we feel lucky when we wake up

Earlier this week I snow tubed right into some kind of prickly thorn bush. I hit the bush and then flipped over backwards landing face down. I was covered with cuts and scratches. My hands and lower arms looked the worst, but my face wasn't much better. I had a bunch of cuts on my forehead and near my right eye as well as a hideous bruise on my cheek.

The next day my professor asked me to meet him at his office after class so I cold pick up my project. This made sense because I had missed the two previous classes. He asked if I was okay, I told him I was and explained my snow tubing accident. I could tell he did not believe me. Before I left he reminded me that I had his cell phone number and I shouldn't hesitate to use it.

I couldn't tell if he thought someone was abusing me, or if he thought that I cut the shit out of myself, or if he thought something else entirely. The whole thing made me very uncomfortable, and I'm kind of dreading his class on monday.

What do you think he thought really happened to me? Is there anything I can do to make our next encounter less awkward? He is my favorite professor and I don't want to feel weird around him.
