Getting injured is part of the sports experience. It makes it more real, tangible and memorable or maybe that's just me. It wasn't a major injury so I can gladly celebrate...but my mom freaked out, like moms always do :). This is why I never tell my parents if I get minor bruises and scratches since parents usually worry too much! but my sister let it slip.
And it's a little embarrassing since no one expects to get hit in the face at field hockey and yes, everyone saw.
This is what it kinda looked like in the morning, though it's not as prominent like the picture below. It wasn't that noticeable after I got hit but last night, my sister asked where I got the pink eyeshadow from, since I don't own any! Hell, I don't even have proper eyeshadow. I usually steal hers! That's what sisters are for, right? Anyway, that's when I told her I got hit in the eye with the ball. Her reaction? "Oh my God, you loser!" ;) The "loser" is her emphasizing her concern.
