When I was 13, my younger brother and sister pushed me out of a rope swing and broke my ankle. That day was the first time I cursed out loud.
The worst part was that two weeks later, we had THE biggest snow in my life in South Carolina. Do you know how hard it is to walk in the snow with a trash bag around a cast?
When it was time to remove the cast, I was put in a room with a boy whose cast was shredded and filthy. The doctor came in and surprisingly told the boy all looked well, and sent him off. When he came to me next, he did a double take and asked for my name. My name is unique and somewhat masculine, while the boy was named Ashley. He had confused our charts and was about to tell me I had to keep my cast on!
