Welp! Looks like Hick is going to survive. He came home early again from his SUS2 (Storage Unit Store 2) on Sunday. It was 42 degrees, so not many customers, and he got a chill, and his legs hurt. Came home just before noon, and settled back in the recliner for a nap under that afghan again, scarcely six hours after awakening. Anyhoo... when he took his temperature two hours later, it was 98.5. So I guess he's going to make it.
The Pony, on the other hoof, had a little accident. At home, not at work. He was attempting to eat part of a big candy bar. He likes a Symphony. Not the kind with nuts, but the plain chocolate. He had already opened the big bar, and meant to snap off a few squares as a treat. But he BENT HIS THUMBNAIL BACKWARDS! I might be inclined to declare The Pony accident-prone...
Anyhoo... I commiserated with The Pony, telling him how I got a paper cut from an envelope flap while using my letter opener. The Pony is no stranger to paper cuts from envelopes. I felt kind of bad for complaining.
It's like telling Hick that my back hurts.
We have to complain. It emphasizes our caring.ReplyDelete
It also makes me feel better! Almost as good as medicine!Delete
I bent my own thumbnail backwards when tucking in the fitted sheet yesterday and the damn thing (the nail) split vertically down to the quick so I had to cut it right back in order to finish making the bed. So I understand how The Pony feels. Chocolate isn't meant to cause harm.ReplyDelete
If I have to be injured, I'd much rather it happen while eating chocolate than while doing a household task!Delete
Oh, that hurts! Paper cuts, too. They throb all night! Hope the Pony and your paper cut heal fast!ReplyDelete
I guess The Pony needs another layer of nail polish to strengthen his nails against bending backwards! My paper cut has stopped hurting, until I flip the light switch! You'd think I could remember to use a different finger.Delete
