Boomerang scar — how cool is that?

When Holden is an older kid trading stories, he can tell the one about how he has a cool scar above his right ear from when a dog bit him. And it will probably be safely hidden under all his curls the rest of the time.

Now, I’m still watching it carefully and oozing on Neosporin to keep away infection, but it’s looking pretty good, just like a fresh pink little boomerang on its way to healing.
