Back From the Doc

And I have just one question...

Why do they have to poke and poke at the sore spot? I mean, first the tongue depressor, sharp edge gouging into my big old abscess. Ow! Ow! Ow! Me, pulling back, recoiling. Then the gloved finger goes in and poke, press, poke, again. Then the fingers, poking outside on my cheek. A couple of times. The "OW!" and the reflexive shrinking from touch isn't enough of a signal that you are hurting me? I mean, you can tell by looking that the thing that it has to hurt... But still, you need to poke.

And poke.

And poke.


I know... A doc needs to get the full scope of the situation. And that means poking. I just needed to bitch a bit. lol

I am now the proud owner of a bottle full of Amoxycillin (or howeverthefuckyouspellthat) capsules. I have taken my initial double dose and I am hoping that this kills this infection, fast. And yes, I am going to find a dentist. And make an appointment. And go. I now have no choice, do I? My mouth is trying to tell me something and it is time to listen.

I have to tell you, tho... I would rather have a sleepover with the Evil Triad than go to the dentist. :P

I am a badass black widow stomping bitch. We got home and there was a black widow in a web in the corner of the garage. The big, strong, tough-guy men were standing there, looking at it, talking about Raid and shovels and all kinds of ways that they could kill it without having to actually go near it. About that time she headed down web to go hide in the crack at the base of the wall. When she got closer to the floor, I just stomped on her ass and dragged the black, nasty spider juice out across the garage floor.

Job done.

Black widow vanquished.

Big, strong, tough-guy men safe.

You should have seen their faces. lolol They were fascinated and horrified. And William couldn't believe that I actually stomped the bitch. Hey, I just wanted her dealt with. And I didn't want her making babies that could come crawling into my house in the time it took those two pussies to debate spider extermination tactics. So, I took care of her.

Guess it would have sucked if, instead of stomping on her, she had got up my pant leg...

I am going to get a cup of java and some lunch. I am hongry. And I need coffee. So, I'll talk to you later. :D


  1. lol isn't it wonderful how doctors are always like that?

    oh, it hurts? *takes out a chainsaw to examine it with*

  2. Does it hurt if I poke it over here? How 'bout here? What about this? *jab* sheesh! Hope it clears up soon.

    You are my spider stomping hero!

  3. The sore-jabbing sucks. The spider story gives you the bonus round. :)

  4. Yep, sometimes you've just gotta jump in and have the balls in the family. I'm impressed!

    Hope the tooth/gum feels better. Have you tried rinsing with salt water?

  5. Widows are endemic here, too. Scared the shit out of me when I first moved here. I've only killed one in 30+ years, but I still feel guilty. They're absolutely gorgeous in real life. Photos don't do them justice.

    You're brave, woman. What girly-men those two are. You've shown what a REAL woman can be! lol

    Glad to see you back in the saddle. I was getting worried.

  6. So glad to see you taking the bull by the horns with owies and illnesses and dentists and weight. You rock, Erika!

  7. Sorry about the abscess, Erika. I hope you feel better soon.
