Six days ago I leaned over the back of the front seat and reached down to retrieve a book from the door pocket. It was a stretch and just as my fingertips touched the item they sought I heard the *snap* and knew instantly that I had cracked a rib.
It hurts more today than it did six days ago. What did the doctor say? I will tell you what he said. I broke two ribs fifty-one years ago and went to the doctor who told me they would eventually heal, take two tylenol when the pain is too much to bear without them. He charged me for the advice.
So certainly I did not go to the doctor this time. Who said I don't learn from experience?
I am old and apparently brittle but I am not stupid.
You may laugh now; excuse me if I don't join in.
