Then when I finally got her on the bed, my dad kept tickling the spot behind her knee and making her leg pop up while I was trying to pour hydrogen peroxide on it.
And then we started arguing about about whether or not I should remove the skin flap and clean the whole thing.
I ended up putting woundseal on it and then sticking a little bandaid over it.
My dad says we should mount the icing tip on the wall.
I was cleaning out from under our table in the kitchen and found a package of metal icing tips so I tossed them over my shoulder to pick up later and they landed with the points facing up.
And then a few minutes later my dad and mom came in and mom asked if I wanted a shake while I was under the table, so I said yes and I heard dad point out the icing tips, saying to watch out and not step on them. I thought someone would be intelligent enough to pick them up while I couldn’t get to them.
I was very wrong.
A couple minutes later I hear a yell. I popped my head out from under the table to see half an icing tip embedded in the heel of my mom’s foot and blood dripping down. My dad was shouting, “I told you not to step on it!” while he pulls the icing package out of her foot (the icing tips came in a 4-pack cardboard strip and she got the end tip and the rest of the strip came with it).
My parents being the pinnacle of first-aid awareness, promptly throw a wad of paper towels on the floor for her to press the wound to and then my mom yelled at me to clean the blood off the floor while my dad shoved the icing tips in my face to show the blood line on it.
I told my mom to get on the bed but she said she had to finish the shakes so she threw another wad of paper towels down and limped over to the blender.
And that’s how I spent 10 minutes cracking jokes about having pink icing and blood shakes with my dad while mom bled all over the floor making protein shakes.
Then mom threw a wet paper towel on the floor and started cleaning up blood stains with her wounded foot while I yelled at her to get on the bed again.
MY MOM IS BLEEDING EVERYWHERE

Back shot horrible anatomy doodle of Eram, and the bottom is quick draws of this OC I made a while ago. He’s a little boy when he meets one of the protagonists. After a few events he joins the party and basically idolizes her. After more stuff happens, the protagonist leaves him in a mage sanctuary where he learns magic in a land that prolongs people’s lives but simultaneously accelerates time from the outside. Hard to explain…. He grows quickly, and the next time he sees the protagonist he’s a teenager and somewhat well-versed at magic. He resents the protagonist for leaving him and takes up an apprenticeship under her old master. She feels hurt that he’d go against her, and the master actively tries to set the apprentice against her.
I believe I named him Yuri! He ends up joining one group that splits off from the protagonist because another girl wins in a duel against her and claims leadership. Quite the drama!
@Ian - aww! It’s exciting!! I was so nervous and excited for my first pair, mostly because I had needed them badly for over a year. My mom kept dilly-dallying with the appointment. I ended up spending a year learning how to drive without glasses!!! I couldn’t read street signs or lights or see other cars and bicyclists! EVERY DRIVE WAS A LIFE AND DEATH ADVENTURE. I also ended up crying in my algebra 2 class because I was sat in the back because my last name starts with Z and the teacher wrote small and with a yellow marker and I was so frustrated that I just started silently bawling in the back during the third lesson. I hope you get a really cool pair of glasses!
birdie - O///A///O thank you! I’m glad they don’t look too bad. I’ve got quite a potato face so it’s difficult to find nice glasses. We figured out a rectangular pair with long lenses suits me well! I should draw an avatar of myself with these glasses. It’d be cute, but then when I message people as Eram, they might not recognize me!
My new glasses came in! The top photo is the pair I’ve had since 2008 and the bottom is my new pair! We got non-glare lenses and you can see the difference in the reflections. The prescription changed and it feels really hard to adjust to, but my parents want me to try so they’re confiscating my old pair and forcing me to wear the new ones.
I’m really hoping they don’t look too bad! I wish my hair was a bit cuter today, but I’ll take a photo when it’s styled a little better!
