Haiku! (Gesundheit!)

A call from the school
Then a trip to the E.R.
Makes any day suck

Fall on the playground
The spinning merry-go-round
Now not so merry

One sprained ankle and
No medical insurance
That’s perfect timing

Dental appointment
Phase two of a root canal
On the same damn day

Is it getting worse?
Two shitty weeks in a row?
Fuck you, September.

Muscle relaxer
A dose of hydrocodone
Mom’s down for the count.

    Well Shit! Shitty September, that’s what we’ll call it.

    So sorry for your shitty September. (should be on the cover of a hallmark greeting card, don’t you think?)

    Thinking of you.

    Oh no! Sweetie, I’m SO sorry…

    Muscle relaxer, a dose of hydrocodone — Um, got any extra? I’m thinking it might help my family deal with me better lately… you know, if *I* take it…


    Looks like you need more hugs than I do right now. {{HUGS}}

    OMGosh you are sooo right!

    This has been a shitty September! That BITCH!! That fucking bitch!

    I believe it’s high time to pack up and leave September in the dust. When she comes around next year, we aren’t haven’ that anymore.

    I am sooo going to send you chocolate. Because, that is just so wrong.

    Also, love and hugs to you and I hope big boy is feeling better.

  11. Oh dear. That doesn’t sound good at all.

    Catching up here. Cheez, honey, I hope things are turning around. Hang on. September ends soon. Hey, it’s a short one! That’s good . . .
    It’s a wonder more people don’t “go insurance,” you know, like “going postal?” Insurance companies are EXASPERATING to deal with.
