|throwing the boomerang|
Robin also gave it a go. Her arm was not quite so good and a wonky throw went very high. Will tried to catch it but the boomerang got him in the forehead. uh oh! Lots of blood. uh oh!
Let's take a look. About 2 cm long. uh oh! It is deep. uh oh! You need stitches kiddo. uh oh!
We asked a nearby dog-walker where the medical center was and he was very nice to walk us there. Thank goodness it was just 1 block from the park. When the receptionist saw the blood, she took Will right to the surgery.
The Russian surgeon and the nurse made various boomerang jokes. "Good thing it wasn't a tomahawk! You see, in your country it would be a tomahawk. Ha ha!" said the russian doctor. I wasn't amused but made a 'hm' noise so he would cease this joke.
The Dr's accent was a bit thick and due some misunderstandings he ended up giving Will some thing like 7 injections of local anesthetic. So when the actual sewing up started, Will hardly felt a thing. The cut went all the way to bone so he will have these two stitches and the surgical strips on for 1 week.
So now Will gets a scar with a pretty cool story whether he choose to say that the scar was from Voldemort or from a boomerang.
I'm also thinking that when they teach you how to throw a boomerang, they should also teach you how to catch it!
[Will] Nana, if you are reading this. I'm feeling fine.
