The dangers of slippers

Saturday evening we had quite a scare with the boy. He was running from one side of the house to the other on the tile floor. He also happened to be wearing his spiderman slippers. And he slipped and fell, hard. He laid there for a few seconds in stunned silence and then started crying. We saw the event unfold and didn't think much of it until he stood up and tried to walk over to us. As he weaved from side to side, we saw the huge goose egg forming on his head. And panic took over. Hubby took him to the couch, I grabbed the ice and called the pediatrician. The nurse finally called back and told us to wake him up several times during the night for the next two nights to make sure he was still coherent and call back if his symptoms worsened. So of course I had to surf the internet for more information and totally freak myself out reading about concussions and bleeding in the brain. All is fine now except for a big knot and bruise on his head.

Oh, so a symptom would be acting like a republican?
