I saw it all happen in super slow-mo. The old woman, who looked like she could be the poster lady for sweet, all-American grandmothers, turned her ankle on the curb and fell hard onto the pavement in front of the supermarket. She was on her way out of the store, carrying two brown paper sacks full of Thanksgiving groceries when she crashed to earth with a sickening thud that I won’t soon forget the sound of. I was only a few feet away but couldn’t get the words out of my mouth quick enough.
Watch out for the….curb!
