So Friday…hubby broke his pedal. No, not the guitar pedal, not the car pedal, not the bicycle pedal. His foot — he broke his foot.
Now, after x rays, after doctors conferring, he’s literally “on ice and immobilized” until the swelling reduces enough that the orthopedist feels confident that it can be cast.
I’ve got a feeling that this isn’t going to be any of those nice take-it-off/put-it-on casts, either. I’m betting they do one of those fiberglass numbers — rigid and lots of fun in the shower. Hubs is a big man, and the joint got shattered into itty bitty pieces.
Needless to say, I’m not getting much work done. I’m not getting much of anything done. He needs lots of TLC and tending.
“Honey, can you get me a soda? …Can you get me a sandwich? Can you get my painkillers? Can you….”
So now I’m gonna be even further behind on my various need-tos/have-tos. Hubs comes first. Always. Don’t you wish every “other half” felt that way? Well, don’t marry until you and your choice are both over thirty, and then work at it. Remember, all that matters is the love, and also, when it comes to differences of perspective, is your point and your stance in the conflict worth more than your relationship? Probably not, so don’t fuss the small stuff, okay?
Several things, though: Don’t marry someone who prefers alcohol, drugs, or sports, never marry anyone who “gets physical,” and definitely do NOT marry anyone just because the sex is good. Really.
