Two - In other surgery news, The Nephew had one the week of Thanksgiving. If you remember, he broke his arm last year. After they took the cast off, he had a cyst of fluid build-up, which the doctor said is not uncommon after wearing a cast. It wasn’t hurting him, so they decided to leave it. But I think The Nephew was always self-conscious of it and recently he told his dad that it was hurting him. Idk if it really was or if he was just self-conscious - (this came about right after school started back up) - but it was an outpatient procedure, so his parents decided to do it anyway. Thankfully, it all went fine. I called him the next day when he had the good pain meds and this conversation occurred.
Brother: Tell her what you are wearing at 3 in the afternoon.
The Nephew: My pajamas!
Me: What? Who are you…me?
TN: I know!
Me: Are you going to wear them to Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow?
Me: You don’t think Mommy would let you get away with that?
Me: That’s too bad because I wanted to wear my pajamas to dinner at Grandma’s house tomorrow. I was just going to tell her that you were doing it, so I should get to do it too.
TN: OKAY! That’s a plan! Let’s do it!
I love that kid.
Three - The Walking Dead midseason finale…I think that may have been the most tension filled episode of TV that I have ever seen in my life. At one point, when Michonne and The Governor were fighting, I yelled, “Grab a piece of glass and stab him in the eye!” And then…SHE DID! Not just grabbing the glass but stabbing him in the eye too! (Naturally, with only a piece of glass as your weapon, it is common sense that the eye is the place to go for). My sis and I had both been extremely tense during the episode, there had been a lot of hand-flapping, but when the eye-stabbing occurred…my sister fucking SCREAMED. I have watched a lot of scary movies with her and I have never heard her scream like that. It was kind of awesome. This fucking show, man. I can’t believe we have to wait until February for more.
