Apparently, I have a few things to learn in the revenge department. Live and let live is a decent enough adage to follow through life and under most circumstances, will stand me in good stead. However, sometimes I have to resort to being underhanded to get what I want.
Empress Bee had a lovely story to tell about a neighborhood thief who kept swiping her newspapers that she had paid for. I loved how she handled the problem and put an end to petty, yet annoying theft.
Green with envy over how someone could bring a peaceful, if not messy, end to her problem, I think I channeled her a bit today. Mr. Larger Than Life is getting his pacemaker tomorrow afternoon. The hospital called me today with his instructions. Just the basics: be at the hospital at 12:30, nothing to eat or drink after 8 AM, take morning medications, shower well the night before.
Wait, wait, wait. What was that last item? A shower the night before?
This man has not showered since his wife died 5 years ago.
I'll let you digest that.
Now use your imagination to consider how things must be smelling in and around him. A necessity bath only goes so far, and I was not going to lose the opportunity to freshen things up a bit.
Thanks, Bee. I hope it works.
