was outside roller blading today. He fell and smashed, and I do mean smashed, his face into the curb. Lora came running in on roller blades, to tell me he fell. Actually, it was more like a yell. I look outside and Cassie is helping the Bleeding Wonder up the driveway. It was one of those....what is bleeding really deals. So, after a cold paper towel pressure and clean up, I was able to establish that he split the outside of his lip. After a quick call to the dr to be sure he didn't need to get a stitch or 2 put in his lip, he was fairly chilled. He actually kept ice on it for about 30 minutes. Then he told me he was reclining on the couch to keep the blood in his face. He has a small bit of road rash on his face and knee. All said he is fine all things considered, with the exception of a fat lip the likes of which I haven't seen before. I had no clue lips could do that. It's like a botox treatment gone wrong.
Here is my favorite part. I was telling my mom about it. She says, "Didn't he have a helmet on?" To which I tell her he doesn't have one. Then she proceeds to tell me how unsafe those things are. My response was..."Mom, you used to let us roller skate down our dead end hill into a fence?!" After a chuckle, she tried to tell me those skates were different. I'm not sure I get it. This must be one of those...remember way back when we used to.....and survived...now it will kill you......thingys'
