Why do we hurt ourselves to gain someone else's love?
Is the question Rajiv Joseph asks in the oddly hilarious "Gruesome Playground Injuries." And lost love, pain, and regret are feelings all humans share. Kayleen and Doug go through 30 years together as their lives intersect at at the most bizarre intervals, leading the two childhood friends to compare scars and the physical calamities that keep drawing them together.
