This is the smile Bossy is trying to plaster on her face even though her husband just told her he can’t find the receipt Bossy handed him only one week ago, and even though Bossy and her husband are supposedly becoming more financially organized, and that sound you hear is Bossy’s theory of receipt collection fluttering out the window.
Raise your hand if you think Bossy’s smiley face looks like Kermit the Frog! Or maybe Bossy is trying to distract you from the rest of this post.
The rest of this post: You may already know Bossy is a jogger, and as a jogger she has recently been struggling with a little sports-related condition known as ingrown toenail, which has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Bossy is old as a grandmother and now peppers many conversations with phrases like, “My podiatrist, oy, my podiatrist,” because nothing makes a person feel young and sexy like talking about their podiatrist.
Anyway. Bossy’s podiatrist resolved this sports-related ingrown toenail issue for Bossy at the beginning of the winter, but the problem returned, and so last week Bossy drove back to his office where the podiatrist peeled away Bossy’s face and twisted it up and over her head — or at least that’s the way it felt since Bossy’s sadistic podiatrist failed to use any spray novocaine.
Bossy returned home with a little bandaid on her toe and resumed activity per usual, where activity per usual equals who saw the Oprah show about that woman and the flesh-eating bacteria that digested the entire right side of her body after she barely nicked herself with a kitchen knife?
Unlike Bossy’s last appointment with her podiatrist, oy her podiatrist, this time Bossy’s toe never really stopped hurting — and so now Bossy assumes he missed a little sports-related something during her last appointment. This means Bossy has to return for yet another appointment, and the smiley face you see above represents the receipt for Bossy’s $30 medical insurance co-pay, which she will no doubt have to pay all over again when she returns to his office for the follow-up, except this time Bossy will insist on soaking in an anesthesia bath.
