So, it's day two of the Back to Blogging challenge. Just like yesterday, this challenge is sponsored by Standards of Excellence, Westar Kitchen and Bath, and Florida Builder Appliances. Today's assignment is to repost something that you wish more people had read.
Now, I went back through my archives and I found two posts that I could have shared with you. One was an opinion post that would have everyone up in arms, and the other was funny. I'm choosing to go with the funny one because
- I'm lazy and a lot of edits are needed to make that opinion post work
- Everyone deserves to laugh once in awhile.
A Loose Screw
Ever heard of someone truly having a loose screw? Not just in the figurative, “he’s gone crazy” sense, but really having a screw on the loose in his body? Nope? Didn’t think so. Neither had I, but I experienced such a phenomenon today. How, you wonder? Remember, I have an eight year old boy. Enough said. However, for those of you who do not personally know my son, I will explain. Master Hull recently developed a small chalazion on his eyelid so I called the doctor this morning and off we went for what should have been a routine visit. Note the word “should.” Once the doctor entered the examining room, he began to give Master Hull the typical once over. Eyes– fine. Nose– fine. Ears– not so fine. Dr. P. announced that there was something in my son’s ear. Thinking this was a joke, I started laughing. I mean, come on, it is April Fool’s Day, you know, and our pediatrician can be quite the comedian. Nope, this wasn’t a joke. Dr. P. left the room and returned shortly with two chuckling nurses. After a quick, painless retrieval, the good doctor dropped a small, black, plastic screw into my waiting hand. Yes, a screw. My son had a loose screw. Or a lost screw. He won’t yet fess up as to how that screw found it’s way into his ear. I don’t think he ever will, but I have a feeling this is the last loose screw we’ll find for a while.
