My mother came back from x-rays on her knee and it seems as though the broken kneecap is fixed. This has several positive implications. Not only does she not have to wear the brace anymore, she can now bend her knee (though not completely yet) and even start putting pressure on it. This means she can also start doing weight-bearing exercises and start rehabbing the hip.
She also told me that Sunday night was Kushner’s fundraising concert featuring Neil Sedaka. This would explain why so many teenagers were unsupervised and open to mischief.
Actually it does give me an idea. As a nice middah k’negged middah punishment, how about forcing the students to go to another Sedaka concert?
Or would that constitute cruel and unusual punishment?
