Roller Derby Tonight

I was given two tickets for tonight's match as payment for making "Purple Heart" patches for the team. Each time a team member is injured ( seriously ) they will receive one of my patches to sew on their jacket. This will be the first live match I've ever been to. I remember seeing matches on channel U when I was young. ( anyone old enough to remember channel U ? )  YIKES! I'm getting old!

Tuesday's Hops

Tuesday Tag-Along

Band-Aid ?

This morning I had a Mammogram. For those of you who have had this experience, you know what these are used for. For those who don't ( if you are faint of heart , click off this post now. We will wait........... ) For all you brave woman ( maybe some men ) who are still here, I will explain. These are placed DIRECTLY on the nipple. They look like a band-aid. Smell like a band-aid, and feel like a band-aid. The difference is, they have a metal ball on the end so the technicians will know where this particular body part is while reading your x-rays. After the procedure is finished, you return to the changing room. Now, for the dreaded band-aid rip! eekk ! Then, it was over. I wiped a bead of sweat off my upper lip and continued to put my clothes back on. I only lost one layer of skin; which in retrospect, isn't that bad. On the drive home I was longing for the earlier days when you were given authentic pasties with a silver stud on the end. You could wear those home, add a tassel and you were ready for a night out on the town.
