I just talked to jobsanger and it looks like the hospital will be releasing him today. I want to thank all of his well wishers for showing him support. When I told him about the love he has been getting from his fellow bloggers, I think that put the first smile on his face since the operation.
Anyways, I have a few minutes to play around, so I'm going to share with you a few jobsanger-isms from yesterday that gave me a good laugh:
"Are you sure I can't just shake it off?" - in response to myself and two others coming to the agreement that a trip to the hospital was called for.
"I'm still not convinced that I need to be here." - in the ER, responding to my description of the baseball-sized lump on his elbow.
"But...it's the only vice I have left!" - response to the nurses who told him he needs to quit smoking.
"Not when y'all leave me alone." - answer to the nurse after she asked him if he was in any pain.
"As long as I don't have to have surgery, I'm happy" - twenty minutes before being told that he had to have surgery.
"Then you can stay." - after finding out that the nurse who just walked into the room had no plans to touch him.
My favorite came when I was walking out of his room a couple of hours before the operation. Right before I got to the door, I turned around and, without thinking, said, "Can I get you any...oh wait. They won't let you."
"Yeah, but when they do, I want some of whatever it is."
