spare change in seconds

um the story of 

Liz -
      jumping -
                 off the canal…

and 
       falling so deep -
	
                 that 
                         her foot
got spiked by this nasty 
		
	  infected -
	               bacteria-
                                         laden

spike at the bottom of the canal it’s disgusting –

	and 

she ended up getting stuck on it realizing 
             ohhh man there’s a hole straight through my shoe

oh that means it went through my foot –

	well I got time for one more jump.

and then
             she did the jump -
        
     rode all the way home on her bike

and mom just knew it was infected already

    Andrew, Interesting layout for this write. I can't recall seeing this form before. Well written and presented. Excellent write. Hope Liz recovered from her injury. Infections can be so hard to shake. Always, Will
