    Hmmmmm....sounds like a challenge!!

    Don't know of this is more bizarre, but it did happen!

    Many years ago, when I was about 14, I was out in the garden listening to Wimbledon, on the radio. I was lying in the sun on one of the old fold up beds. Anyway, after a while it was getting rather warm outside, so I thought I'd better get in and out of the sun before I burnt. (This was a couple of years AFTER I'd been on a family holiday to Malta, and burnt my shoulders sooo severely that in the morning, they were a mess of blisters! Cue:Rest of holiday wearing t-shirts and not swimming! But I digress!!!)

    I folded up the bed and started for the back door. As I was dragging the bed along, it jolted and popped out of my grasp. The serated joint ran straight down the back of my calf, and felt like a scratch. I looked and saw a tiny blood drop at my achilles area, and continued on thinking no more.

    Then I got indoors, put the bed away and walked into the kitchen. My mum's yelp told me that something was wrong! There was now a thin red line all down my calf.....so I investigated! I was able to pull apart the skin, from just behind the knee, down to my achilles and get a fresh look at Biology IN ACTION!

    There was the muscle ....There is the achilles tendon .....There is quite a lot of blood!

    Strangely, I didn't go to hospital, because the cut was so fine that it knitted itself back together. I do, however, have a scar to this day, to remind be not to be so stupid again!

    I shall be at BETT 2011 should anyone require the necessary proof of scar!!!!!!
