This post is probably going to ramble and make no sense, I'm just warning you ahead of time. I'm having trouble stringing together cohesive thoughts because I'm high on cold medicine because a cold virus has invaded our house. I'm pretty sure Bobby brought it home because he was sick last week. I told everyone not to kiss him or drink after him but hubby thought he'd be all funny when I said that and pretend to kiss him. He didn't kiss him but he did put his hand over his mouth and he probably got germs on it and then didn't wash it. So basically I blame them both. Because now hubby has it, I have it and Sean has a freaky rash on his arm. I don't even know what that's about but I'm hoping it's not contagious too. Because if I have to add an anti-itch pill I'll probably pass out and wake up next week sometime.
Anyway, I've decided that I missed my calling and I should totally have been a doctor. Really, it doesn't even matter that I hated Biology, I've got mad diagnostician skills that could have been put to use saving humanity. And I know this because last night Lu and I were watching "Mystery Diagnosis" on Discovery Health (yeah, that channel again). And the lady was having horrible pain and her legs kept turning black. It was gross. And it made my legs feel all squirmy and I got kind of nauseous. But I persevered and when I looked at her legs I said~
Me: You know, those kind of look like petechiae that you get Lu.
Lu: I've never had that many of them and they don't turn purple or black.
Me: Yeah, but they can. They can join together and make bigger spots called purpurae. I read about it. That's what those look like. I bet Dr. House would put her butt on steroids. That's always a good first call.
Lu: You know Dr. House isn't real right?
Me: Please don't disturb my fantasies with your reality. It annoys me.
Then on TV the Doctor says the purpurae were appearing right before their eyes.
Me: Oh! Who called it?! That's right! Me!
Lu:*rolling her eyes* Lucky guess.
Then they decided she had cryptoimmunoanemia. Or something else equally hard to pronounce. But it was because of some crazy antibodies.
Me: AHA!! It was an immune system dysfunction. And giving her steroids would have helped because it would have shut down those antibodies. I should totally be a doctor!!
Lu: I think it might be a little late for that kind of career change.
Me: *shrugs* whatever.
Then I got up to Facebook a friend to set up lunch for today and Lu kept watching the show. But then she got mad.
Lu: OMG! Remember how she forced her husband to leave her because she felt unloveable? Well when she got all better she found a new guy instead of going back to the old one. What a hussy! I'm not watching this anymore!
And she turned off the TV and left. But I was absorbed in FB by then so it didn't matter. I was excited because Mckenzie at unabridgedgirl had found me and friended me. I told Lu that I'd adopted Mckenzie now and she was my new daughter and Lu was very jealous. She's kind of like that. And then I realized that I have like 153 FB friends. That must mean I'm very popular, yo. So if I became a doctor, I'd have tons of patients. You'd all come see me, right??
There's a new post up at G & H to check out. And if at all possible, there will be a new review at What Spot Saw as well!
Have a fabulous Tuesday,
