Ruby hears a whimpering by the buffet.
Ruby sees Gabriel hunched over.
Ruby starts laughing.
Gabriel: "Ruby it's not funny! (whimpering) I... hit... my... head..."
Ruby: "I know... I saw... (sarcastically) oh Gabriel, it'll be okay! I'm sorry!"
Gabriel: "Stoppit! It's not funny! (tries not to laugh)"
Ruby goes over to Gabriel.
Gabriel takes his arm down from his head.
Ruby sees a little red spot on his shirt.
Ruby wonders: "How did he get that red spot there to make me believe he's really hurt.
Ruby glances at his head, and a moment later rushes him into the bathroom.
"Daddy, daddy! Look at Gabriel!"
Daddy looks at Gabriel.
Daddy says: "Quick! Get the camera!"
Hence the below picture...
As Monk would say....
"Here's how it happened...."
The sound of piano music from the family room drifted into the kitchen. Pianist Brooke Hopkins was right in the middle of his third piano lesson for the day. The young student was playing a Sonatina by F. Kuhlau. Gabriel was in the kitchen... picking at anything that was edible. He then thought that he would steal into the music room to check something on dad's computer. The piano music kept on drifting... and drifting... Gabriel took big strides towards the family room, closing the basement door to get by. But as he was closing it, it bounced off of his foot (he had closed it so fast that it bounced off of his foot...) however, he had kept his upper body moving, and he door hit his head, and penetrated ALL THREE layers of skin, arousing the blood found there, which flowed angrily down his face. Gabriel put his face in the crook of his elbow and whimpered. Because Gabriel doesn't cry. But he does whimper.
