Was it good fortune or bad fortune that, ten minutes before our first date in months was set to begin, Martin’s hand was badly injured and we had to go to the ER?

On the one hand, that sucks. On the other hand, we had three hours of unscheduled time and a babysitter already lined up, which made it suck a lot less. On the other other hand, I wasn’t exactly planning to spend that time in the emergency room.
