The story

I have no recollection of how this scar happened to me, only what I’ve been told, which is not a lot. 

I was always told it was a burn (I have another one on the opposite side of my thigh). I don’t know what type of burn, water or fire. So, I ask my mum again through my sister. She first said it was from hot water, then I reminded her that I was told it was from traditional medicine. She confirmed it was a burn to make me walk (I became disabled when I was around a year and a half years old) but didn’t elaborate.

I think this was more of my dad’s wanting this than my mum, but he is no longer around to ask. So the mystery continues.

Maybe that’s my next project.
