Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

It's a cast of experts

Today I went to the cast and fracture clinic for the next step in the process.  The nice young doctor showed me my x-rays, explained in a bit more detail what had happened, and remarked on the good fit of my splint.  I told him it was Adrian's last cast and he was so impressed that he decided to leave it in place for seven more days.  Then I go in for x-rays and cast replacement.

It was an amusing afternoon.  When I arrived, the receptionist remarked on my name and the song that features it. ("Roxanne - you don't have to put on the red light.") "But you've probably heard that already," she remarked, and had the grace to look a bit chagrined.  I said, "If I had a dollar for every man who has screamed that song at me, I could buy a limo and run over the bastards."  She found that very amusing.

Then as I was leaving, the doc told me a joke.
Q. What is a double blind study?
A Two osteopaths trying to read an EKG.

My last day at work, I hadn't managed to pull together a lunch, so when the young man sharing my shift decided to go for coffee, I gave him all the money in my wallet, which was $3, and asked him to get me something for lunch.

"What are you in the mood for?" he asked.

"Hot sex on a waterbed, but just get me a sandwich or something."  I told him. 

He just about blushed to death.  When he came back (with a Cliff bar and an apple) I apologized for being completely out of line and he told me he thought it was hysterical. Good lad!

    Enjoy LA this week. We're not having stellar weather. While you're not knitting, you can dream up new patterns for sweaters and new plots for books.

    Where I work that would get you a reprimand if you said it the wrong person. We're all about the PC around here.

    I hope the wrist has calmed down and isn't giving you too much pain.

    I commented to Grilltech, maybe we need to purchase another waterbed. Great minds do think a like!

    I guess everyone gets to have one friend who is an exhibitionist (smily-face). Wonder what the kid said on his Facebook page...

    Still working out the osteopath joke. Love your lunch request. Brian sings "Roxanne" to the kitty on a weekly basis. Ironically, she doesn't seem to mind, but the rest of us want to poop in his shoes. Enjoy this gloriously sunny day!

    Good thing he didn't sue you for sexual harassment. :) How would you have explained that at Chrysalis?

    LOL-- I should have known that when you said it was an amusing afternoon, YOU were the one providing the amusement. wasn't that sweet of them to leave Adrian's last cast on as a tribute to his handiwork! (and your last day, and no one could spring for lunch?)
