About ten years ago I had a consultation with a physician who seemed rather stunned to discover that I had never suffered anything resembling a major physical trauma.
“No broken arms, fingers, lacerations, surgeries?” she asked. Seriously?”
I couldn’t think of any, and those aren’t the sorts of things one is likely to forget. Chalk that up to our sanitized lives and the fact that I have been extraordinarily lucky in so many ways. I also don’t leave the house much.
