Nonsense 1. My boss, discussing an article with me, looks casually at my bookcase and sees a picture. “Oh. Is that The Sausage?” My stupid cat is a celebrity.
Nonsense 2. I just realized that the Boop Beep Boop sound that my pump makes comes from the very bottom of it. If I cover the bottom with my hand, the sound is completely muffled. Two and a half years of insulin pumping and I just found this out? I’ll admit to being fascinated.
Nonsense 3. Aware of how ridiculous it is, I’m drinking my morning coffee out of a Six Until Me. mug. I have completely lost it.
Nonsense 4. Sometimes I forget how scared to death I am of spiders. I was reminded last night, when Chris and I were leaving to go to the gym and he murmurs, “Would you look at that?” I looked up and saw the biggest spider I have ever seen IN MY LIFE hanging out on a huge web above the porch. It was the size of a cell phone and it was wearing a t-shirt that said, “Kerri for Lunch.” I completely freaked out and ran off into the yard. Chris kept edging closer to The Beast. “Am I too close, Kerri? Does this bother you? Making you nervous?” Yes Chris, it made me nervous. So nervous that when you fell asleep, I did a once-over on the bed to make sure there wasn’t a Spider Beast waiting to kill me.
(Note to readers: There wasn’t. I only found S. Sausage.)
