A Conversation

On the 100 metre walk to where the patient lay in the middle of the makeshift football pitch:

"I've put a bandage on his leg".

"Great. What happened?"

"He was playing football, stepped on the ball, and fell over. There was a wicked crack."

"Have you moved him?"

"No. I just put a bandage on his leg."

"Is there lots of bleeding?"

"Well, no. Not really. The bone is sticking out of his leg, but not a lot of blood."

"Hm. Sounds broken to me".

"Don't think it's broken. The bone's sticking out, but there wasn't a lot of blood, so it can't be. Yeah. Pretty sure it isn't broken."

Mind you, you gotta love the optimism :-)
