It's just a little paralysis

B: How was your hike?
D: Well, I was mistaken about the time so I ended up arriving late, parking 1/3 mile from the trail entrance. I then carried both kids all the way to the trail and then halfway through before meeting our friends (delayed by a low-hanging tree and a pesky rattlesnake) in a desperate attempt to make up time, which wouldn't have been so bad except that I had to carry both kids back up the very steep 1/3 mile hill to the car.
B: Wow. So are you okay?
D: Oh, yeah. (Pause) I can't really move my legs, but other than that, I'm fine.
