I wasn’t going to post today because I’m crazy-busy at work and our Christmas cards have been sort of a bitch to get out and I have a headache and blah, blah, blah.
But then I got a scathing email from Anonymous reminding me that we have readers who actually care about what’s going on in our lives. Either that or they’re just looking for blog entries to distract them from their work (see, I’m onto you!) To be fair, the email from Anonymous wasn’t at all scathing, more of a gentle reminder that I had better find something to write about… and quick!
I could write about having to see someone’s surgical site the day after she was cut into when all I did was ask, “How are you feeling?” (All I have to say about that one is, “YUCK! That’s an image I’m not going to be able to get rid of for a while. And I’m NEVER asking anyone how they’re feeling ever again!)
I guess I could tell the story about one of the Pretend Husband’s crazy relatives. A few years ago, at her mother’s wake, she knelt next to the casket and began singing, “Through the Years” loud enough for everyone around her to hear. You might think that’s a sentimental thing for someone to do, but I just find it funny (I can be mean like that). So, every once in awhile, when there’s nothing else to talk about, either the PH or I will bust out the words to “Through the Years” (actually those are the only words to the song I actually know, so I tend to just repeat them sort of in tune) and we sit and giggle over the image of his relative kneeling next to a casket singing.
But since I’m sure you’re not interested in those stories (see Anonymous, I knew I didn’t have anything to write about), I’ll give you what you really want… a picture of Molly in her new coat. We’ve been calling her “Duchess Molly” because, seriously, have you ever seen a dog look more like royalty than in this velvet and fur-lined coat?
When you’re done laughing, get back to work! Oh, and happy holidays!
So many books...
