All the news the New York Times "forgot" - to print

Well if your going to break a leg...

...why not break it in three spots?...

Ok, just so you know, I, Tash, am ok. So this post is not going to be about me. My brother however is most likely feeling a little down at the moment due to a little incident this morning.


Three of my sisters and my brother went ice skating this morning at a nearby college arena. All the girls had gone skating before - my brother - had not. But needless to say, learning to skate is not really the same thing as learning to walk a tightrope over a poll of starving crocodiles. And after a few minutes of practice, he quickly was flying around the ice like an experienced skater. (Spins and the works…) Yes, everything was going very swimmingly... Then in his moment of confidence he asked my sister "want to race?"...

"Smash!" - Tibia, Fibula, and Ankle all broken. OucH... You know part of experience is knowing how fast you can go and still stop in time as to not kill yourself by running (shall we say skating?) into things. Especially objects that don't move readily - like walls.

My other sister had been filming some of the skating and she thought she was filming the accident – but however – she forgot to press the right button. Oh well…

So, as far as I have heard, if things go good, he will be out of the hospital Wednesday. Please pray for him. As you could imagine he's in a ton of pain.

Check out this song... (but you have to listen to it while reading this...:)

... Just so you'll will understand, this is where I got the music...

Ouch!!!!!!!!!! I just almost killed myself turning on that song; I had the volume on three. THREE!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT IS so BLASTING LOUD!!!!!!!!! MAN!! THERE SHOULD BE SOME WARNING FOR US POOR PEOPLE! COME ON!! Anyway! Is your mysterious brother having surgery? If he is then comfort him when he thinks of getting sliced up with some equally mysterious unsterilized knife, by telling him to think of the Spartans or the fact that at least he doesn’t need eye surgery, I know this will cheer him up, BUT, yeah, PUT SOME WARNING ON THAT SONG THINGY OR else !...

Hey tell your bro. were praying for him. Ice skating is a great sport, when you know how to stop.

And tell your bro. that my cousin went through the same thing only in his case, a kid kicked him while playing soccer. Needless to say, BJ is now one of the best soccer players in the Mass. area.
