Will a dent come out of your head???

About two months ago I dented my forehead.  I was in a hurry and whacked my head on my car door. I do believe I saw some stars, and it hurt like a mother effer.  Surprisingly it didn’t bleed, and I thought for sure I would have a gusher on my hands.  No bump just a small bruise for a few days and a red line.

I didn’t notice the dent until I saw a photo of myself recently. I wear glasses and have really poor vision. But jesus, a dent in my head??? It looks like someone pressed their finger down and it stayed that way. I look like I got into a bar fight, and got the crap beat out of me. I know scars add character, but I do believe I have filled my quotient.

Should I be worried? I’ve never had a dent before.  Is this what it truly means to be old?? Hell, I’m only 56, and was dent free prior to this.  Sure I have some pox marks on my forehead from when I had chicken pox as a kid, but I wear bangs so you really can’t see them.  But this dent is huge. WTF!?!?!?!

If anyone knows of how I can get rid of it, please let me know. Maybe I could try some Silly Putty as filler. Dented forehead 2-5-15 Do they make flesh colored spackle?

Made it this far now what??

65 or 25, good words to live by!

The great thing about social media is that people connect with that mind not with a preconceived idea of who you are from an outside wrapper.

My era was one of once you are forty you might as well be dead. Well we hit forty and we figured that fifty was ancient. Fifty came and went and well now Seventy is the new thirty. Yea dream on. The best thing that you can do in life is just hold on. Do the best you can with the time you have. Want to travel? What are you waiting for? Retirement?? Hell do that stuff while all the equipment still works. It doesn’t last forever you know.
