The Scar On My Pinkie


When I was 2 or 3 I was visiting family in NJ.  I was a clueless child and didn't know about the strange contraption in my uncle's basement.  I was watching it and thought What would happen if I stuck my finger in that spinning belt?  Being the stupid child that I was,  I stuck my finger in the spinning belt.  It hurt a lot.  My mom later told me that it would have been better for me to get stitches.  I didn't and so now I have a large triangular scar on my pinkie.    I also later learned that the strange machine in my uncle's basement was a treadmill.
