Yeah, uh ... My sister got hit by a car last night while she was on her bike. She got taken to the emergency room, but she is now walking around cheerfully and, at my stepdad's behest, responding to comments about her visible bruises with "You should see the other guy." (On her own initiative, however, she added, "because I didn't!") I've been persuaded I didn't want to see the bump on her forehead hidden nder a bandaid.1 When briefly met with them today, she was wearing $20 reading-glasses they got at CVS, because hers, well, I don't even need to say anything.
I've been sick this past week. I seem to be getting better, though, in part because of advice my mom gave which hadn't occurred to me before.
Hm. The full impact of my sister's accident seems not to be really hitting me, emotionally speaking. I guess I'm just exhausted from the sickness, and relieved that she's doing as well as she is. I dunno. It seems like it's almost a tasteless punchline to mention that I finally got the first two volumes of Scott Pilgrim from her when we met today, and a box of choclates from my crazy uncle in Hawaii. (And another $25 from my aunt a while ago, but I hadn't mentioned that on my blog yet.)
1"On her Third Eye?" as my mom whimsically remarked.
