Anal-Man is safe, sore and sound! Actually, he's doing better than I thought he'd be, but I expect he'll be stiffer tomorrow. Rest and Vicodine, that's the ticket!
Now I can add that Karoshi-Man's dad decided that they had time to go to the bank, smog his car, and stop at a Starbuck's, all without calling home to see if I had heard from A-Man. winter_elf, thank you SO MUCH for volunteering to go and pick him up. I appreciate the heck out of you. :)
