Frolic injury

Sunday, August 17th, 2003 - 9:20 pm PDT

Rev. Smith suffered a sprained ankle and bruised forehead this morning after frolicking with friends in a dewy meadow. Smiles turned to frowns as Smith accidentally collided with a fellow merry-maker and then stumbled to the ground. The National Safety Council recommends that frolickers wear safety helmets, goggles, and paded clothing. It is not believed that Smith was wearing any protective gear at the time of his injury. Doctors had previously recommended frolicking to Rev. Smith as a way to calm down after an incident last month when Smith pulled a muscle in his arm while angrily shaking it at passers-by.
