Please take the titular admonition seriously, especially those of you who think I am a Nice Lady. By reading further, you will see something scary. Also, vile language goes a long way in making me feel better, which I REALLY NEED RIGHT NOW! I LOVE THE WORD FUCK. It is one of the genius words […]

A Dash of a Note

Spent the whole afternoon electronically triaging and addressing patient results in the EHR. I of course am very far behind — impossible not to be. NO editing of letters today, and the afternoon is GONE gone gone. The rest of night will be spent relaxing I think. Maxi left for Baltimore this morning after he […]

Yesterday, Richard (aka Choleybird, aka Choley) and I took a walk — got above 10,000 steps for the first time in a few weeks. It was 70 or more degrees out and the sun was shining in a cloudless sky but for a few cirrhus wisps. We stopped at “Whimsies” in Tarrytown, a store I’d […]

“Things” R Ocque

Last Friday, the day I went back to work, I finally found out about Thing 2, after waiting almost a whole week. The first few days post-op, I was drugged and in a lot of pain, so I didn’t worry so much. But as I began to feel better, and I heard nothing, anxiety level […]

The Adventures of Vicki March

Dad had been into Saul Bellow a bit before he died. Dad gravitated toward historical nonfiction, not hysterical fiction, but for some reason, he asked me if I liked Saul Bellow. I had read some of the novels in college when I was taking one of Philip Roth’s classes, and found the books boring male […]
