A nice treat and a laugh

Today, I had a very nice and very rare treat - my husband and I had lunch together! It is quite unusual for us to be able to eat together during the work day as we work on opposite ends of town, and neither of us has the time in the  middle of the day to make the trip. If we did we wouldn't have time to eat! He was traveling today, visiting dealers (he's an account manager with a consumer electronics wholesale company) and was in my area at lunchtime, so he called, picked me up, and we went out. We ate at Lenny's Sub Shop. We ordered, and the cashier told me the total... so I turned to my husband. He offered, he's buying, right? =) I did tell him I'd make dinner tonight since he was buying lunch. (I make dinner almost every night.) I did buy us each a cookie for dessert on one of my refill trips.

Hint: No matter how thirsty you are, do NOT drink 4 glasses of tea at lunch if you are going back to work.


I have to share a funny story about myself, too. I had some x-rays taken on Monday after my doctor's appointment. The doctor had told me he was just ordering a couple simple films, nothing comprehensive. He really didn't think the problem was in my hip itself, but wanted to just rule it out.

When the technician took me into the x-ray room, she asked if my pants had a metal zipper. Yes. So she put a sheet over me and I had to pull them down to my knees. X-rays were taken, and she checked them. More taken, rechecked. I was really getting uncomfortable on the table.
Finally, she came over to me. "This is going to sound like a strange question, but is there maybe a metal charm on your underwear? Like an X maybe?"
I tried to remember what I had put on that morning.
Yes. There was an x on my undies.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who doesn't often remember what kind of undies I'm wearing! Although usually it doesn't matter.

She laughed, I laughed, had to pull them down also (now talk about uncomfortable on the table! Image doing that while lying down, with a very painful left hip/leg/knee, and staying covered, in front of 2 complete strangers!) X-rays were retaken, all was well again. Redressed, and I finally was able to go home.

I almost wish the x-rays WOULD show something, just to make all that worth it!
