October 29, 2007 - Monday It’s only funny if it isn’t you.
For days Bill and Erica have been badgering me to get a flu shot this year. I've never gotten a flu shot, and I've been dragging my feet. With all the fires and nothing to do I finally decided to call for a flu shot, but because of the fires, they weren't giving them at this time. So there I am walking toward Albertson's when I see the big Flu Shot sign on the front of their building. Only I can't see it well because it is folded down so I'm walking with my head tipped to the left and then it happened... I tripped over the blue handicap curb and went sprawling flat in front of the store. OOOh my left foot and wrist and knee hurt, but I quickly could tell nothing seemed to be broken. I was helped up so I could go rest and fill out an accident report. The manager came and brought me ice for my foot. Then she asked "is there anything else I can do for you?" Without missing a beat I said "could you get me a medium onion and some dill weed." She returned and I asked, "is that dried dill weed?" "Oh, you don't want fresh?" the manager asks. She quickly takes it and returns with the dried dill weed. I hobbled out of the store after paying for it. When I tell my daughter she is laughing hysterically. I must say I failed to see the humor. As far as I'm concerned Flu shots are hazzardous!
I am blessed to live in San Diego. People come here for a vacation and I get live here all year long. I taught 2nd grade for 43years and retired in 2013.I still volunteer in a 2nd grade at my school every Thursday. I have two grown daughters that are a very important part of my life. I am married a wonderfully patient man with two daughters a son and two granddauhters, and we live with two very entertaining cats. While I enjoy champagne at a wedding or special occasion , I do not need alcohol to have fun and it is never an option if I am upset. I truly can find joy in simple pleasures. I do not drink coffee, I am so blessed to take care of my youngest granddaughter once a week. She calls me Gamma and Bill is Popi. Hearing her say her names for us brings such joy to my heart.
