You've heard most of the stories...
The Herpes Story
"Welcome to New Jersey"
Some of the minor stories, I don't have video or photos of. But they are burned in my brain.
Kathi just did a post about her ferry trip across the Delaware, which made me think of this little tidbit:
Sunday night, late... already in our jammies, Lynne and I were settling down in front of the TV for some normal time. Kathi was going to call when the ferry was on its way back (she was visiting Holly...a cyber-friend, not Kathi's dog).
I was dreading the drive through town to the ferry, but it was necessary...otherwise, Kathi would be stranded. Kathi finally called, and I got up and grabbed my keys. Lynne also stood up, and said, "I'll come with you."
Those few words stuck with me. I still think of them and smile. Lynne could have just gone up to bed and left me to my cold dark drive. But she went with me. God love her heart.
We went in our pajamas.
I think medical professionals have the best stories. There is no end to what a person is capable of doing to themselves, and that makes for good tales. Lynne works in a Lab, and any foreign object removed from a person has to go through Pathology.
As we waited for the ferry to unload, Lynne filled the chilly night with tales of Pathology...otherwise known as "What People Will Stick Up Their Bums".
The stuff one might expect to find:
But also things that one would not expect to find:
You know that screaming laughter than only women are capable of? We rocked the car with it.
