In the last two weeks I have spent more days in doctor’s offices then I’ve spent in the last twenty years. I never get sick. I have a two thousand dollar deductible.
You see, I fractured my foot twenty years ago and it recently started to screw with me. I wanted to find out why but the doctor would have given me a blood thinner. Being 49, I was scheduled to have a Colon-o-stick it up the what’s it… and I wouldn’t have been able take the medicine for my foot.
With my family history of colon cancer, mother, father, and “prodding” by my siblings to have the procedure, I hobbled to the hospital on a broken foot.
While lyin in the bed, turned to the left, it came to me.
“I could save two grand by sticking my foot up my ass.”


The bad news is I have 30 to 40 more years to live.


  1. Not to make light of your pain, but that was really funny.

  2. Join the crowd LOL.

    I have an award for you over at my blog.


  3. Lol! I would have skipped the test and taken care of the foot.

    I avoid doctors. I've noticed, living in Florida, the happiest, healthiest, older folks never go to the doctors:)

    I saw you over on Donna's blog, a fellow award winner, I had to check you out. Your blog is fun.

  4. Anne, making light of my pain is how I get through the hard parts.

    Donna, Thanks for the award and your crowd is a nice place to be.

    Terry, Your profile picture from far away looks like a rabbit with one black ear.

  5. Ha ha ha! I love the way you deal with it. :-)

    I hopped over from Kittie Howard's blog to say hello (I haven't been by in a while) and to congratulate you on your award. :-)

  6. Dude, I've got a little something for you over at my place. Enjoy!
