The Last Supper

We got together with friends last night and went to dinner at one of our favorite little Chinese places. We always look forward to the fortune cookie. Well, mine was really lame and I was whining about it, so Di gave me the one she was going to give her husband. So I traded. Just so you know, soon, I will receive pleasant news. What is with fortune cookies and horoscopes these days? The economy must be so bad, even the psychics are being frugal with their luck. Last time I had to work for what I wanted.

At dinner the subject of "my predicament" of being left handed came up. I assured them I was becoming quite ambidextrous.

Well, I'm almost off to get my hand surgically modified. I hardly slept last night so I'm looking forward to the anesthesia. I thought about the guy who went to the hospital to have his leg amputated and they cut off the wrong one. I'm thinking about writing "CTR" on my left hand. Though my surgeon is a transplant from the south and he probably doesn't know what that means.

Thank you for all your well wishes! I really, really appreciate it!

I'm just impressed you know how to spell ambidextrous (I think I spelled it right)! Wow! Just think! You will be able to use both sides of your brain! That's cool!

Just so you know, my fortune cookie hasn't come to pass yet either. Stupid fortune cookie psycics! (I can't even spell that right!)

And now, "Lefty," your hand is done! Pray for immediate pain relief and the hasty return of full functionality ... and when that fails just pop a pill! I DO wish you a speedy relief and recovery, Monkey. As long a Jared is doing the cooking, you might ask him for assistance (no pun intended) with those other things you mentioned!

You are pretty dedicated. I stopped blogging for awhile when I broke my toe, and I don't even use it to type!
