4. Brenda stubbed her toe while running after the man she was going to kidnap and force to marry her.
5. Lauren stubbed her toe learning to walk with her new prosthetic foot. It didn’t hurt.
6. Gloria stubbed her toe on the way to join her cult in a mass suicide, and the pain made her realise she was too scared to drink the Kool Aid.
7. Andrea stubbed her toe and tripped, causing the sniper aiming at her to miss.
8. Sarah tripped over the damn cat again.
