At Least It's Not His Funny Bone
Hoop is having all four of his wisdom teeth extracted tomorrow.
To prepare, I've bought the ingredients for a proper "last meal"... Steak. In 2006, back when Hoop and I were staying with my family, I had my wisdom teeth removed and my parents decided to have steak to celebrate. Of course I couldn't eat any of it. But I'm not bitter. I'm just waiting for the day they have some dental procedure done so I can sit on their front step eating a big juicy t-bone.
Hoop is understandably nervous about tomorrow. Me, I'm just trying to convince my body that I'm not really getting the flu. Because that would just be lousy timing, wouldn't it? We've stocked up on soup and Slim Fast for the patient and I've resigned myself to only eating things Hoop doesn't like for the next week, like salad. Don't pity me. Hoop doesn't have to know what's IN the salad. So what if mix my greens with ham and potatoes?
Dear Obnoxious Morning Commuter;
If you're going to stare at someone, at least have a response for when they decide to stare back. I tried to ignore you when you stopped short at the red light (three car-lengths away from the car in front of you!) just so your vehicle could be next to mine. I prayed for that light to change. When I finally decided to glance your way, thinking maybe you had a reason for trying to get my attention, you stared as if I had a boob growing out of my forehead. So I stared back, waiting for that moment when you realized you'd been caught. But you continued to look in that same blank way. "Oh my God," I mouthed at you. Then I flashed you my engagement ring. Still, you stared. Fortunately the light had to turn green, as is the nature of those things. So I floored it through the next set of lights until you were just a speck on the horizon. I actually feared what I might do to you if we were caught side by side again. Like maybe I might take this car and smash it through your back-end. Yeah. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
