Glass

Today, my mom and I spent the entire day running errands, and shopping. We had a small lunch, then went out to dinner. We went to TGI  Friday’s in Robinson. I got into the booth how I always get into the booth, by sliding into the booth like a child, then I felt like something in my leg. I thought it was a splinter, or piece of wood or something. I swung my leg around, and saw that there was a piece of something in my leg. It didn’t dawn on me, until I pulled it out of my leg, but it was glass. I had a piece of glass stuck in my leg. I said, “Oh my God, glass.” My mom said, “What do you mean, glass?” I said, “Mom I had glass in my leg.” I didn’t feel pain, when I took the glass out of my leg, but I pulled up my jeans and saw the blood coming down my leg. I got up from the booth and went to the hostess station. The hostess ran to get the manager. The manager escorted me to the back office, where we had to fill out insurance paperwork, so I don’t sue them obviously. He gave me some wipes, and a band aid. The manager said that our bill would be on him tonight, and he is very sorry for all this. I told him that it was okay, and that I did plan on going to med express after dinner to make sure all is well. He said, “Definitely do that.”

When I got back to the table, I noticed my leg would burn off and on, and I couldn’t believe this was happening.  I kind of thought it was funny. We had a great dinner! I called Andrew and told him what happened. He was shocked and so worried. I told him that I was going to go to MedExpress after dinner, and he said definitely do that and to let him know, what they say. When we finished dinner, we went to med express. They numbed my leg with a needle in two places, and dug around inside the wood for glass, and then bandaged me up with a sterry strip, and a Band-Aid. No stitches thankfully!

When we left Medexpress, I went back home to Moon, but I stopped for a 6 pack of Coors light, and Band-Aids, before going home. Once I got home, I texted drew that I was home safe, and on the couch resting. He was happy to hear all went well and was excited to see me tomorrow! I couldn’t wait to see him. He was in Orlando for the IBM Vision Conference.
