Is It Fryday Yet?

Uncompromising, I am. I can’t wait for the weekend…to get things done around the place. I have lots of weeds to pull and plants to trim. (Insert friends and family eye roll here) This week I had a little scare when a pinch of pain started in my chest followed by some light-headedness. I decided the responsible thing to do would be to finish my work, schedule an appointment with a cardiologist and go about the rest of my day… Except that everyone around me said I needed to get it checked out.

Have you ever been to the ER? I appreciate what they do. Nonstop emergencies, people in pain or upset/angry. It’s got to be one of the worst places to work in a hospital. And the wait time takes forever.

Just saying this right now: I make a terrible patient.

“How are you feeling?”

“Fine. I want to go home.”

“Any pain right now?”

“No. I’m bored and I really want to go home.”

I think I explained the episodes to nearly a million people in that ER. Yes. 100 million. Were they testing my memory? Checking to see if I changed my story? Or did they not bother reading the notes on the chart? Fine. Fine. I have a great attitude.

From start to finish, I knew most of the tests were useless because I wasn’t having any pain or light-headedness at that moment.

“Well, your EKG is normal.”

“Yep. Coulda told you that.”

All I was interested in was the blood work. If it came back normal, then I’d be out of there faster than the Flash in a race against Superman.

Thankfully the blood work was normal. Apparently, it was muscle pain from when I overdid it last weekend with weeding…


I meant to post this video earlier. I’d been watching Mozart in the Jungle for the sake of listening to music. In the last season, the main character was in a conducting competition. And one of the pieces in an episode was Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 in D Minor. I’m gonna leave this right here. It’s about 34 minutes long, but if you have a chance, let it play. It features conductor and pianist, Mitsuko Uchida.
