We were asked to get in a single file line. My friends and I were always pushing and shoving one another. That’s how boys played in first grade.
A friend of mine cut in front of me in line. I couldn’t allow that to happen so I pushed him. At that same point in time, a kid was turned around facing this friend who cut in line. I had pushed him so hard that his head snapped back and his mouth opened. Crunch. His two front teeth slammed into the forehead of the boy facing him.
One push led to 14 stitches, 2 weeks detention, and a story I would never forget.
