oh I hope this doesn’t affect your income!
Sigh. It will. He’ll be put on worker’s comp, which will cut down his income a bit, plus he can’t do the extra work he’s been doing and on top of that I can’t work because Alex can’t do a whole lot by himself.
For those wondering, Alex was asked to do something during work which he hasn’t done in over a decade (jumping off a 7 foot stand onto the teeter board) and he managed to rip his calf muscle doing that. According to an orthopedic doctor, it means at least 8 weeks off work, which is a freaking long time if you’re a professional athlete.
Yeah, fun times. I try not to believe in bad luck or bad omens, but it really seems like odd leg injuries are the go-to injury at the moment - a horse fell and will be off work for three months, my puppy fell off the bed and limped horribly for a few days, a teenaged girl from Matvey’s school dislocated her knee dancing around … this shit better pass by quickly.
Ok, I’m starting to make money. This might not be so bad. I don’t mind the selling part and I freaking love inventory (i probably should just go ahead and become a bookkeeper). What I hate is packing away and locking up the shit every night, but Alex helps with that so it’s not all that bad either. I can do this.
