    The first object I would say is one of my life’s artifacts would be art supplies. My art supplies are mostly made up of pencils and paints, such as colored pencils, watercolor pencils, oil paints, acrylic paints, and water based paints.

    I saw the ball going low and outside at about 91 mph. I shuffled over, but not quickly enough as the ball caught me right where I did not have padding. I felt the bone dance out of place like a ballerina. I laid there, rolling in agony. After a few seconds the bone shifted back into place and I was yelling in pain.
