Younger boy got his cast off on Wednesday. I took my camera and was going to take a picture, but when I went to turn on the camera, there was no memory card in it (of course). They used a funny little electric cutting knife to cut the cast off. The technician wanted to show us that it wouldn’t cut the skin, so he ran it right against his own palm! I wonder who was the first guinea pig to have to determine if that device would cut skin?!
My son and I thought it was quite amusing how many different times we were told to “sit here”. We counted about 7 different times we moved to another location to “sit here”. Either we were really bored or we are just a couple of big yokels who are easily entertained.
I wish this post was more interesting, but it was all rather anti-climactic. But I’ll post a picture of the “pretty” scar.
For all the word dorks out there…I had to look up anti-climaCtic vs. anti-climatic because I have heard it said both ways, so I wasn’t sure which was correct (although I suspected it needed the extra c, because why would anyone ever mis-pronounce it if it were anti-climatic? know what I mean?)
I thought it was funny to twitter the cast coming off on Wednesday “Cast on 20, Cast off. Guess what it makes. A right arm that can do it’s own danged scribing! Yah! Younger boy’s cast is off! And I am FREE!” Like I said, I thought it was funny, but no one even laughed, so I guess I’m losing my tiny little bit of funny. (Maybe it would’ve been funnier if I’d said cast on 35, which was the correct number…I can just imagine some poor knitter out there following these stupid directions 😉 )
Wow am I glad this post is almost over! I felt a little obligated to post that my son’s arm was free. I mean it kind of seemed like it should be some big event. But how do you get good material out of such a boring (and anti-climaCtic) event?
