It's not fun to start the week crippled, but that's what you get when you fall over in your rush to admire a friend's new car. All hail the VHI SwiftCare clinic, where they dealt with it quickly and civilly before inviting me to put my foot into a round cage, off which rolled the coolest compression bandage.
