We got into the hospital elevator with a guy WHO LOOKED EXACTLY LIKE SANTA CLAUS. I cannot stress enough that I'm not exaggerating. The guy was stout, balding on top with long white hair and a longer white beard. He had a belly like a bowl full of jelly. He was wearing red suspenders, a red belt, red sneakers with a white shirt and white pants. I shiat you NOT. It was fricking Santa Claus if you met him in July.
I swear he looked more like Santa than this guy.
I soooo wanted to say "Santa's sick?" but every time Gary made me laugh it would end in a fit of painful coughing so I was trying hard to keep a straight face. For the entire elevator ride with Santa, Gary faced the corner with his back to Santa and me, with a big shit eating grin on his face. When we got off the elevator he said "You want to go first or shall I?" I was like "It was Santa!" and then Gary said something about being Jewish and had me laughing so hard I couldn't breath/walk.
So we get to x-ray (I was there for a chest x-ray) and when I tell the woman my name, the first thing she says to me is (and this is a quote) "That bra and t-shirt have to come off!"
"Okay, but next time you're buying me a drink first."
I go remove the offending clothing and when I get back Gary has an older woman entranced with a story. I go get my xray and in the xray room all I can hear is Gary talking and talking. As I'm getting the actual xray, I hear "So, you're thinking of going into nursing? Snap out of it!" Heh. After I was done I found him with two women while he was holding court. "They're mother/daughter you know..."
And then we get to the drug store. We entered the store behind this
And there you have it.
Lakeside cottage in Maine next to 4 cottages full of friends for a week: $525
Pneumonia related drugs: $47
Having a couple of days home all alone to get better: PRICELESS
It's awfully quiet around here and there's nothing to do except get better and lay in the sun. (and blog) Oooo and water the plants in the backyard! Two of our tomato plants are mammoth!!!! Since I've got nothing better to do I'll take some pictures of my backyard plants...impatients, tomatoes, basil, cilantro, mint, cantaloupe, sunflowers and some other pretty flowers that I don't know the name of.
