In gym class we were doing sumo. We were trying to push our opponent out of the ring. Jared and I decided to be partners. The first time we did it, it was fine. I was quick to act and easily pushed Jared out of the ring. The second time however, wasn't so great. Jared pushed me almost to the edge. I tried twisting him around and tried forcing him to step out of the ring first. Instead my elbow hit the ground first. While we fell out of the ring, Jared fell on my left foot. It hurt incredibly bad. I was wincing in pain and rolling on the ground. I think I know now how football players feel when they get injured on the football field.
My Gym teacher then called the nurse, while I waited outside. It seemed to take forever for her to come. Eventually my gym teacher just wheeled me down in a roley chair. From the nurse's office I went to dad's work since mom currently was out of town discussing matters about grad school. My foot was swelling up and it hurt to put any pressure on it.
After watching Toy Story 2, (basically the only thing they had) I went to Sam's house. Sam unfortunately was not there because he was at all county orchestra. Sam has currently broken a toe. Please do not think I was trying to copy him. Sam's dad is a surgeon who took a look at my foot. He recommended it be X-rayed.
We then took my sisters home and went off to the emergency room. It didn't take long to wait for a doctor to take the X-ray or for the doctors to wheel me off to a room. It was then the time we had to wait. My mother and I passed the time away by taking pictures of my foot. Kind of weird I guess. The doctor kind of walked in at an awkward time. I don't think we left a very good impression. I mean, who takes pictures of feet?
It turns out that there was no break but a lot of strain on my foot or in other words it was almost broken. They gave me a soft cast and some crutches. Honestly I think I look ridiculous with crutches. Crutches are extremely annoying and this cast is really painful. I really want to move my ankle around but this cast doesn't let me. Moral of the story "Fear the sumo"!!!!
