Bruise on my wife's knee, 23 June 2009.

I swear to you I did not doctor this photo at all.

A couple of years ago, my wife fell down a set of marble steps on our way to a spa (ironically, for a massage), and wound up banging the heck out of her knee. A week or so later, this bruise emerged, and it really was this weird combination of bright yellow and dark red. We marveled at the evolving colors for a couple of days before it wound up looking like this, as perfect a smiley face as any bruise is ever likely to get.

And, painful as her knee was, we both actually did get a laugh out of this. So now it’s official: smileys heal all wounds!

(My wife’s knee is fine, by the way. Just in case anyone was worried.)
