Mimi's Anatomy

They say I don't need this.
They say I will feel better without it. So tomorrow morning, I will lose part of my pride anatomy. But let's look on the bright side (that was for you, Trav) It's really not my color anyway. I'm sure the organs above and below it could use the room. They must feel cramped from time to time. It's been a slow year for the economy. The nurses and hospital staff might appreciate my business And for heaven's sakes, it looks like a car part.

How fortuitous that I have only one. I'd hate to feel lopsided for the rest of eternity.
And I thought I could deal with losing the lovely balloon-shaped food masher until.....

"You want me to do what?"

"Okay, Miss Pencil Skirt, it's time to talk to the man who is going to put you to sleep."

"I am not a dog."
"Of course, you're not a dog, Miss Skirt...I just mean that....well...he's the anesthesiologist."

"You've been reading my blog, haven't you?"
"Your blog?"

"Everybody on the internet knows that baby boy can spell dog. Are you trying to say he can't spell anesthesiologist? Cause he can ya know.....he can!

"I can spell a.n.e.s.t.h.e.s.i.o.l.o.g.i.s.t. too. See?
"Now, let's go over your instructions for tomorrow's surgery.
#1 NO food or water after midnight, no alcohol beverages, no smoking, no fun. #2 DO NOT wear make-up, nail polish, jewelry, or anything metal in your hair..
**Mimi raises hand**
"Excuse me, but I don't think I can do that."
Ever been ignored? I so hate that.

#3 If you have long hair put it up with a plain rubber band.

Do you realize, Bloggy People, that I had to go purchase one plain rubber band?
That brought the grand total of this little vacation to $2,000,000,000,000
and one cent.
#4 Remove all metal from your body.
And then the earrings had to go. This is too much trauma for me.
I'd better go to sleep now.

I will see you when I wake up.

If not before.

Hope you don't see any pink bunnies hopping by...:)
Wishing you a speedy recovery!!!

Quick, somebody rush ship a plastic crown to Mimi so she can enter the operating room in the style becoming of a Queen . . . well, sort of.

Finding Pam said...

You won't miss it and hopefully you will feel better soon. Is Homer going to spend the night in the hospital with you.

A queen must have her people! I will keep you in my prayers.

The things hospitals and doctors do for the economy?

Charles Gramlich said...

Surgeries surgeries everywhere. Lana will have one soon. NOt the same one. I hope you recover quickly. Good thoughts are winging your way.

I'd like to make a cutting comment but I can't think of one. The gall!
I hope they're not taking the p*ss.

Saying a prayer for you...

I've had that organ removed myself. Your other organs will appreciate it trust me.
Rubber bands? Are they serious? Like people keep those things laying around the house in this day and age. Sheesh.
I wish you well!

Bond said...

So all the piercings had to be removed...

that must have taken hours!


Jean-Luc Picard said...

Wake up, Mimi!!!!!

Akelamalu said...

Feel all that Reiki begging you to let it in? Well let it in! xxxx

Jamie said...

Sweet dreams about the weight you lose tossing the unnecessary organ. You will be more svelt than ever in your pencil skirt.

Mojo said...

Now why is it that I have to find out about this on your BLOG??

I mean sheesh Mimi... you couldn't drop that in a text or an email or a call: "Oh BTW I'm having surgery."

This is just too freaky. I spent most of today in the day surgery center at Rex with my mother who wasn't having a kidney stone removed.

Felicitas said...

I hope your surgery goes well and that you are feeling much better very soon!

Julia Smith said...

Sending a prayer for a speedy recovery. I agree with Jeff B - a plastic crown will do for now and will remind the hospital staff to bow in your presence. Also to back out of the room. And to bring you all items on a plush royal cushion with gold trim.

Michelle said...

awww, surgery? This year has been a doozy!

I hope you're up and back bounding down the castle corridors soon.

gentle post-op (((hug)))

Ferd said...

I've been hard at work this past week, lost in my own little world, and totally oblivious to your ordeal!
Bummer! About the earrings, nail polish, makeup, and metal parts, I mean. I would HATE to go anywhere without my metal parts!
My condolences on the loss of your little gall bag!
Be well!

The Gal Herself said...

Now I know how people who watch Fox felt when they saw Obama bowing to another head of state. You are NOT Ms. Pencil Skirt, at least not around these parts! You are our monarch. They diss you, they diss us. I don't appreciate it.

Let me know if you lost any weight. Maybe I can get something removed so I come closer to my ideal weight.

And please, get well soon! We run amok without you!

Mimi Lenox said...

Thank you everyone. The surgeryt went well. I am home recuperating for a couple of weeks. Slowly getting around and taking it easy. Homer is helping. I find that he cooks a mean grilled cheese sandwich. Maybe I should trust him with Thanksgiving dinner....Be back as soon as I feel like it. Have a Happy Holiday!~ Mimi

Anndi said...

Homer cooking the turkey, eh? Can't be worse than when you... um... nevermind.
