Sometimes I’m guilty of writing a post in which the ending is in question and then forgetting to follow-up until someone asks me, “Whatever happened with such and such?” So, here are three updates on things I haven’t talked about lately.
1.) The mysterious next-door neighbor’s invisible son. Would you believe it has been at least another month since I wrote about this and I still haven’t seen FedEx’s son!!! But the weird thing is that during the day when he is at work, I have seen lights on in his kitchen. So, maybe rather than the son being a decomposed mummy, which was my favorite explanation, he was just in a terrible industrial accident in which he was exposed to radiation. Maybe he has greenish skin that has sort of melted all over his face and body and he glows in the dark! It could be that this mysterious son only sneaks out of the house in the dead of night, wearing a mask and cape, to search the woods out back for woodchucks, which is the only nourishment he can keep down. Boy, that would be a relief! For awhile there, I was afraid something odd was going on.
2.) The quitting smoking. Remember back this summer when I decided to try using electronic cigarettes to see if they could replace regular cigarettes in my life? Well, I am very proud to report that I haven’t smoked a tobacco cigarette since June 13, 2009! Now, if you’ll recall, I never felt an urge to stop smoking like a lot of people did. But, I felt that if the e-cigs could free me of the tars and carcinogens of smoke, well, that would be great - IF, and only IF they would fulfill my oral fixation. And they have! I can honestly say that since I went with the e-cigs I haven’t had the slightest yearning to smoke a real cigarette. And I know in my heart that I never will again. As a matter of fact, since I quit regular cigarettes I’ve developed a superwoman-like sense of smell. I can be in a store and smell smoke on someone a mile away. So, do electronic cigarettes work? They sure have for me. Praise the Lord!
3.) Did my lip surgery work? On November 25th I had lip surgery to repair a varicose vein that I’ve had on my bottom lip for years, a result of much intensive dental work. Well…here is how the lip looked BEFORE
Okay, now that you’re all updated and everything, I guess we can all go take a nap. Sweet dreams!
