My daughter passed me by- I was at the computer and she needed to get to the sofa in my room, where she had kept her study books.
I heard a scream and looked up from WordPress to see her hobbling on one foot with a foot held in her hands. My questions were unanswered and I was left to assume that perhaps she hit a funny bone and that she had tingles in her toes- is that possible ?
Later when her pain and tingling subsided, I inquired kindly as to what happened. She was calmer now, so she replied, I stubbed my toe.
” So it wasn’t a tingle ?”
” No, it wasn’t ma. Can’t you understand- I stubbed my toe and have probably broken a nail”.
She wouldn’t let me look at her toe, her leg held on the knee of the other leg and head bent over.
Teenagers- you can’t even ask them if it is a tingle or a toe stubbed- they think they know everything and can deal with everything.
