60. How did you get one of your scars?
The one under my chin was from when I was 5 yrs old. I remember it like yesterday. My parents were remodeling the bathroom and had just put in the new vanity. The marble countertop was a raw edge that was going to be finished the next week. Well I was taking a bath, playing away and I wanted to get the soap on the vanity rather then the soap in the tub. So rather then get out of the tub and take the 2 steps to the sink I crawled over the toilet and went to grab the soap when my wet slippery little body slipped and my chin came down super hard on the counter’s edge right on the bone. I split a 2 inch cut right open and began screaming bloody murder. 4 hours later I had 28 stitches and a new no baths alone policy. My poor mom, she was super scared. I soaked 3 washcloths with blood before we even got to the ER!

See?!?! I KNEW you'd like Sara Bareilles!! Too bad you didn't get to hear here before her record deal. I think the new album is not so good. They made her sound too pop. Ugh. She was perfect before, kinda Folk and Blues on the piano/keyboard. Sigh.
