After three days of itching, I bagged up what I thought was the offending allergen and trotted over to urgent care. Yes, it’s hives. Yes, it could’ve been because of a newly purchased cocoa butter body gel.
After getting my scripts and instructions, the nurse picked up the ziplock bag with the gel in it.
“You can throw that fucking shit out,” I told her.
I may itch and look a pretty sight, but at least I made the doc and nurse laugh!
Good one, dee
I also cracked up the PA when I asked her out of the side of my mouth if the doctor on schedule was male or female. She said there’d be a nurse present. I replied, “Oh, it’s not that, it’s that I’ve gotta show him my ass.” She cracked up too. Who knew I was so funny?
The doc the nurse and me 😂🤣
Well something good comes out of my half week of itching, then!
Ha. Always good when the medical professionals get a laugh 🙂 I really like the bright, purpley-blues of this one Dee.
The woven strips date back to the Hearts to Charleston quilt. Hence, the feel is very dated to me — but I want to use things up!
love seeing the gently falling snow, bummer about the hives (please excuse the pun, couldn’t help myself)
I don’t mind being the butt of your jokes!
My first thought would have been, can it be the carrier base of the flu shot? I’ve had so many reactions to flu shots that I’m not allowed to take them anymore.
Thanks for the idea and my sister was the same. But I haven’t had any recent shots. Flu shot was back in September
Your humor was a great gift for the hospital staff, surely. I hope your hives subsided immediately. Miserable affliction.
I love the counterpoint of the heart’s curves and colors on the woven grid.
your video looks like the view from my window! hurray we have snow too…..nothing like a tad of schadenfreude to cheer us up Dee
(hope you’re feeling better by now)
Happy to oblige! Less itchy today but rash still spreading. I’m sure tomorrow will be better.
Charleston was on my mind as I pondered Black History Month … like Sandy Hook it made me think “surely this will be the last time … we can’t possibly allow this to keep happening” …
