My Giggle For the Day

This morning, bright and early at 7:30, the General had an appointment with the podiatrist to have his final check up on the ingrown toenail he had removed.

We were the first appointment of the day, but the doctor was a tad late and the General was feeling his oats by the time the guy arrived. Fortunately, the doctor is kind of a ham himself, so it didn't really matter when the doctor arrived apologizing for his tardiness and The General said, "It's about time! The Marine Corps is waiting for me!" But he said it with a laugh, and no harm done. (Though I think this job may have gone to his head just a bit.)

Anyway, he and the doctor were talking and they were discussing that in ten years, the General might expect that he'd have to have his toenail done again, because...

Are you ready for this?

...The General's feet are showing SIGNS OF AGING!

My husband is getting to be an old man!


The doctor said the only cure for it was to quit having birthdays.

Oh man, The General showing signs of aging is just cracking me up!

What a way to start a Friday. I'm going to go buy his Christmas present today so he will be cheered up.

2 pearl(s) of wisdom:

Don't I know about ingrown toenails.

I'm such an expert in 'em, I should have a PhD (Pus, Heavily Discharged -- heh, sorry).

But now they're not much of a problem for me anymore, thanks be to a wonderful doctor who had a remedy for my problem.

If it's a sign of aging, then I began the elderly process when I was 14!!! Some peoples' toenails are just more prone, The General's included.

Aging or not, I think Tal has the cutest tootsies.

I don't remember what The General's toes looked like, but if they're like the rest of him I'm sure his tootsies are pretty cute, too! LOL!

Don't we just have the cutest hubbys?!?!?

(NOTE TO THE GENERAL - "Go Devil Dogs! Ooh Rah!" - comes from years of living in a Marine town and the granddaughter of a retired Marine. It's in my blood. Semper Fi.)
