Now I have a ton of friends who have never broken a bone in their lives -- which means they've probably never even had an x-ray before. But I, on the other hand, have had several injuries in which x-rays were necessary. In fact, there came a point in my life that the x-ray technicians actually told me that I'd start to GLOW if I had anymore x-rays! (Of course they were kidding, but as a little kid, you believe ridiculous things!)
I've had a lot of x-rays -- about a dozen in my lifetime. I've had x-rays on both ankles, my right knee, both hands (for different fingers), my right arm, my face (for a broken/chipped eye socket) and my mouth (for my wisdom teeth extraction).
I guess you can say that I appreciate x-ray machines (and their technicians) very, very much.
So happy birthday, x-ray machines and x-rays. Without you, I'd likely to be a fragile, fractured and broken mess!
Have you ever had to have an x-ray before? Have you ever broken any bones before?
