Insult is not always worse than injury

It’s OK, You Can Drive

So, my mom-in-law refused to fly, so if she came down from New Jersey to visit, it meant we had gone up to get her.

We would split the driving, usually.

Of course, one trip, someone decided to load some extra stuff in the car. As she wandered out of the house with a blanket and some pillows, she missed the edge of the step. (“Down goes Frazier!”)

Now, it’s officially a “road trip”.

Off to the ER we go. It’s just a sprain. Whew. She didn’t have to do too much paperwork because they found her in their records. Sad.

I did all the driving, while someone sat in the back with her feet up.

As Long as You’re Doing X-rays

We went to San Francisco a few years back – I had a conference, she wanted to see the City by the Bay.

In the middle of the night, she went to the bathroom and managed to kick the chair that I had left three millimeters out from the desk.

When we got home, we went to have it checked, since she was convinced something was broken.

While they were doing the X-ray, she asked if they could do the other foot, since she had injured it before we left for the West Coast.
