Meego had the day off on Monday for President's Day. He celebrated by puncturing his hand with a piece of fence post.
The way I understand it, he was playing tag with the other street urchins when he went to scale a fence a la parkour? But i guess there was a big old piece of wood sticking out of the thing he grabbed, and the big old piece of wood went into his hand.
He came inside to wash it off and showed me where it went in. Then he turned his hand over and showed me where it went out the other side. Eew!
Really not that bad though. I patched him up, and he was sort of the one-handed boy for a couple of days, but none the worse for wear after that. In fact, I was going to post gory pics here, but it's just not gory enough anymore to make an impact.
And Magnum took the opportunity to remind me that I am way overdue for a tetanus shot.
I still am, by the way.
Also this week, we had an appointment with the Heavenly Orthodontist. It's time for the braces to commence bracing. They gave him this for motivation.
So now he's totally thrilled. Not.
But enough about Meego, this is MY blog!
School continues, I'm enjoying my classes and classmates, and I haven't been kicked out yet. Also, this was another P.E.O. week and I'm grateful to have found a good group of sistahs. All these weeks floating along as the beloved newbie guest are soon to be a thing of the past, though, as I sense they are about to put me to work.
In movie news, Magnum and I watched Let the Right One In. It's creepy. I think it was well-done for what the producers set out to do, and there were things about it that I liked. But I was kinda creeped out afterwards and so have mixed reviews.
But go ahead and [click this link] and watch the trailer! I DARE YOU!!
