  • Mood:
One of my patients last night was a teenager 302'ed by his parents. '302'ed' means that his parents had filled out papers under Pennsylvania Statute 302, forcing the boy to be involuntarily taken to a psychiatric facility and examined. (He was sent to my ER first to be 'medically cleared'.)

The 302 form that came with him was the usual litany of disrespect teenagers show for adults. "Told his mother to go fuck herself." "Told me he was going to kick my ass."

But here's my favorite:

"Went to a gang war today instead of doctor's office."

Dude! I would have, too. Sounds like a *lot* more fun.




meaning: rope, climb

縄跳び == nawatobi == (noun) skipping, rope-jumping
縄張== nawabari == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) roping off, stretching rope, demarcation

Left radical is 'thread' (糸). The right radical is derived from a pictograph of a type fly, and acts phonetically to express 'twist'). Twisted threads are ropes or cords. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as two 'days' (日) and a 'long cord', and as a mnemonic: 'Threading rope takes longer than two days.'
