Happy October!

Finally have the time to get back to writing.  Oy.

In order to keep this from being boringly short, I'm going to share an older anecdote:

I had been spending the night at a friend's house; up late, chatting, the usual.  She wants to show me something.

A few moments later, she puts this small, whitish, egg shaped item in my hand.  Looks a lot like a candied almond.  I'm holding it, trying to figure out if I should eat it, try to guess what it is, etc.

After a few more moments she told me what it was.

'It's my gall stone."

GAH. I almost ate someone else's gall stone.

She keeps it in a small cardboard jewelry box as a memento.  In the cotton batting.

I almost ate it.

I'm not quite sure what that says about either of us, but there you go.


  1. ROFLMAO! "That was the crunchiest Jordan almond I've ever eaten in my life!" "SHIT, THAT WASN'T A JORDAN ALMOND?!?!?"

    I'm still laughing ... omg ...

  2. aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    NO WAY
    OMG hahahahaha

  3. Mrs RJ has all manner of bits in formaldehyde from her and her cats. Freaks me out and I love her.

    I cannot imagine how freaked I would be by holding a gallstone.
