KO: Broken navicular and talus. You can look that up and send me a Google treatment plan.
Me: Talus sounds like an STD. Is there something you aren't telling me?
KO: It's in the same STD family as clematis and shimera.
Note: Every time I mention my clematis vine, my sister makes a disparaging remark about the word clematis, suggesting that I live a less than clean lifestyle. And shimera is a brand of undies carried by Nordstrom that I have been known to both purchase and disparage.
Here's hoping that the good-humored KO gets a decent doctor and the repairs necessary to take those new shoes in her closet for a spin.
