Arm's Length

So, hubby just got done with yet another medical appointment (he should host Mystery Diagnosis with all the stuff he's got going on with his bod). When I picked him up from the appointment, there were several ominous signs that something was desperately wrong:

1. Instead of getting in the front passenger seat, where I had a pretzel and an Orange Julius waiting for him, he climbed all the way back to the third row. Please note: Hubby doesn't climb. Ever. Although once when he mixed two un-mixable medications he did hurdle the couch. And I have it on video.

2. He told me one of us would have to sleep on the couch tonight. Hmmm, guy with bad back or girl who's 6 months prego. You be the judge.

3. I winked at him in the mirror and he told me not to get fresh, that I wouldn't be seeing even so much as a hug from him anytime soon.

Impending divorce? Nope, radioactive husband. It's true. The doc told him that he was radioactive from the test he just had and that, since I'm pregnant, he has to stay at least an arm's length away from me for at least 24 hours. How big of a dose did they give him, geez!

Well that's unusual - maybe he'll get super powers now - like Spiderman:)

Okay, THAT is crazy. I can't believe the doctor really said that! And btw, what's with the pretzel and orange julius? Talk about awesome wife award- You're making us all look bad, Lecia (;

at the end there I wanted to say Leash but I'm not sure if I would've spelled that right. Lec doesn't look right and neither does Lesh. You tell me what you'd prefer cause I personally like calling you that (but never get to via blog since I don't know how to spell it)

hmm, very thought provoking question Connie. There's really no right or wrong answer, but I agree that Leash could be misconstrued, so I think I'd probably go with Leesh.

If someone's going to get something weird like radiation poisoning-it would be hubby....Tell him he needs to eat more cake!

Good call with the double ee's... for some reason that hadn't even crossed my mind :p
