I’ve already written a post today.
The WP Gods are frowning upon me right now! Shaking their fingers at me ‘no no no! You shouldn’t! You mustn’t! You daren’t!’. And to that I smile and I playfully hide behind the curtain! Then I peek and whisper ‘But I should! But I must! But I..can!’
Let’s break some WP rules shall we?! After all, it’s in the family! My family! Or so it seems!
So here I am! Finished my 1 hour run, ‘indoors’, as we are experiencing what feels like the 10000th blizzard this month! I’m all showered. I have running aches all over but I’m used to them.
Tomorrow, I have 50 lb of coffee to roast and package for an order in the city! But right now, I’m warm and relaxed and …happy! And I have 2 little stories about two of my favourite people in this world, that I’d like to share before I go to bed. My sister. And my best friend. Who, are two perfectly interchangeable people at times, and have been! I sometimes feel a blood connection to my friend, and a deep friendship with my sister. It can’t be more wonderful in that sense.
First, my friend. I sent her a sappy text. And she called me. And boy did she have a story to tell! I’m still very concerned about her. She’s thinking of handing in her resignation at work! The stress at home and now at work, is causing her health issues now. I am deeply saddened by her situation! But have a feeling, she will emerge out of it, and she will be fine. At least, she’s talking to me now and I’m so glad we are back as close as ever!
Here’s my pathetic text that finally softened her heart!
The other story is incredibly funny and uplifting. It’s about my sister. My ‘real’ sister. The one who lectures Drama & Theatre!
My sister is near completely healed! It’s so bizarre! Considering she had a brain operation about a month ago! However, the funny part of the story is below!
M (my sister’s name), is a calm and collected woman! Most of the time!
Two days before her brain op, she is laying in bed in the hospital! They are doing all these prep tests etc. She is wracking her pre operated on brain, over one of her students, who happened to have his dissertation scheduled the next day! Basically the day before her scheduled surgery. She knows she’s not to leave the hospital under any circumstances!
She decides, she is going to get it done! The dissertation is going to take place! She’s not going to cause her student to have his graduation delayed due to a complicated brain surgery! Who does that after all?!
To that I’ll answer ‘everyone! Except my crazy sister! No wonder they were operating on her brain!’
After arranging the details of her arrival at the university with the faculty, the timeline and other crucial details_Crazy theatre folks can you say??!!_the silly woman puts on her clothes! Wears her hospital gown on top!!! Straps on her black stilettos!!! And sneaks out of the hospital! Gets it done in a couple hours, has some espresso with the faculty, then gets a taxi back to her hospital bed and no one is the wiser!
And now? Like I said, she’s healing amazingly well and nearly back to normal!
This is not my sister! Rather a deer visiting earlier today. Similar ears though.
