Weird thing I remember from my childhood... I was 6 or 7... my dad had gotten a V after my baby sister was born. The stiches tore and he almost bled to death. This was back when the short OP shorts were really popular with guys and he was wearing white ones when it started (every girls period nightmare I'm sure). My mom barely got him to the ER in time. Another random thing is that my dad is immune to novacaine and all the other numbing drugs. I honestly can't believe he went through with the surgery! I guess four kids was enough to make him do it though.
