My Mommy Broke Herself!
I can’t believe it. She was riding a bicycle in our neighborhood (our own neighborhood! I trusted that neighborhood, and it has repaid me thus.) when she fell. She broke her collarbone, and maybe some other stuff. And she can’t use her right hand! So she has to type one-handed. Which makes for. Very. Short messages.
So, for the next six to eight weeks, she’ll be of limited abilities.
Just–and wouldn’t you know it–just when her shot at the majors opened up, she’ll be sitting on the bench. Still, though, the rookie card’ll be worth lots someday.
