"Mom? Are you okay?"
"I guess so."
"That ball hit you really hard in the face."
"It did. It feels really bad."
"I know. Remember when that happened to me those two times?"
"Yeah. Well, whoever threw it, it was just an accident."
"Doesn't it feel like your nose is falling out of your face and that it's stinging on the inside and maybe you can kind of feel your own blood in there? And then your top lip feels all fat and warm but not in a good way? And then right between your eyes it's like when you get hit with a plastic light saber, sort of? I keep my hands up like this now to guard my face. You should try it next time."
