First off, before you even ask…NO!! The title of this blog post is not designed to be clickbait or deceiving in any way. I mean this in the most literal sense. Get ready for a new side of me you’ve never seen before. It’s me, stripped down to my true essence. No pretenses. No pretending. I’m pretty much showing you the deepest part of myself. Literally.
Are you ready? Are you sure you can handle it? I mean, I don’t want to induce heart attacks or anything…
By now, you’re probably wondering about those MRI scans above — pretty random, I know! You might even be thinking, “What the even heck? Who’s are those? Is this blog turning creepy or what?”
Well, friends, those are my medical scans! That’s me — in the flesh. Well, deeper than flesh, I suppose. I’ve talked a lot about my sexy brain in the past and when I found these old scans in the closet a couple months ago, I couldn’t resist sharing them with you. They’re from 2001 when I was a wee lass of just 19. Also, bonus points if you can spot all my hardware! I’ve got lots of titanium rods in my spine!!
And yes, only I would tape them to the window when photographing them — you know, for optimal sun! I figure you have to see all the crevices of my brain. Now, I’m not sure what I should do with them. They’ve been taking up space in my room, but it’d feel sort of weird to just throw them away, you know? I mean, they’re a part of me, after all. Maybe I should save them and autograph them when my someday-memoir comes out? Is that odd? I’m kidding — well, only half kidding, really. If I talk about my brain surgery in my book, I could be an awesome promotional tie-in. I doubt any author has done something like that before! Oooooh, I’m calling dibs now!
Please tell me I’m not the only one who has random medical scans of themselves lying around the house. Do you, friends? And, yes, I’m aware that this is probably the weirdest question I’ve ever asked on this blog… xoxo
