I believe that I mentioned it here before, but in case I didn't (and in case you didn't know), I shave my head. This becomes a bit tedious at times, but overall, I like the look and I feel like people respond better to me with a shaved head than they do with me just balding.
Now on Tuesday, my sick day, I played a fair amount of PS2, because I'm a nerd like that, and I, at one point, was so disappointed with how I was playing that I took the PS2 controller and hit the edge of the controller up against my forehead. It was a dumb thing to do, and I should have known better, but I didn't hit myself especially hard and so I didn't figure anything bad would come of it. Unfortunately, there is a small divet around the edge of the controller, and this sort of caught my skin, and I am now left with the monument to my stupidity in the form of a crescent shaped scab in the center of my forehead.
I've been telling everybody the truth if they ask about it, but I wanted to ask you, the readers, your opinion. I'm not saying that I would necessarily change my story, but I am curious to see how you would hypothetically respond. Would it save more face if, instead of telling the truth, I claimed that I had cut myself shaving? This would seem a pretty silly blunder, but it would certainly be somewhat less embarrassing than admitting that I had been so upset by a VIDEO GAME that I had mashed the controller against my head.
Also, would it help if I explained that I was playing Madden '06, and I had just thrown an interception that had been run back for a touchdown?
