I Need Extra Arms!!! Now!!! LOL

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Seriously, when I have a coughing fit, what do I clutch? My abdominal muscles are aching from the coughing, and it takes both my arms to clutch them while I cough.

However, the back of my neck also aches from the coughing, so I have to relinquish the abdominal hold with one hand, to clutch the back of my neck.

But then, my head feels like my brain is crashing around inside my skull when I cough (mind you, that could explain a few things). So I need an extra couple of hands to cradle that.

And now, just to add an element of fun to the proceedings, my weak bladder has decided to add a new dimension to my day. Yes, I now now pee when I cough, causing a flailing of arms as I try to clutch my abdomen, neck, head and knickers all at once with only two arms.

Tara is coughing again at the moment, but because of laughter at my contortions this time. Cheeky kid! The move that tipped her over the edge was when I coughed as I was lifting a leg of chicken out of the fridge (wrapped, fortunately, because where that ended up, no one would fancy eating it tonight, that's for sure!!!). The resultant attempt to clutch my bladder with my right leg while balancing on my left leg and clutching both my stomach and neck, then freaking out because a cold wet something in my left hand hit my neck, well, it defies description!

Suffice to say Tara damn near wet herself too at that point!!!

Panic ensued as I threw the chicken from my hand! Who knew a chicken leg could fly! Waitrose brings your chicken back to life! Could be an interesting store motto.

Anyhoo, at least, as I said, it was bagged up, and retrievable from the dark recesses of my kitchen, and it is currently sitting demurely in a bowl waiting to be heated through. I would have tied it down, but it promised to behave itself this time. It is smothered in rosemary and garlic. That should freak my germs out, don't you think? :-)

In other news...

Had a bit of luck at the RSPCA charity shop today. Got a copy of Eagles CD - Long Walk Out of Eden for 25p. What a fabulous album!

Well, that is about it for today.

Oh, yes I did get my daily streak in, cold as it was. :-) 9 Just Dance songs, which were on my bingo cards and challenge games.

While standing in the crowded bus, I noticed a young man, who was holding onto the same pole, staring at me. Eventually, he said, "Excuse me. This is my stop."

Since I wasn't blocking his way, I was confused.
"Well," I said, "go ahead."

"And this is my pole," he said.

I was completely perplexed until the young man added, "I just bought it at the hardware store to hold up my shower curtain."

Oh, I see... Sorry about that... *bursts out laughing as the situation becomes clear to my fuddled brain, adding to the laughter from the passengers within earshot*

Have a less dramatic day than me! LOL
