Julian always gets blogged about…especially with his accidents. Teeth being knocked out, black eye on the first day of baseball practice….and now a big shiner.
Last night we were at church and he collided with his friend Mattie. Mattie’s head landed on Julian’s cheekbone and wah-lah ….a big old shiner. This sucker swelled out like you wouldn’t believe. Everyone told him how cool it was to have the big shiner and how proud he must be. It was all the men saying this to him. Almost like he had passed another rite of passage or something.
I really enjoyed hearing Mattie telling him over and over how sorry he was. Julian would say “It’s okay. I’m still your friend it just hurts reaaaalllly baaad.”
