So good! –On Friday I didn’t finish my Starbucks mocha. I had an appointment and errands. I got home close to noon looking forward to finishing it off. I drank some and was off doing something else. I found it in the evening with a third left. It was 12 hours old. I microwaved it. It was still wonderful and a pleasant surprise for the end of the day! Chocolate does not go bad.
Barnacle blasting – This week I had my annual trip to the dermatologist to get the new crop of barnacles taken off. The doc calls them seborrheic keratosis. I call them barnacles. This year I had a new doctor. She looked like she was 12 but that was partly because she was small. There aren’t many young adults who are smaller than me. She was young enough to be my granddaughter but she kept calling me sweetie. Can’t say I’ve ever been called that by a doctor. It was very weird.
Speaking of which – Health insurance no longer covers removal of non-cancerous growths even if they are annoying and located at bad spots. It cost $250. That was with a discount because I had “the look” on my face when she told me the regular price. (Even the tech thought it was outrageous!) It took 3 minutes with a canister of liquid nitrogen. Yikes!
Dueling tans – Yesterday I got to see road rage up front and personal. (While it was entertaining, it wasn’t pretty!) We were stopped at a light in the left turn lane. In the lane to our right a woman in a car was yelling. I looked over hoping it wasn’t at us. (The beloved husband was driving. I was distracted so I wasn’t doing my usual annoying front seat driving.) She was yelling at the car in front of her. Both women looked like 30 something soccer moms. The one getting yelled at had kids in her car. Both were blonde with very nice tans and upswept hair. The light changed, we turned and the dueling tans continue straight with a lot of yelling out the window about where they each got their licenses. It’s not worth it. You never know whose packing heat these days. It could be a tanned blonde!
Less clothes – One of the things I love about summer is wearing less layers. No bulky sweaters. No thick socks. No coats or hats or gloves. It’s so light and simple. Just enough fabric to cover the flabby parts.
So how was your week?
