Crazy Conversation

July 5, 2012

My Uncle Gerry and I harass each other regularly on facebook, but he hadn’t been on the last few days so I decided to text him. Our conversation:

ME “What are you doing?” UNCLE “Who is this?”

ME “This is your sweetest, favorite niece.” UNCLE “I don’t think I know you.”

ME “Remember I am really skinny, with beautiful blond hair, blue eyes, wonderful disposition, etc.” UNCLE “Where do you live?”

ME “In DisneylandUNCLE “I don’t think I know you.”

ME “If you don’t remember me I will come and get you and take you to the nursing home”. UNCLE ……. (he says nothing)

ME “I am going into town to see Aunt Lissie and Dwain, so don’t get out in the road or I will run you down.” UNCLE (still nothing), so I call him and the reception is bad – he has trouble hearing me and keeps saying “Who is this?”

I tell my parents, who I am visiting, that Uncle Gerry sure didn’t sound like himself …… THEN IT HITS ME………………. I say “Uncle got a new phone number didn’t he?” They say YES, so I realize that I just told this poor, elderly man – that doesn’t hear well that I am going to put him in the nursing home and I am going to run him down. By this time my parents are laughing their heads off as I pace around the room in disbelief that I could have scared this elderly man to his death today!! (I did text him again to apologize and tell him I had the wrong number.)

Note to self (When I harass family members – make sure that I have their new phone number programmed.)

My Awesome Day

July 2, 2012

Today I had the most awesome day!! I was so tired last night from the trip down to see my parents that I slept like a log. I woke up this morning and my pain level was low and I actually had a little energy. I helped my parents pick tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, etc.

For lunch I ate cantaloupe and tomatoes that my parents grew. I just stuffed myself with them. So good! I am hurting more now and ready for a nap, but boy did I have fun this morning. Praising God for my good morning, time with my sweet parents, and the overcast sky so it wasn’t so hot. I wish for you a day of little to no pain and extra energy!!
