Tracy asked how the boyfriend was with the skinny dipping. He turned out to be okay. I think he's reserved. He did fine w/the skinny-dipping. He was expecting it. I don't think it was really his thing as he had some trouble getting into the water, complaining about the cold. The rest of us were swimming around like a bunch of slightly tipsy minnows.
I still hope for Aileen's sake that he is a more interesting person than he let on. But i won't write him off yet either. Sometimes people grow on you. Right (she said hopefully) ?
Next weekend is the breast cancer 3-Day walk for the Seattle area. Em and i are walking in it, and so we met with our other team members at my mom's house on Sunday morning because she lives right on the Burke-Gilman trail, a great place for walking long distances. My mom greets my friend, Nicole, whom she has never met before, by saying "Oh, i'm fine because just i just found out yesterday morning that i don't have breast cancer." I don't think this would bug you as much as it did me because you don't know what a fucking martyr my mother can be.
She got a call back on her mammogram for an ultrasound. Just so you can know what a terrible daughter i am, that happens to me everytime i get a mammogram because i have something they like to refer to as "dense breasts". I don't think they are any dumber than anyone elses breasts, but that's what they say. (Ha ha, me so funny.) And my mother has had breast cancer and has had a mastectomy. So i could sure as hell be less of an unfeeling bitch. But really, what is Nicole supposed to say to that ice breaking comment?
"Gee it's nice to meet you Mrs. Menosmom. Wow, that's great. You must be so relieved. Myself, i just found out this morning that i don't have an obstructed bowel."
