"on some stairs..."

A few weeks back, Chad and I were taking some boxes to Chad's moms house and Chad missed a step walking down the stairs and fell down. As he fell he heard a "SNAP!" We had a birthday party to go to right afterward and said he didn't think it was broken. As the day wore on it kept getting more and more swollen. Finally I talked him into going into the insta care especially since he heard the SNAP! Come to find out he Sprained (tore ligaments) his ankle very badly. I kept laughing at him because the check in lady, the nurse and the Doctor all asked him how it happened and he would respond ..."on some stairs." I told him, to give them more information than that, tell them about the snap and the fall, and he said he didn't want to seem like a wuss. So I just laughed, and I told the Doctor the story :) They gave him a formed fitted brace/cast. And told him to go home relax and put his feet up for about a week...I wish someone would tell me to do that, I would have no problem with that treatment!!!
