“You should see the other guy.”
That’s what I told him he should say to people that ask what happened. The real story is that he got in the way of a classmate’s tennis back swing in PE. It happened yesterday morning and is just now starting to bruise so he’s on his way to sporting his first shiner. Thankfully the gash just under his eyebrow could be held together with a butterfly bandage and no stitches were needed.
He has PE again tomorrow. We may need to say some prayers he doesn’t come home with a matching gash on the other eye.
