Somebody once told me that I'm a story topper.
Okay, so he told me more than once in a day because I just kept going.
Either way, it turns out that it's true. Not in an intentional "My life is better than yours" kind of way. Moreso in a "Oh I have a similar but different story" kind of way. Or at least that's how it comes out in my head.
If you and I were to be engaged in a conversation, there's a good chance that while you're talking my mind is racing trying to find something relateable to say.
So, you once got stitches? Cool story.
When I was younger I fell down, hit my head, got stitches in my eyebrow. Clifford the dog was the one who helped me out in the office at school. It was book fair day. And don't get me started on how long it took me to get the stitches removed!
I could do this kind of thing for days. Technically, I guess I do. Don't be offended though, I'm not trying to be rude. If anything I'm just an oversharer (if that were a word).
It's not that I think your story is bad. If anything, I LOVE your story and wish you'd tell more. But mostly so that I can delve deeper and talk to you about me some more. In a completely non-narcisstic way. Kinda.
Did I ever tell you about the time I was shot in the head with a bow and arrow? 5 times? Cool. Here's number 6.
