I slipped on some ice at work yesterday, and, one trip to urgent care later, am in a leg immobilizer and on crutches for an indeterminate amount of time. Jim came over once we got home.
As he walked into the apartment, Jim greeted me with a smile and said, "Hey, Adom, so I hear from Dorian you hurt your leg things."
"What?" I responded.
"Yeah, he said you hurt 'your 'leg things.'"
Realizing that perhaps there had been a misunderstanding, I clarified. "Ligament. I tore a ligament."
Jim pulled out his phone and retrieved his text messages. "'Adom fell hurt leg things ok.'" He looked back up and grinned. "Punctuation is important."
