10 of the Tiredest Things on this Tuesday

I know that this topic is more tired than Phyllis Diller on the last day of Fleet Week but for reasons beyond my control I'm still on it. I'll try to be both brief and funny.

10 Nice Things That People Do When You Fuck Up Your Arm Beyond All Recognition

1. They talk to you while you cry on the street and get brave enough to assess your injuries. (MKAEP)

2. They help you decide which ER is the right one to go to. (Pony Express)

3. They walk your dog. (Alex, Pony Express)

4. They take out the nasty, stinky chicken garbage that you forgot to take out because you didn't know that you wouldn't be coming home without 2 working arms. (Alex)

5. They open your water for you. (Pony Express, Mike - bonus to Mike for handing me the water, tipping the server then whipping back and saying, "You want me to open that for you?" before I had to abase myself by asking. Bonus to Pony Express for calling when she got home and saying, "I forgot to ask if you needed any food opened. Sorry.")

6. They send chocolate. (Organic Mama, Chili, ProfDoc)

7. They make that chocolate funny. (ProfDoc - whole 'nother post)

8. They ask you wicked scary questions that make you realize that it could have been a lot worse. (Boss #1, Mike - "Do you think you passed out and that's why you fell?")

9. They fill your humidifier tanks, pour the dog food into the bucket, pour the cat litter into the box and other pouring and lifting combos because you can usually pour or lift but not both. (Pony Express)

*10. They tell their mother, "I want Kizzy." and make you feel warm and fuzzy all over...with a side of guilt for how long it's been since you've seen them. (Alita)

*Technically does not have to do with the whole falling on my face thing but made me so guiltily happy that I had to include it.


  1. It's not tired. I wasn't there for all of those other 9 nice things people did so I'm glad to read it! Hope your feeling better. Hope to have a Clemo sighting tomorrow or thurs.

    I think sometimes accidents happen to remind us how much we're loved and appreciated.

    I'm glad you're on the mend. : )
