389. A simple “no” would suffice. Why call a person rude names?

David didn’t die. It’s possible he made a few enemies in the place just by being himself, but he didn’t die.

The procedure he went through was to zap kidney stones.

For you ladies and men with perfect kidneys out there, you may be as surprised as I was to hear that the doctor told him that he has to filter his sissy for the next week or two.

Since I try to expand my knowledge in every field  I innocently asked him if I could see one of his kidney stones if and when he pees one out.


He went nuts.

Rather than look at this simple request as evidence of my ongoing thirst for knowledge he treated me like some kind of pervert.

He just went on an on about it. He just wouldn’t stop. I didn’t want to watch him pee.  Jeeeez, what a hot head.

The rest of my day didn’t go so well either.

Divorce after a long marriage isn’t a one time blow. Every new thing that happens stings a bit until it doesn’t and then the next new thing comes along.

Yesterday dave wrote an email where he referred to me as his ex-wife.

It wasn’t a huge deal. Just another little bite.

But then I watched a video of a baby elephant going into the ocean for the first time and I was all happy again.

  1. YAAAAY! You never disappoint with a happy ending!! C a r o l F r e d e t t e w w w . c a r o l f r e d e t t e . c o m

  2. Ouch…my sympathies go out to David, truly. Kidney stones! Like the elephant, we too have a hard time forgetting some things and the memories that make us sad seem to hang on forever. Hang in their Mattie, the day will come when it won’t sting and the word *ex* will roll off your tongue. Especially if you vehemently spit when you say it.

  3. Awww so know what u mean about the baby elephant!!!
    But ewwwww , who’d wanna see someone’s kidney stone!! Have to agree with David on that one!!!

  4. I “bing-ed” kidney stone photos -ugly little (to medium) things – decided not to include the link for you. Here’s something a bit more fun. Play twice.

  5. Coveting his kidney stones, is he? If I can dig up that Polaroid of one of my many stones, I’ll post it for you. No big deal….tell him that 😉
