Would You Like a Free Stress Test?

Lady: Excuse me, sir. Would you like a free stress test? We’re doing them over on 4th St.
Me: Scientology?
Lady: Nods head
Me: Get away with your bullshit.

I really hate Scientology. Really hate it. So imagine my joy when a very soccer mom-ish woman asked me that on my walk home from work today. Luckily I had been out for a walk a couple of weekends ago and found the Scientology center downtown. Unfortunately the first thing that popped out of my mouth was to basically tell her to fuck off. I realized three steps after I started walking away that I should have dropped into pirate talk and asked if she had been Touched By His Noodly Appendage. An opportunity lost. I do want to go stand in front of their “church” dressed as a pirate and hand out fliers though. Any volunteers to join me?

On another note I can finally type with two hands for more than a sentence without pain, hence this post. My ulnar nerve was caked in scar tissue, discolored, and half the size it should have been. All that’s cleaned up now so we’ll see if things actually get better. I would describe my mood since before the surgery up to now as cautious optimism and it’s going to stay that way until I know for sure if this actually worked. If it did work I’ll most likely get the left one done too and then resume the life that got derailed 4 1/2 years ago.
