night…I think the doctor wanted to mark the fact that this occurred on Friday the 13th!


Tell us a story.
