During a team scrimmage on Wednesday, I took a literal skate to the face.
Noses bleed a lot. Mine is swollen and sore but not broken. My teammates found this all hilarious.
The silver lining: I'm told my boobs look fantastic in these injury photos.
Someone said, "Hey, take photos for her blog!" Despite the pain, I was so proud in so many ways. Callie Ente snapped these pics and then cleaned my blood off the rink. There's derby sister love for real.
