Giving My Wife a Good Ribbing

My wife is back in town, her mother is doing better, and I have clean underwear again. All is well in the world. Except...

My wife was sitting on the floor in front of the couch doing her cross-stitch while we watched the baseball game. (Thank heavens for a woman who loves baseball!) She turned to push herself up and made a terrible shrieking noise--obvious pain.

It was still so bad the next day that she went to the doctor for help. They took x-rays and, wouldn’t you know it, she had dislocated a rib. By getting up off the floor. Who knew you could dislocate a rib? That’s like dislocating your head. Or your butt. A rib?

First, she goes to the hospital for high blood pressure. Then her mother has a stroke. Now a dislocated rib. What’s next?

Maybe I shouldn’t have asked that question.

I blame the cross stitch. I hear it increases the chances of contracting the herpes virus too.

OUCH! I did not know that was even possible. I did have a Polish lab mate that tried to tell me that I could hurt my girlie parts (and possibly sterilize myself) by lifting something too heavy. "ow, I think I pulled my fallopian tube!"

Here's wishing her a speedy recovery.

swf--we all know you're not kidding.

monkey--funny, my wife DOES have herpes.

g-dog--thanks to your "fallopian tube" line, my desk is now covered in snot.
