243. infant suicide attempt

when i was four weeks old, i and the baby scale i was squirming in, mysteriously tumbled off the table top to the floor below, creating concern when a bump the size of a small grapefruit bubbled up from my hairless skull.
when confronted by a probing emergency room staff, mom told them she suspected it was the result of a failed infant suicide attempt.
funny thing is, i don’t recall being depressed at the time.
