So, without further ado, I give you, if I don't fall asleep, reverb 30.
***Prompt: Gift. This month, gifts and gift-giving can seem inescapable. What's the most memorable gift, tangible or emotional, you received this year?
(Remember these were given out in December, hence the tone of the question.)
This last year. Tangible, sounds silly, but it was my jeans from Mom and Dad, it was 'living proof' that I had been taking care of myself.
Also, Husband willing to be a chauffeur to a place he didn't need to go to, to be at a concert he didn't want to go to, and take it all good naturedly.
And since that was way short, let's see, a memorable gift I had...
I remember being a super, super studious student, and found out I needed my wisdom teeth removed. ALL 4 OF THEM. I decided that I would have them out over Christmas break, all at once. There was a little apprehension, but the dentist agreed, and the deed was done.
I seem to remember not feeling anything for about a half hour, then the Novocaine wore off. Then Mom and Dad gave me (I believe Tylenol with Codeine?) a pain pill. After that point, I think someone could have covered me with duck feathers, danced a conga on the bed, and landed a small plane by my bedroom, I probably wouldn't have noticed. This went on for several days...
Christmas rolled around, and the only thing I remember is receiving a gorgeous jade circle necklace. It was so pretty, I think I remember crying. The fog commenced its return, and I don't remember much else until a few days later, when I remember Mom experimenting with solid food and the blender. Lots of the stuff was quite good. Some, better left undescribed.
I am, however, a little vague on the duck feathers, conga lines, and landing aircraft...
