El Milagro: I arrive and show off my new splint… Joseph the Hulk, who has written “Big Daddy” on his clear plastic face shield, comes to stick me, so from now on we’ll call him Joseph the BD. We talk about standing up for yourself in 8th grade and ways to avoid bullies… Celeste the Nurse does my eval and checks my TB test.
Sherry the Nurse reports on her work related to my “bill” from the DC trip last fall; turns out that the ins paid and it and “…they put it in a column and then someone moved it up but it shoulda stayed back down, so she’ll move it back down, blah blah blah…” any way it is taken care of now. I thanked Sherry and now we have to get to work on FW and K-ville trips.
The sad news today is about Eddie Arnold passing on: I can’t remember a time when he wasn’t on my radio… like a Ray Charles or a Hank Williams… the voice of buttery maple syrup, according to Diana Shore. For Eddie, the world has gone away, and RIP.
Tonite are my shows but I also want to see the Spurs and Hornets, who my dad is afraid are gonna bury his spurs… “they’re too young and too fast” he frets, “and they’re down two games…”… so, I want to catch part of it so we can talk about it later.
Here’s the TV run-down: Survivor ~ the women trick the last boy into giving uo immunity and then they throw his ass right off the island, which he deserves btw, for being so stupid! Gray’s Anatomy ~ more of the same round robin soap. LOST: coming on when I get home. Spurs ~ they never get the pre-game hoopla done before I am unhooked, clamped up, unclamped, bandaged up, and ready to go… I think it is 4 to 0 when I leave… but hey… they are in SA, so they gotta win this one, right? They are the CHAMPS!
Notes: In at 78.4 and out at 74.6 Kgs.
