So good morning and can I just tell you that despite the fact that Ms. Kathleen has cancer and just had a massive dose of chemo yesterday she was up before me, filled with plans. They include things like going to the Lancome counter at the mall and getting extra free samples. I think someone may be hearing that Kathleen has cancer today at the Lancome counter.
Who am I to stand in the way of successful free-sample acquisitions?
We may also go and get her hair trimmed very short because she knows it's going to fall out and she wants to go there gradually until the point comes where it must be shaved. And Costco. We must go to Costco because Vicki's coming and we're going to the beach and we need food for the beach. The menu we have come up with so far is:
Caviar for Vicki.
Yogurt for Kathleen.
Chips and salsa for me.
What the hell else would we need?
And so that's what we're going to do. Get dressed, get to town, take care of business before the chemo starts to make her sick. And maybe it won't. But the odds are real good that it will so let's get this show on the road before that happens.
I am learning a lot from Kathleen. Get up early, do things you need and want to do, don't complain and use what you got while you got it.
And puree your food if it's hard to eat. That's a good one to remember.
I think I'm going to have a hard time getting around to everyone's blog here in the next few days but please know that I'm thinking about you and missing you.
Remember- my friend has cancer.
I am also learning to use the cancer card. It's powerful.
Sometimes you even get free Godiva chocolate.
Take note, people. Take note. God forbid you should ever need this advice but if the time comes, remember it and use what you got.
If life hands you cancer, make it work for all the free samples you can get.
You heard it here first.
