Wayward Passengers, Please Report to the Gate

My Love just returned from the annual company physical (perk of being a Globetrotting Executive Goddess), and the news is good.

Even though I – he of imagined heart attacks and actual panic attacks - still hold the family record on that sexist stress test), she is perfectly healthy and able to continue to support me in the manner in which I am accustomed.

BAM!

Two bloody knees and a sore wrist.

So, friends, while I attend to her every need (her need, not mine, gutter-dwellers) (but I appreciate your rooting for me), here are few oddly appropriate items I wrote elsewhere this week for your enjoyment:

  2. I do hope you are putting the "Boo Boo Bunny" on Your Love's injuries. (Although I believe that putting the ice directly in to a glass with a favorite medicinal beverage is as good if not better. After all, it is Friday.....)

  5. You are such a good guy! lol @ the gutter mind... Funny but I didn't even GO there in my mind when you said "her every need"

    I thought of lounging on a great bed with fluffy blankets and chocolate all around and the T.V. remote. And a little bell in her hand that she swings back and forth ever so forcefully so that you may feed her another chocolate. But not forcefully enough that she hurts her fragile wrist! :)

  7. Has she pulled the "I can't use the remote with this hand" yet? It's a classic. It's a ploy to make you watch Grey's Anatomy with her...

    I am so sorry to hear about Rhonda's injury. How annoying for her. Stuff like that is just irksome.
