Hump Day

Today was Wednesday all day long. AKA Hump Day. Cuz really really likes the GEICO commercial with the camel. I think any of the ones with the musicians at the end are only too lame. That’s why I was happy to find this.

It has the parts she likes and it all but cuts out the one I don’t.

Black Tom was present and accounted for at the breakfast table this morning. I was relieved he was still around since he was to be captured and spirited away today. More about that later.

Fresh out of the shower and blown dry, I looked at the clock and it was already after 11. Uh-oh. Had I not heard the knock on the door when my nurse friend came over? I texted her and, for good measure, sent her a private message on Facebook. She texted back she’d forgotten but she’d be “over in a few”. I unlocked the storm door and left the front door open.

It wasn’t long until she got here. I had debated putting out the almost empty vial but she’d thought she could get another ml out of it. Sure enough, with her steady hand and keen eye, she did it. I think I got a more generous ml today. When she was through, she gathered up the vial with the other garbage and put it in the trash.

She was surprised to see all the Stuff on the rebounder.

Cannulas, Tubing and Sundries

I’d looked through some of it and only found one cannula so far. There’s lots of equipment that I have no idea what it is though I’m sure I will someday. There are packets upon packets of tubing with connectors on each end. They’re both female connectors so they couldn’t be extensions for the green tubing. Some of the tubing shows it being used with a bottle to humidify the oxygen, I guess. I have a bottle with the concentrator that will do the same thing but I haven’t used it.

On up in the afternoon, I leaned my head back on the chair and thought about drifting off. Before I did, It came to mind that right about then would be when someone would call. And the phone rang. It was Cuz. Had I seen my CIL? No. She’d tried to call him but was unable to get an answer. I promised to tell him to call her when he got here.

It was a long time after that when the doorbell rang. I’ve put a dot on the button where the “sweet spot” is and he evidently figured it out. Or maybe Cuz had told him. He had my tofu and I’m to settle up with Cuz later.

After he left, I looked out several times to see if he was able to catch Black Tom. Once, he was doing something to the innards of his van. Whether he was able to catch the Patient, I don’t know. What I do know is that Black Tom didn’t show up to be fed this afternoon.

I’ve wondered how Black Tom will take being caged all night. I feel guilty that I’m putting him through this but I’d feel worse if he came home tattered and torn worse than he already has. I’m sure I should feel bad about the people who are having to live with the Captured Beast. I doubt he’s in the house, though.

The tofu was fresh and I got my “egg” salad made. I think it’s the best I’ve ever made. My sister makes really good egg salad so I asked her what she adds. I knew she put in celery once but she said she sometimes puts in chopped nuts and garlic powder. Another suggestion was olives and pickles. Mine’s good the way it is so I don’t think I’ll mess with it.

Well, Hillary won D.C. last night and got 16 delegates. Bernie ended up with four. She’s 164 pledged delegates away from the magic number. Bernie is 551 down. With superdelegates added in, Hillary has a total of 2800. Bernie with his superdelegates has 1881. Now, I’m perfectly aware that superdelegates don’t officially vote until the Convention but that’s the way it stands right now. I’m aware it could change any time, too.

Late again and, as usual, I’m outta here.

    You didn’t mention a coughing spell. I hope that means you had a better day – and night.

      Just because I don’t mention it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. I always have coughing spells. Just a routine part of my day.

    By now, Black Tom is or has been in LaLa Land … Bless you for looking out for him. He definitely knew what he was doing when he started cozying up to you… Have a beautiful day

      He was to be there three and a half hours ago so he’s probably still sort of out of it. He might not share your sentiment but since I wasn’t part of the capture, he won’t associate me with it. Kind of deceitful, eh?
