Why can't my kids just play checkers?

I looked outside my window today to see my boys happily playing in the front yard.

Just made me smile.

That is, until I saw Nick invent a new game of "launch yourself with crutches while wearing roller blades"...

This is why I have come to the conclusion that we need our very own room at the local urgent care center.
That would have been a fun visit to explain to the Dr. had he hurt himself.
"Um, yes... It does appear that my son needs crutches for his broken femur injury that he sustained while playing with crutches." Nice.
Luckily, he came to his senses and put the crutches away before there were any mishaps, and happily went back to shooting hoops... while wearing his roller blades. Sheesh.

Checkers is a boring game. Now, checkers using live scorpions or lit firecrackers as pieces... That's fun!

I'm sorry to report that Nick demonstrated the crutch / rollerblade combo and I said "that looks like fun" without giving it a second thought.
