Setting the Scene: I fell off the ladder while I was painting the living room and broke a rib. Fortunately I was only about 4 feet off the ground when I fell. Unfortunately I hit a table on the way down, which is how the rib got broken. The following conversation took place after my ER visit while I was updating Matt on my condition (he was out of town on business).
He Said: So you’re ok? It’s just a broken rib?
She Said: I’m ok. Luckily the floor broke my fall.
He Said: That’s not funny.
She Said: I wasn’t joking.
He Said: Does it hurt a lot?
She Said: Depends.
He Said: Depends on what?
She Said: Which pain scale you’re using. On a scale from “I stubbed my toe” to “I just pushed a baby out of my vagina”?
He Said: I think we use different pain scales.
She Said: I have no doubt.
