silver lining

I'm not really worried about the surgery. Just, you know, the usual what-unforeseen-and-calamitous-thing-is-going-happen-next feelings knawing at the back of my brain.

So I'm focusing on this cheerful comment by one of the members of my household: Look at it this way. However it turns out, it'll be good news for someone.

Hey, even doctors need to pay their mortgages, right? Lighting a macroon candle for you today, m'dear.

Er.

thordora said...

Man...is it sad that if someone in my house said that to me in similar circumstances, I'd giggle like a madman?

good luck today.

Patti said...

Oh, I'm sorry, but I had to laugh at that. Too funny...er..sorry. *attempting a straight face*

Good luck today. Will be thinking of you and hoping you're well. :)

Yep, everytime I tell my husband I'm worried about his health he laughs, reminds me of how much life insurance he has, and says "Ka-ching, honey just think how rich you will be!"

I react with exasperation and give up.

Odd they way some people react to stress. I guess it makes them feel better to make these jokes?

Aurelia: I actually thought it was hilarious. But, then, I'm easily amused.

Julia said...

The acidity level in your household... I wonder what (peaceful) use that can be put to.
Sticking to my no condiments pledge for the day. But our coffee machine seems to have broken. So I guess I will have to pay money for mine today. Drats.
