What a crazy week! I feel like life has slowed down just a little and has become an awkward slow-mo feeling. What day is it? As one of my coworkers says everyday when walking in to work, "Loving life...living the dream." I have such a fabulous life, even when the craziness happens.
This past weekend a little episode happened that I'll call Jack's Thumb vs. the Motorcycle Chain. I can only imagine the suspense you are sitting in wondering who wins this one. My wonderful knight-in-shining-armor, Jack-of-all-trades (hehe) extremely ambitious husband was fixing his motorcycle with incredible plans to do the dishes and put away the laundry before I got home within 30 minutes when his thumb inconveniently got in the way and consequently became what is now known as a "partial amputation". I was not nearby so he called a friend to take him to the ER then called me to meet him there. I drove 80-85 mph down the highway past a cop who was clocking people and managed to swing my car with screeching tires and all into a parking space safely so that we could spend the next 5 hours in the ER in the trauma section. The friend who drove him to the ER gave him mad props for landing in the trauma section. That takes some work apparently or mere carelessness depending on whose side you get on the story. When asked what his pain was, Jack replied with "isn't that relative?" so he was subjected to the frowny face or the happy face. Doctor's children. I tell ya. I do have to hand it to him- he was cracking jokes while in some serious pain. He went from a serious high 2 weekends ago when skydiving to sitting in the ER with a bum thumb. The man doesn't know how to have a boring life. I don't know that "settling down" is in his vocabulary.
Well, nevertheless life is turned upside down for a few weeks here. I got to thinking I know when people decide to have children. It is when life just gets too boring with just them. So based on that calculation, Jack and I will not be having children....possibly ever. Just kidding. Every day I say to Jack after kissing him goodbye for the day, "I love you sweetheart. Please be safe today" and of course he says, "I'm always safe. Safe is my middle name." Joke of the century. Guess what- he no longer has the right to say such ridiculousness.
Below is a hilarious representation of the ER that we experienced. Love Brian Regan.
Always remember "Say 8!"
