Right Knee:  "Hey!"

Me: "What?"

Right Knee: "I'm not doing too well today.  Can I have a couple of those little round things to make me feel better?"

Me:  "You mean the Ibuprofen?  I'm really sorry but I forgot to grab them off the desk when it was time to leave for work."

Right Knee:  "What?!  That's total B.S.  You gave the sinuses a little red thing this morning."

Me:  "Those were already in my purse.  Besides, they weren't letting me breathe."

Sinuses:  "We can't help it if we're getting over a cold."

Right Knee:  "I don't freaking believe this.  It's you're fault I'm feeling bad in the first place."

Me:  "I'm sorry.  Can't you just hang in there until we get home?"

Right Knee:  "You should never have made me climb up and down that ladder all those times yesterday.  That really sucked."

Back:  "Yeah it did.  And what was up with lifting all those boxes?  That's really hard on a sliped disk."

Me:  "You do not have any slipped disks!"

Back:  "Yeah but I could have.  Did you ever stop to consider that?"

Me:  "Are you kidding me?"

Right Knee:  "Let's not change the subject.  We were talking about the abuse you put me through."

Stomach:  "Excuse me..."

Me:  "Look, I said I'm sorry..."

Stomach:  "Excuse me..."

Right Knee:  "I'm going to cede from this body."

Left Knee:  "Oh no you don't.  I"m not going to do all the work by myself."

Stomach:  "Excuse me!"

Me:  "WHAT?"

Stomach:  "I hate to be a bother, but I'm getting hungry.  Can you help me out here?"

Right Knee:  "Get in line."

Me:  "How can you be hungry.  I only fed you a couple of hours ago."

Stomach:  "Yes, but what have you done for me lately?"

Me: "..."

Stomach:  "I know there's a sandwhich.  Can I have it now?"

Me:  "No, lunch isn't for another three hours at least."

Stomach:  "I hate you!"

Right Knee:  "Anyway, before we were so rudely interupted, you haven't said what you were going to do to make me better."

Me:  "For the last time I'm sorry but there isn't anything I can do until we get home."

Right Knee:  "Fine.  I'm going to make you pay."

Me:  " I think I already am."

Right Knee:  "I think I shall start letting you know whenever it's going to rain."

Me:  "Oh really?  And how do you propose to do that?"

Rigt Knee:  "Like this!"

Me:  "Ow!  Hey!"

Right Knee:  "Heh.  Heh.  Heh."

Head:  "Hey, um, I'm starting to get this nasty pounding sensation all through me.  Do you have any Ibuprofen?"

I realized that I haven't done a proper update type post in a while. Silly me.

Presents:

I would like to begin this post with an apology. My Frithmas gift list is a short one this year. It's a bit longer than it has been in a couple of years but there are still not many people on it. I am hoping that next year, I will be able to give gifts to more people. That being said, there are a couple of you who will be getting their gifts a little late. I know what I want to inflict on give you but I need to wait until the next paycheck to send it out. I know that this is lame but I hope to make it up to y'all.

Frithmas Eve:

I do have to work tomorrow but have been told that we will be far fewer trucks in than normal. Hooray for short work days!

Actually, I'm not sure how to take this news. Having spent the last several years in retail hell, Christmas Eve is usually a nightmare. I wonder what it will be like to not have to spend the day getting cursed and screamed at becuase we are out of the most popular item in that store that we had been advertising for a month. I wonder what it will be like getting off of work tomorrow and not need to spend the rest of the night staring off into space while twitching uncontrolably.

The Loot:

Yesterday we got a big box in the mail from my parents full of Frithmas stuff. Along with some brightly wrapped presents, they included our stockings as well as one for the cats. I've had the same stocking hanging up at my parents house every holliday for years. Frank's was added a few years back. It's nice to have them but I would rather that they were still at my parent's and that I could go home for the holliday. Life has greatly improved for my husband and I by moving to the Midwest but oh, do I miss my family.

When I opened up the box, it had quite a bit of news paper and tissue keeping the contents safe. Both cats watched the unpacking with extreme interest. When the box was emptied, I turned it on its' side and stuffed the paper back inside it. Within seconds, they cats were burrowing into the paper and generaly having a grand time. I think I will leave the box out for afew days. Frank said that the cats had a bit of a turf war over it today.

This last bit sort of rambles a bit but bear with me. )

And now I'm off to bed. Just because I get to drive a forklift instead of spending a day in retail hell doesn't mean that I don't have to get up before the ass crack of dawn.
