Well, this isn’t supposed to give you ideas, but yeah. I cut myself right in front of my “best” friend, and she didn’t even notice. I swear, she’s so conceited. She was telling me all about her delusional life, and I picked up a paperclip, said “Oh really?” and slashed my arm five times. Then I put the paper clip away, all without her noticing. And I wasn’t caught. Although my other friend saw and grinned at me (she’s a little wacky, but nice). So yes, I have hurt myself in front of others.
