:: El Hombre Had An Accidente ::

I got the call Saturday afternoon that my brother was in the emergency room being casted for a broken ankle. Dork. When I asked for the full story my mom said that Scotty had a few hours to kill before his job interview with Quicksilver so he headed down to Laguna for a little skim session. While skimming the shore breaks at Thalia, he hit the skim wrong and the board came up from under him, causing Scott to slip and land with his right ankle folded beneath him. Ouch!

Poor kid will be out of commission for 8-12 weeks. That's pretty much his entire summer vacation. He's also supposed to be leaving for Hawaii in a couple days, a trip he might not be able to go on anymore. AND, he was supposed to start Lacrosse camp the week after that. Poor kid.

But don't worry, the story has a happy ending. After being casted he got a ride to his job interview. We were all pretty sure he wouldn't be offered the position with a freshly casted leg. But to our surprise, HE GOT THE JOB! Way to go Scotty! Now all you have to do is heal that bad boy so you can start making mucho dinero. PS- Shave that dirty mexi stache please.

So I'm sure the Quicksilver people were pretty impressed that he still came to his job interview, cast and all! If that doesn't prove how dedicated you are, what does??? BTW - that cast is HUGE! And Brendan sports that mexi stache every so often too - what's with that?? hahahahaha!
