I am exhausted!
And I really didn't do anything today. Went to my treatment this morning ( and got to catch our guys on the TV while waiting for my turn!), then took my car to the shop. Which took from 9:30 to 1:30pm!! Yes, I sat around that darn dealership all that time. It seems that while checking out my car, they found a brake line leak! Which is a good thing they caught it. Instead of me finding out the hard way, either on my way to Kissimmee, or to Virginia with the family! Visions of major car wrecks flashed through my brain!!! So they fixed that- as well as 2 new tires, oil change, and all the regular stuff. At least the problems were under my warranty, and I didn't have to pay for it! But sitting there really wore me out. Now I know what Joe said about a long plane ride being "mind-numbingly boring"! That was my morning.
I still haven't watched the show I DVR'ed. I want to sit down, and run through it a few times ( just for fun) and then prime the VCR to tape the "important" parts. But they looked great didn't they! Joe looks like he took off some weight ( that he may have put on while he quit smoking?) And the rest of the guys looked as handsome as ever. Becky said they looked good as well- maybe she's slowly coming over to our side??? A mother can hope, Huh?!
Well, it's friday, and I thought this one is one that we can all ( well, except Michael ;-)) can relate to. And if your a woman, and can't- well, I'll just have to come after you will a billy club!!!!!!!
Power outage during Mammogram
I was met with, "Hi!!!!...I'm Belinda!"
This perky clipboard carrier smiled from
ear to ear, tilted her head to one side and crooned, "All I need you to do is step
into this room right hereee, strip to the waist, then slip on this gown.
I'm thinking, "Belinda .. try decaf. This ain't rocket science."
Belinda skipped away to prepare the chamber of horrors.
Call me crazy, but I suspect a man invented this machine.
It takes a perfectly healthy
cup size of 36-B to a size 38-LONG in less than 60 seconds.
Also, girls aren't made
of sugar and spice and everything nice....it's Spandex. We can be stretched, pulled
and twisted over a cold 4-inch piece of square glass and still pop back into shape.
With the right side finished, Belinda flipped me (literally) to the left and said, "Hmm.
Can you stand on your tippy toes and lean in a tad so we can get everything?
"Fine, I answered. I was freezing, bruised, and out of air, so why not use the remaining
circulation in my legs and neck and finish me off?
My body was in a holding pattern
that defied gravity (with my other boob wedged between those two 4" pieces of square
glass) when we heard, then felt a zap!
Complete darkness and the power went off!
"What?" I yelled."Oh, maintenance is working. Bet they hit a snag."
Belinda headed for the door."Excuse me! You're not leaving me in this vise alone, are you?"
I shouted.Belinda kept going and said,
"Oh, you fussy puppy ... the door's wide open so you'll have
the emergency hall lights. I'll be righttttt backkkk."
Before I could shout "NOOOO!" she disappeared.
And that's exactly how Bubba and Earl,
maintenance men extraordinaire, found me,half-naked and part of me dangling from the
Jaws of Life and the other part smashed between glass!
After exchanging polite "Hi, how's it going" type greetings, Bubba (or possibly Earl) asked,
to my utter disbelief, if I knew the power was off.
Trying to disguise my hysteria, I replied with as much calmness as possible. "Uh, yes, yes!!!
I did thanks."
"You bet, take care" Bubba replied and waved good-bye as though I'd been standing in the
line at the grocery store.
Two hours later, Belinda breezes in wearing a sheepish grin and making no attempt to
suppress her amusement, she said.
"Oh I am soooo sorry! The power came back on and I totally forgot about you!
And silly me,
I went to lunch. Are we upset?"
And that, Your Honor, is exactly how her head ended up between the clamps...................
Have a great Friday/weekend! Peace and Love, KC
