Keri being the incredible wimp that she is, would be in serious trouble if she ever got really hurt. Actually, now that I think about it, I would be the one in trouble. I am the one that would have to listen to her screams of agony.
Let’s talk about REAL pain, which I am sure my princess of a daughter has never experienced. Did she ever fall out of a tree and hit every branch on the way down? No, I think not. I did however, and let me tell you that it hurts. Did she ever fall off a bike and walk home with blood running down her legs from scabbed up knees? I think not. Or better yet, did she ever attempt a back flip and mess up and chip a tooth? No, I think not. (My brother gets that one)
Did she ever ride her bike down a hill and jump off at the bottom into a pile of trash? Ha! No way.
Did she ever jump down a flight of stairs and sprain her ankle and then have her ankle be puffed up for two weeks? No, I think not. Did she ever get a splinter lodged so far in her big toe that a doctor had to pry it out? WITH A NEEDLE! (My older brother was pulling me across a hardwood floor in my socks… BIG mistake) Speaking of big brothers-Did she ever get ran over by her older brother on his bike? Well I did, and that hurts. I would even go so far as to say that it “hurts really bad”. Apparently I decided that it would be fun to stand in his way and refuse to move. He refused to stop. Let me tell you, bike tires across your face……. not good.
Let’s see what else I have. Oh yes, I know. Did she ever have appendicitis and have to have HER appendix removed? Or have her eye blacked, or whack her head on the door frame of the car because she didn’t duck down low enough to get in? No, no, and no!
Where did this come from? Her father is not a wimp. I can't imagine that she gets it from me, that's impossible. While I freely admit to having a low threshold for pain, I have suffered REAL pain. Maybe, just maybe, I MAY have a time or two gone into lengthy detail over an injury, but come on! At least I have some real ones to
I think the kid needs to toughen up, after all, it's not like she has given birth.
