So I got punched in the face today. Twice. The first punch was a well placed jab right to my face, cutting my lip and bringing back the familiar clicking noise I once had in my jaw whenever I opened and closed my mouth. The second punch wasn't a physical punch, but an emotional one. It was a hook that snuck up out of nowhere and landed right on my jaw. The kind of hook that puts the lights out and it did just that.
My lip and jaw will be all healed in two or three days. I am not so confident about the second punch. I fear I may be injured for the rest of my life.
