One morning my friend and I were playing catch with a baseball at school. My friend accidentally hit me on the jaw so hard I fell down. There was some pain. When I got up I tried to close my jaw but couldn't. I thought about "the scientific statement of being" in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, which I had learned in a Christian Science Sunday School. It starts (p. 468): "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all."

Then the school bell rang and I went to class. When I got there my teacher told me to go to the clinic. The nurse asked me if I could shut my jaw. I said no. She felt my jaw and it hurt. The nurse called my mom and made arrangements to take me to my mom's place of work. My mom works at a sanatorium for Christian Scientists.
