Did She Attempt the Pamchenko?

by Alexa on January 9, 2013

{Yes, my site was down AGAIN Monday night. The good news is that it is back up, and after being moved to a whole new server last night, should remain that way. Forever and ever Amen.}

Over the holidays, one of Simone’s teachers broke her leg while ice skating. At least, I assume that was the extent of her injuries. It is hard to be certain, as Simone’s version of events is slightly different.

Here, let’s ask her about it:

Well! You can imagine how upsetting that must have been for Summer.

(Her LEG BONE!)
(I particularly enjoyed the little movement made to indicate ice skating.)

Yes, to my considerable consternation, the very first thing Simone told me after returning from her first day back at school was that Summer hadn’t been there because, and I quote: “Her leg broke off. It just got OFF, while she was skating.” Slightly different phrasing from that in the video, but you can see that the message has remained consistent.

I tried to convince her that while Summer may indeed have broken her leg, it was very unlikely that she had broken it off, but Simone became exasperated at my naïveté, and so I let it drop.
