On his own...carefree, graduated, new apartment, new job...then.... finger meets doorframe....doorframe wins.
John caught his right little finger on a door frame in his new apartment and broke the finger at the Carpo-metacarpal joint. (How about that impressive medical terminology, Dr. Katie? :)
He's taped and splinted and is supposed to give it a break for 6 weeks.
Makes it tough to work construction and if your thank-you note from John looks a little weird, (or heaven forbid...mass produced) you'll know why.
