For those of you that know Mapachi, real name Patrick, this is news about my geo-buddy!
Apparently he was injured while calling a lifeline this afternoon (me) and tripped over a six inch tall clump of grass that was negligently, willfully, wantonly ignored by the cache placer in total disregard of said grass's potential to cause serious bodily injury, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium and of course the inability to cache without having a to employ a caching surrogate to sign logs.
My initial assessment of damages is that they are somewhat less then one might expect due to the fact that it was the left wrist that was fractured and of course Pat is so far from the "left" that no claim for pain and suffering could ever be supported by the facts.
So open reduction is scheduled for Monday and I will be scrubbing up with the surgical team posing as a "para-nurse" to insure he doesn't incur any furthur impairment at the hands of the ob/gyn doctor who volunteered to do the surgery. Apparently the present recession is affecting the medical profession and they too are "cross-training" and trying different procedures to make ends meet! Hope it's a boy, Pat!
(Seriously, he did break his wrist caching!)
