Broken finger

So we visited our friends in Southbeach on the weekend of 19 May.

Damien told us about the surgery to have his broken finger stapled backed together.

"Did Sarah tell you I had broken it?" he began.

She had - plus they had both visited us soon after it happened, yanked to breaking point when he was walking their dog. We sat next to each other in a café on 17 March when his young son accidentally pulled on it as he got up, raising a great cry from Damien.

"Yes, you visited us soon afterwards. Do you remember the café in Easton where Adrian nearly broke it off for good?"

"Ah, yes."

I felt smug at my improved memory.

But I still managed to forget about his recent surgery when I shook his hand as we were leaving.
