Ok! Most of you know the story of Humpty-Dumpty. Yeah,yeah,yeah.Humpty-Dumpty sat on a wall,Humpty-Dumpty had a great fall.Well I'm Humpty-Dumpty. I didnt just fall some old wall. The truth is, I was at my best friends birthday party.One ofmy schoolmates, that I wasn'tvery fond of, pushed me. i had a concussion that day. Not only did i have a concussion in my head,but I also broke my knee,right shin,left arm,nose and my neck. The part about all the kings men couldn't put me back together-well I wouldn-tlet them. I said, ''Leave me alone. I want a professional to put me back together.''I'm still wearing the neck brace. Well, (sigh) I just wanted the worldto know the ''true'' story of Humpty-Dumpty.
