Three Things:  
1.  I FINALLY got to the post office yesterday, with my stacks of prizes to be mailed the the Haiku contest winners, runners up, and honorable mentions.  So if you're one of those girls, keep an eye on the mailbox for a manilla envelope.  :)  The only people who haven't given me their address and therefore have gifts sitting in my closet that I, quite frankly, keep eyeing, are jessicakmalfoy  and peacefulwmn9 .  If you want prizes, send your address to persephone3333@gmail.com.

2.  The inside of the big toe on my right foot is NUMB.  As in -  it has no feeling at all.  Like it's had a little stroke.  I'm only mildly concerned.  I mean if part of me is going to have a stroke, the big toe is not a bad option, right?

3. The little boy who plays my youngest son in the play hugged me last night and asked me if he could have a BB Gun for Christmas. 

...  Uh, dude?  You have a mother.

He was so sweetly sincere, though, that I didn't laugh at him.  I looked at the director, paused and then patted him and said, "We'll see."

I have no idea if that was the right thing to do, but I figure that it couldn't really hurt.  *shrugs*

I feel:: goodgood
I hear:: Sexy Sadie - The Beatles

The toe thing? Hrm...

Did you polka too much?

I know that happens when I go on a polka bender...

Ha, freaking ha. No, it's been a couple of weeks with the toe. But my butt is sore from Polka-ing. Thank goodness I have 5 days off to recover. :)

That's really odd.

A pinched nerve, perhaps?

I'm so not touching the sore butt comment. :)

The appropriate response? "No, you'll shoot your eye out!" ^_^

LOL! That is exactly what I was thinking too. *wipes tear from laughing* What a great movie! :D

Maybe THAT's what he was talking about!

I would think a numb toe isn't really a good thing. You have a point about the stroke, but maybe you ought to get it looked at if it doesn't come back to reality soon. Just saying ...

Aw, that kid is cute. Must be fun to work with kids like that. And the stories!

Your icon - is that really a street sign? WOW!
Carrie Leigh: C is for Carriecarrie_leigh on February 13th, 2009 12:22 am (UTC)
I can't even remember where I got that icon. I thought it was funny. It looks real, doesn't it?

The odd thing is that the rest of the day, ninjas are perfectly appropriate. :)

Well sure, that makes perfect sense to me. ;)

*squee* I shall stalk my postman!

It sounds like you've pinched a tiny nerve or the blood vessels that feed that side of your toe. If it doesn't come back online soon, you might want to get it checked out. My hubby has permanent nerve damage in his bad leg and I know the issues we have with keeping the leg healthy (he can gash his leg open, be dripping blood all over my floor, and not feel a thing - not good for healing either).

You've been adopted! *giggles*

Stalk! It's coming!

I'll see what I can do about the toe. It seems like a very small thing to visit the Dr. About.

He'll be a nervous wreck by the time I'm done *eg*

It might seem like a small thing, but keep in mind that numbness could involve the nerves or the circulatory system and they're not really 'small' things ;)

You old softie (about the kid thing).

Does that mean MY thing is coming in the mail? (*is terribly excited*)
Carrie Leigh: just wickedcarrie_leigh on February 13th, 2009 12:18 am (UTC)
That's exactly what that means!

LMAO And you don't have any trouble walking with a toe out of commission?

asked me if he could have a BB Gun for Christmas.

And here I was thinking that was an intention movie reference on his part.
