Expensive ER Visit

The good news is that G is a perfectly healthy kid. He weighs a whopping 135 pounds and is six feet tall. His thumb is not broken, but was very purple and swollen, necessitating a trip to the ER. The bad news is that someone called him a faggot one too many times. I wonder what price Mom and Dad are going to be paying here for his defending his honour...? I'm guessing about $2,000 because of the high-tech splint and the fact that an x-ray was taken.

  1. That is horrible. I think the other kid deserved it! I hope his thumb heals well.

  4. Yikes! Does this kid like school? I have a particular dislike of that particular term because I know how it originated & the images it conjures up spin my head out really badly. No~one should be called that. Ever.

  5. Memories *tear drop*

    This reminds me of all the times I was called "dyke" at school. Oh, public school, what a beautiful eutopia.

    I dared to have a short haircut. Aim for the nose, G.

  6. Oh yeah, and by the way, I can't spell utopia.

  7. Ouch, I'll bet that hurt. Sure hope the other guy has some damage. Name-calling, especially those kind of names, is so darn hurtful.

  8. Wow! He must have gotten him good! I wonder what the other kid looks like. I'm sorry he had to go through that, but it's good to know that he can stand up for himself, isn't it?

  9. Thanks for all the loving comments!

    And Ganeida, I really struggled about whether to post the whole word or not. But then I thought about the fact that "child molestation" doesn't get star blanks in the news. Why?

    Both words conjure horrible images to the mind. But then I blank out letters to words that rhyme with "duck" because I'm a hypocrite. I don't know.

    I hope that the people who read my blog just hear my heart on that.

  10. I thought there was a "zero tolerance policy" on those kinds of words in public schools. Lame. Lame. Lame.

    Ugh.

    Moving on before I say something not very nice. May this whole situation work out well in the end. Hang in there!

  11. I tell you I went through the fighting with Billy, kids picked on him because he was so much smaller than they were and he was a year older. He had such a temper that if they said something he was right in there scrapping with them. God Love you sweetheart having to go through stuff that you shouldn't have to.
    Hugs,
