Fall while playing with your kid and break your elbow.
Yep, A was outside doing dad things with Kidzilla when he fell and broke his elbow. He saw the specialist today and was given a 4 week reprieve from work. It could have been much worse, this break didn't require pins or an actual cast- just a splint and a sling.
It's a heck of a length to go to to get the holidays off, but it seems to have worked.
