S/O to your itch spoon.
The first thing all cast wearers remember: how much of a complete struggle taking a bath or shower suddenly became.
Remember? You weren't allowed to get the cast wet, like, at all.
So you had to get a little creative with plastic bags...
If you were lucky, you got a lil' shower seat to sit on.
Everyone was always wanting to sign your cast.
Which was mostly cool, but...
Since everyone was always touching it, your cast got pretty gross fast.
Also, someone would inevitably draw a dick on it.
You were itchy ALL. THE. TIME.
And if you didn't have your handy-dandy itch spoon, you don't know what you would have done.
Sure, sometimes you got special treatment...
Especially at school.
...and you did your best to milk it.

There were a few perks, like having a real reason to ride around on the mall scooters.
Though TBH they always ended up being more of a hassle.
Even if your friends had good intentions, sometimes they just made everything worse.
"Please, guys, honestly don't give me a hand."
Nothing was worse than being told to stay off your feet for a "few" weeks...
You and daytime TV/video games got to know each other reaaaaal well.
Except trying to write with a cast on your dominant hand.
Everyone was always asking to try out your crutches and do cool tricks with them...
Even though yours were the best.
And you lost count of how many times you had to explain ~what happened~.
Them: "Did you jump out of a plane or something ha ha?"
You: "dId yOu jUmP oUt oF a pLaNe?"
And at the end, when it was time to take the cast off, you definitely got a tiny bit scared.
Um, sorry, but this saw is going to go WHERE?
