Okay, this has absolutely nothing to do with Stephen Colbert whatsoever, but I’m blogging this from my Macbook Air at Baylor Medical emergency room. Minor emergency apparently. It’s the almost end of a great date night gone horribly awry. I’m fine, but hubby won’t be roller skating for a while.
I was on a date with my very cute husband. He and I were full of southern fried Babe’s Chicken goodness and decided to work off some gravy at the roller skating rink. We got some skates a couple of weeks ago and went on our first skating lesson last week. Hubby is very new to roller skating and I haven’t skated in a while, so we looked goofy as hell but were having a good time. Hubby was rolling towards the seats to sit down after skating a bit, and he lost his balance and twisted his ankle as he went down. Luckily for us, there were two EMTs who were skating at the rink, and they were able to wrap his ankle and help him to the car. We were 30 minutes away from home, and we decided to go to the hospital closest to home because it happens to be the best hospital in town.
So here I am, blogging on my Macbook Air as hubby is flipping through about 18 whole cable channels. When we first got in the little room, Fox News was on the TV and we were both like, “Oh hell no!” We should be hearing something soon as the X-rays have already been taken. Hubby has told his “I broke my wrist 20 years ago” story to every RN and orderly that’s come in the door. They just gave him some hydrocodone, so he should be having lots of fun here pretty soon.
Okay, that’s enough self-indulgence for now. Just felt like sharing a bit.
