Strange Days Have Found Us

Here are some yellow flowers in a sea of green.

Well, Kids. I had kind of a weird day today. It started out with me passing out at my doctor's appointment this morning. I'm one of those people who faints easily. My Doctor wasn't worried. She thought it was probably just one of those things where my knees locked and then I was down for the count. On the plus side...My blood pressure was back down again, from being too high a few months ago, and because I've lost so much weight lately, my doc gave me the go ahead to eat as much fatty food as I needed to get it back up. Woooo-hooooo!

As soon as I got to work, I found out my bosses were pulling us all out individually to talk to us about speaking to each other respectfully. We're like a huge dysfunctional family at my office and we flip each other shit all day, but we don't really mean it...Much. What? Just because I call John, Mr. Freakerman? At least I refer to him as mister. On the plus side...One of the women I work with said she'd bring duct tape for all of us to put over our mouths. You know, if we have to say something nice, we can't be trusted to say anything at all.

Things got better after work. I ran and listened to the songs on my phone. (there was some strange twist of fate, and it let me download 39 more songs into it before I got the error message again) I took a shower and then headed over to Mr. Dateman's place. We talked a lot of shit and he made me laugh like he always does...As an additional plus, Mr. Dateman reminded me to watch for deer on my drive home, and for whatever reason, I love it when he does that.

I have a bit of a cold, but I couldn't take any medicine for it last night because I was afraid it might raise my blood pressure. Tonight, though? Tonight, I'm planning to go get all hopped up on Nyquil and hope tomorrow isn't quite so friggin' weird.

Hope you feel better soon..

So your doctor is saying you have become TOO healthy? That must be nice.

Margaret said...

i'm jealous of the eat whatever you want pass the doc gave you!

I'd love to have my doctor tell me that I can eat some fatty foods. Don't know why I need permission, though, I do it anyway.
You should try Coricidin HP for colds and flu. It's designed specifically for people who have high blood pressure. It's the only thing I take when I need it, because it doesn't mess up my thyroid and the meds that treat it. Cuz I can't take Nyquil for that reason.

Oh, I don't like when management takes on the job of running the nursery. They want to eliminate shit flipping, then they create an environment where we don't have to entertain ourselves just to make it through the day. (I actually have a big old issue with bad management that tries to put the burden on the staff, but I thought it would be really good to limit myself to whatever fit in this little block and

I used to pass out all the time when I was younger. I havent for a while now. No matter where I am, it always makes the rest of the day or week weird. Kind of surreal. Hope you are okay

Michelle said...

Weird days are kinda fun, although perhaps fainting wasn't so much fun.. When you mentioned the doctor telling you could eat as many fatty foods as you'd like...mmmm...I've been craving a hamburger since yesterday and it made me think of it, so I'll be taking your doctor's within the next hour :)
And Mr. Dateman sounds like a nice guy. Watch out for deer! ;)

I guess if you are going to pass out, the doctor's office is the place to be. I'm glad to hear you are healthy though. I am trying to wrap my head around the concept of losing too much's freaking me out.
I sure like the sound of Mr. Dateman!

Poptart said...

Hmmm, when I saw you those many months ago, you didn't have any weight to lose! You must be tiny!

Liz said...

I think that passing out would be cool. I've never done it, but would like too. But only if I could do it in a very lady-like way. I am prone to make a big production out of things and can see me now- the dramatic fall, accompanied by a moan, taking the table out with me, waking up with stiches. It would be as clumsy and comedic as a serious injury can be. Hey. Anything to get out of work.

I love when the touchie-feelie HR types decide that the employees are having too much fun and want everyone to be nice and behaved. Where I work we have had the same individual meeting regarding our conduct, blechhh! We play nice, just in a mean way. Can't "they" see that?

Churlita said...


Thanks. I'm working on it.


I think it's more that I'm too skinny, but my cholesterol is good enough to handle eating some bacon in order to beef up.MMMM, bacon.


I never thought I'd ever get that pass, but I'm running with it.


Thanks for the tip.

Booda Baby,

It sounds like we have the same issue.


Surreal is a good way to describe it.


Go eat a burger.

Mr Dateman is a nice guy.


It's weird because it's not a common problem for me either.


I've lost almost 20 lbs since I saw you. I don't like being skinny.


I don't do anything in a lady-like way. Think more Chevy Chase as Gerald Ford. Unseemly.


This was brought upon by a guy in my office trying to stir shit up. So, one guy sucks and we all suffer. Meh.

My doctor routinely tells me to have a steak and to wash it down with a milkshake. Sometimes, I feel like asking if he's buying.

Churlita said...


Maybe he's hitting on you. You SHOULD ask him if he's buying.
