Fodder for My Own Blog

Four prescription bottles are waiting on the kitchen counter.

A vat of chocolate pudding is waiting in the refrigerator.

Bryan and the kids are waiting to capture all photographic and video evidence.

Mama's goin' on pain meds tomorrow, and they cannot wait.

Their memories of my post-surgery, drugged up behavior is fresh in their minds.

Almost like it happened yesterday.

They were woefully unprepared for the experience.

This time, Bryan has promised to get it all on video for them.

I'm guessing it won't be quite as much fun, though.

This time, I'm having oral surgery.

The periodontist will be cutting out some of my gums around two of my wisdom teeth.

Stitches will be involved.

Between the stitches and the swelling, I can't imagine I'll be doing much talking.

But there will be pain meds.

And when there are pain meds, there will be pudding.

And when there are pain meds and pudding, an embarrassing photo can't be far behind.

I'll keep you posted.

Have a lovely day!


  1. Can't wait! I mean, I'm sorry you're having surgery.

  2. Tell Brian I'd be happy to assist him if he needs help uploading to YouTube. Hahahaha! I kid. Sorta. ;)

    Hope things go smoothly.

  3. Sorry you're having dental surgery and I hope the pain meds work for you, but I can't wait for the photos! :)

  4. Ooohhhh, that is good stuff! Maybe your video will make the Ellen show.

  5. write this down: 'toasters don't talk', 'semi-horizontal is good' and 'the people in the TV are not nearly as real as the people with the towels, ginger ale and pudding'

    good luck!

  6. Ooh ouch hope you feel better soon...can't wait to see the pics awww

  7. Ooh ouch hope you feel better soon...can't wait to see the pics awww

  8. Prayers for a quick and uneventful recovery!

  9. Your last pain medication post was hiliarious! I'm sure the next one will be just as good!! Prayers for a good surgery and quick recovery!!

  10. I've had this done and it's not that bad. I went on a cruise to a yacht club and had a great time two days after this procedure. You will notice the sutures getting loose at some point. That means the swelling has gone down. I think the first day I took a pain pill and then didn't after that. I hope you have it as easy as I did.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  11. Prayers for little pain and quick recovery! At least you can amuse the children with your loopiness....

  12. Ohhh I hope it all goes really smoothly and straightforwardly, and that you heal soon. *hugs*

  13. Good luck. I hope the swelling isn't awful and the pudding tastes delicious.


Thank you for taking the time to tell me what you're thinking!
