Of missing persons

I got to hang out yesterday with an old friend I haven’t seen in a while, and he informed me that a mutual acquaintance (a newspaper editor we both knew, someone who was married to a friend) has been missing for a year. His car was found parked near the Golden Gate bridge and it’s […]

Yay

Happy to report that I spoke to the auto mechanic I use for big jobs (because he lives 50+ miles away) and he told me quite firmly that he did not believe I needed a new AC condenser. He told me to get the coolant replaced and see what happens. A load off my mind! […]

Squeezed

You feeling that pressure? Feel like you’re in a vise? That’s this April. That’s this frigging grand cardinal cross and the April 15th total lunar eclipse. Ugh. All of a sudden, I need new glasses. (My doctor pointed out that I practically put my face into the computer screen, and it’s probably not helping the […]

Dream

This was a funny one, because it was such an obvious pastiche of other things. I was walking in Cornwall (where they film BBC’s “Doc Martin”) by myself, and to get to where I was going, I had to slide under a hole in the rocky cliffs to get through (my recent MRI). While I […]

My father’s voice

Fortunately, this time nothing’s broken. And after all these years, I still hear my father yelling, “What the […]

Trapped

Just got home after getting an MRI on my neck. They asked me if I’m claustrophic (I’m not) but I didn’t realize it would be like getting wedged into a horizontal well for a half-hour. Now I know why I see all these ads for open MRIs! Bookmark It

1:24

So I was asleep the other night and was awakened by the sound of a gunshot, a really LOUD gunshot. But it wasn’t outside, it was both inside my head and outside, right next to my left ear. I glanced over at the bedside table — it was 1:24 a.m. I got up in the […]

Blood test

I had to go early this morning to get my thyroid tested at Northeastern Hospital, which is now part of Temple’s health system. The nurse who took my blood was listening to Miles Davis. I looked at her and said, “Oh, thank God, real jazz.” Because I really hate smooth jazz. It makes my skin […]
