a bruise, by any other cause

Bruises come in all configurations and locations.

This one here, sported by an OR colleague, was obtained while playing wargames, one of the fast becoming popular hobbys some young men in Dumaguete are engaging in. Ronald assured us he didn't mind getting these bruises (he had two more elsewhere) as even the pain is worth the fun he had.

Looking at these bruises though, remind me of other bruises obtained in not so fun ways.

Like double black eyes after frontal craniotomy.

Or the hematoma on my Lola Agre's whole arm after a blood extraction when she was diagnosed to have aplastic anemia.

Or bruises of victims of domestic violence.

Or other equally gruesome etiologies.
