A Care Package for a Hurt Hand
As some of you know, I had a little run-in with the neighbor's dog (let's just say the dog won), worsened by the fact that I ended up spending six hours in the city hospital's ER waiting to get stitched up. Though I'm mostly healed now (it's been a week and two days), a get-well box arrived for me today. Inside it? A mom-made care package, just like the old college days. It contained a few things to keep me busy—a cookbook, a box of organic carrot cake mix, and a Price Is Right board game—but the best part was the customized first aid kit, which, if I know my mom, was made to poke fun at me just a little bit. At least next time we'll have everything we need to tend to household accidents—right down to the manual on how to care for everything from splinters to impalements. Party on!
