Another Year... Not Dead Yet!

To-day was my birthday, which was celebrated idling in doctor's offices discussing new and exciting age-related illnesses, as well as having my skin poked and prodded for various and highly dangerous skin cancers. It was all terribly exciting, and my doctor high-fived me when he discovered that I'd developed my very first age spot!

After a wonderfully charming lunch with Sandra and Rene, I shuffled home to have a series of small heart attacks over house prices, reminisce over the past, and complain loudly about all these irresponsible young whippersnappers running around with their pants down.

The questions for today are: should I start discussing things like gastrointestinal disorders and sciata? And what is sciata exactly, and how does one go about acquiring it? Also, would one of those little pill organizers lettered with the days of the week really make a good investment for someone like me?

Other Purchases to Ponder:
1. a large plastic flower or tennis ball to place on my car antenna
2. a muumuu
3. orthapedic shoes
4. an enormous (yet cool!) tricycle for hauling groceries around
5. the complete collection of Lawrence Welk

I had other items to add to the agenda but cannot remember what they were, as I've been busy forgetting my medications and wandering off.

it's sciatica and while you can do things to bring it on, often it just happens.

happy birthday, btw.

also: I'm about to become your semi-co-worker again.

Happy birthday! I have sciatica ... it's basically a pinched nerve in my lower back that radiates into my leg every once in awhile. I think it's shoe-related, but I'm not giving up my heels ...

Don't worry kiddo: I will be around year after year to remind you that you are still (just) a babe. Also, Lawrence Welk was WAY ahead of his time. He was the Bob Marley of Polka.

Well, the other night you told me your birthday was soon, but i didn't know it was that soon. Happy belated birthday!

You should also purchase one of those visor hats made of wicker for your ensemble.

Happy Birthday !! Make sure the visor has one of those green plasticky looking visor parts so you can see through it without having to crane your poor ol neck.... hehehe.

Oh, happy birthday, you! I'm sorry I'm getting to this late, but the sentiment is there, nonetheless. And even some of us "young whippersnappers" are dull and boring, with a house full of 8 cats and a rocking chair. No kidding. Happy Birthday again!
