The Weekly Wonderings #94

1. Last Thursday, someone asked me the date, and I answered, "January 22 or Day 3 of Obama."

2. That got me thinking: exactly how long will our brains -- okay, my brain -- have me make that connection? I figure it will stop sooner than the ease of doing the math will end.

3. Then I saw a button on someone's blog which is tracking the days. Oops, now I'll maybe just know for the length of his term. Blech.

4. How come when I'm out and about and waiting for long periods of time during the day, I forget to bring a book to read?

5. Because that book that is in my purse -- a Magic Treehouse edition -- really doesn't cut it.

6. Just to add insult to injury, I scheduled my annual mammogram in the midst of all the other health crap going on for me.

7. Did you know that my super fab, fairly spankin' new local hospital schedules mammograms as late as 8:40 p.m.? I didn't know either, but that was when my appointment was earlier this week.

8. But if your mammogram shows something funky, you have to go during regular hours when the radiologist is there. So guess where I'll be Tuesday morning?

9. Now, now, don't worry. I'm not really worried. I'm sure it's totally innocuous, the re-check.

10. The fact is, they wanted me to come in Monday morning at 9:30 a.m. Sorry, Springsteen tickets for opening night of his tour go on sale at 10 a.m. Dude, priorities, right?

I hope the re-check shows nothing wrong. Good luck and think 'warm'.

Yes, priorities! Good luck getting the tickets. Like you need any, huh?

I, too, hope the re-check shows nothing wrong. Bring a non Magic Treehouse book, ok?

It's not so bad. I went through this about two months ago. Is this your first "mapping of the territory"?

I have never had a mammo that was normal. Never. And each and every time I go in there with my heart in my mouth for a re-check and it is all okay. Whew.

Try to stay calm.

I love that you're putting Springsteen tickets before a mammogram. I would, too.

Here's to a good re-check. And prime seats for the show.

Sending you good vibes for the second boobie smash.

I hope the recheck shows nothing. My first mammogram which was supposed to be the baseline came up positive. It turned out to be nothing, but it involved numerous mammograms and a trip to the surgeon. I will be sending positive vibes your way.

A couple of months ago, I saw a client I hadn't seen for a number of months. Like more than a dozen people have in the recent past, she ...
