Here is another old one while I am out of town….
So, people come in with bizarre stories but this one was really out there. A 40ish year old guy came in last summer with a cut in the roof of his mouth. It was fairly large so I was curious as to what could have caused it. He said that while he works on his car (which is parked out in is backyard), he likes to periodically do some archery. He has a target set up near the car and takes a few shots to break up the monotony of changing the oil or whatever he was doing with the car. The really weird part was that he said he likes to keep an ARROW IN HIS MOUTH while he works on the car (much like someone who keeps a pen in their mouth while sitting at the computer). Of course you can see where this is going….. He trips and falls and of course the sharp point of the arrow pierces the roof of his mouth. Luckily he had only superficial damage to his palate. His discharge instructions included something I have never written before: “Do not place the tip of an arrow in your mouth”.
