Once staked out on the table, she finally relented amid growly growls as I snipped the bandage off. It's long and ugly, so I won't show a picture. No use ruining your breakfast. I re-bandaged it to keep it clean. That lasted all of ten minutes, as you can see by the look on her face. She ripped the whole thing off.
FINE!! It's the cone of shame for you, Missy. This morning it looks really good ... three more days for the stitches to come out. She's running and jumping everywhere, so it must be feeling good too.
Next to get in trouble was of course my gardener. I clean out the sprinklers every year. They do nothing to keep them that way. How about a hit with the weed-eater to keep the grass at bay? Steak knife in hand (the serrated edge works so well) I cleaned out 30 of these holes.
When I turned the sprinklers on, I had two geysers almost as tall as the house. HE JUST CHECKED THEM!! Obviously he didn't walk away from the control box or he would have seen water shooting into the air. I turned it off and began to water station by station.
That's when "I" got in trouble. I was stuck behind two large sprinklers and couldn't get out without running through them. YAY!! I made it! Only got a tad wet on my legs. That is until I sat down and realized I got a full spray in the butt, soaking me to the skin.
The gardeners are supposed to show up this morning and we will have yet another talk. Yes, I've talked to other companies, who want to charge me upwards of $200 a month. UGH!!
Oh .... and my trip to the dentist! I was in trouble this time. Did I ever mention Dr Randolph? He worked in the Mondo building when I was a kid. Horrible dentist! He drilled four cavities in baby teeth WITHOUT NOVOCAIN telling me it didn't hurt ... what was I crying about??
It took twenty one years for me to gather up the courage to go to another dentist. Luckily I found the one I see now. When I required a crown due to a broken tooth, he went out and bought a CD player and hooked me up, turning the music on LOUD. His office girl, who has become a great friend, held my hand the entire time. I was petrified!!
So when I heard the good doctor's son was taking over, I wasn't bothered. I did however, get a lecture because I had not let them take x-rays for five years. Mostly because of no insurance, not to mention I didn't want to glow in the dark from all the x-rays you usually have every year.
Okay ..... x-ray away!! WELL ... seems I have a cavity between two teeth on the top. I didn't see a darn thing when he pointed to it, but I'm not a doctor. Sorry, he will have to prove it before he drills. I got a reprieve until next year however ... if it's getting bigger, he needs to do a quick fill. I can deal with that since they now do in-house knock-you-out anesthesia. I know, I'm a wimp. All because of the first dentist I ever saw.
Next up .... gear up for the gardener conversation and get out the weed sprayer!! Oh boy, what fun!
