I've Discovered...

  • That although I have never shown animals in any sort of Future Farmer like event, sitting with my dad waiting for the medical team might be similar (Ok, dad, they're coming! Keep your blood pressure up! Show them how pretty your teeth are!).
  • Applying makeup to really tired eyes doesn't make them appear bright and happy. It makes them look like a tired French whore (as opposed to the wakeful ones).
  • When people tell you "Oh, this will just make you stronger!", they don't really take into account the idea that you might not want to be stronger. Perhaps you are strong enough.
  • A song called Knitta, Please. Go here. Download and listen.

I hate it when people say "whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger!" or words to that effect. It makes me want to beat them to within an inch of their lives, just to see if what they say is true.

Them (laying on floor, blood oozing everywhere, bruises rising about face and neck): Uggghhhh...

Me: So, did that make you stronger? yes? no? maybe?

I'm sorry to hear about your father - I've done time in hospitals for myself and for family, and while I find them to be useful - I'm not a big fan.

Oddly enough, I have a Knitta Please blog myself (no rap song connection, though).

Please remember that many of us out here in cyberspace are thinking and praying for your family. We truly miss your wit but understand you are where you need to be.:)

Jim, tomorrow is the birthday of one of our waiting room friends. Her father is recovering from a serious motorcycle accident. If I could find a card that said what you just said, it would be perfect.

Contemplate the greeting card industry!
