Yesterday morning we said our daily morning goodbyes as she stumbled off to work and I dragged myself outta the house to get some work in as well. "Hope You Feel Better" was the theme, has been the theme actually this entire past week since Monday morning, when we both awakened with sore throats. Her in Louisiana, I in Mississippi.
Yesterday evening we spoke by phone and she informed me she was heading over to the after hours clinic for a shot right after work as she just couldn't take it anymore, poor soul, she could barely speak, her throat hurt her so.
"Wanna come with me and get a shot too?" is what she asked. The date was on!
As the day progressed and we both continued to feel like ga ga, our Friday night date couldn't get there any sooner.
I thought about going to the doctor on Thursday as I was just having trouble shaking this cold or whatever I had, even though the Zicam I was taking every friggin' three hours seemed to help some, but thus certain symptoms persisted.
Man, where the heck is she, its twenty 'til six now, I'm ready for my big date already!
I get a phone call, she's swooping on by to pick me up in ten minutes, the date is on!
We drive over to the clinic, sign in and wait two hours or so to be seen. Of course I can't sit still and am blabbering about this and that, because you see, she can't do any blabbering cause of her sore throat, hurts too bad to talk.
She leans over against me and we have a snuggle, waiting and a waiting to see the doctor, each of us feeling worse by the minute.
Our names are finally called, whoopee, we get to go into another waiting room! More snuggling.
We were very impressed with this clinic's thoroughness. So after a total of three and a half hours we were sent on our way, prescriptions in hand.
What a date, but it was, kinda sorta. We haven't been able to spend this much time together in a good while.
There would be no kiss goodnight though, well a peck on the cheek, if that counts.
You see, my wife was diagnosed with strep throat, me with pneumonia. We got some good snuggling in and had some laughs about our pathetic date. Here's hoping to a better date, next time, oh well.
