It seems like only yesterday we were in the ER with this little guy getting his left arm X-rayed. Oh, right. It was just yesterday.
This past week, I sent him off on a Boy Scout high adventure the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. He’ll be fine, they said. Nothing to worry about, they said.
Wednesday: Mountain biking
Thursday: White water rafting
Friday: Mountain climbing
Friday evening: goofing around in a parking lot with a friend
Now, which of these activities sounds the least likely to result in an ER trip?
The lesson is: when your friend says to jump off a bride, go ahead. No worries. But when your friend tells you to see how fast you can run across a row of parking barriers — you know the ones that are about a foot tall — think twice.
