Just a while ago i went on a date with my girlfriend of five years. We RARELY go out (about 3 dates in 5 years :o she is quite the busy person) so we wanted to take advantage of the winter in L.A. Pershing Square with ice skating and going out to eat in a nice restaurant. Then her father (who STILL doesn't like me T_T ) felt like "spending time with her" (she is actually leaving soon, away from her family for the first time, to study and work. I get why he was jelly: she doesnt even spend much time with them!) so she tries to make this work and says "but ima be ice skating, and if you guys REALLY wanna come then you guys should have fun and get on the ice too :p". The dad seemed hesitant and insisted that they will just "watch and chaperone"
... so yeah... i hope you get that she wanted to hang out with them but he was probably just jelly.
But i also thought about them: two middle aged ppl (sorry guys!) ON ICE WITHOUT EXPERIENCE and told her that maybe we can just go watch a movie, which her fam loves to do. She has been looking forward to this and says that they will learn and that we shall leave at 5:30 and be back by 8pm... after about 45 min of this we go late and there is a line...we go and buy the tickets...wait in line to go in the rink now... and i teach her mom and she gets her dad. Her mom just goes around the edges with her hands and i try to help her but to no avail but we chat and kick it XD AND ALL IS GOOD FOR THE FIRST 5 MINS...
I get called to help the dad and as i am on my way HE SLIPS BACKWARD! :O even when holding his daughter (awww :( ) so i see his free arm go behind him out of instinct and what happens? upon landing on the slippery ice, his hand slips and his forearm is what his butt lands on...
Momma asks if he is ok...he screams lowly and staff (who are really good at skating) come to check up on him and he says that he feels fine but needs help getting up. they try to get his arms but the one he landed on hurt and he yelled loudly...THEN HE BEGAN TO SWEAT AND FEEL PAIN. they tried to feel him and noticed HIS ARM WASNT CONNECTED TO THE SOCKET!
after 20 minutes of waiting para's come in and carry him to ambulance and the mom got on with him so we were told to drive to the hospital...5 minutes away...
we get to the car and notice that the GF didn't have the keys -_- so we walked for about 30minutes in Los Angeles' hills on a windy night. she was freezing cold and upset.
We got there got the keys WALKED BACK and drove there...found no parking FOR AN HOUR. waited three hours to be told that they didnt want to do ANYTHING with him (lack of insurance) but out of emergency they took X-RAYS so they gave us those and told us to go to different hospital. we went there and well by then we were hungry but the only open place was a 24 hour McDonalds...so cheeseburgers for all and two sprites while we were waiting. it was terribly cold and i gave my GF all my coverings except shirt and jeans and understuff of course :p and she was....managing....
this hospital is where ALL rejects are sent so we waited 6 hours before they called him in to "see" him...then they lasted 2 hours for surgery.
overall though throughout these 6 hours i was consoling her...telling her how i get what she was trying to do...how she shouln't feel like she gave me a terrible time...how it was not her fault. and how we still technically: ice skated 5 min, took a walk in LA, another walk, drove alone, fed us AND THEM XD, and hung out until the janitor told the people there and us that they were going to take the seats away so that he can mop...they sent us to another lobby room that was already mopped and drying with HUGE fans while she rested and eventually slept on me with all the sweaters. she was loads better. especially after i told her that i recognize that her parents, like me, can't wait to see her and that what happened was not her fault.
Then they found her sleeping on me with her head on my lap but daddy-o was too tired to give a dang. XD
she drove us back but first we stopped at his job to show his boss the cast and everything because he was already supposed to be in at 5AM!
