Eleventy Billion And One

Conversation in my kitchen this morning:

John: “Are you on your way to your Iconoclast infusion?”

Me: “It's Reclast*, not Iconoclast, but yes.” (He also calls Tessalon cough pills “Teflon pills”.)

John: “Were you intending to wear your slippers?”


Me: “Why yes, apparently I was.”

That my friends, is the eleventy billionth and eleventy billionth and one reasons why we have to stay married to each other. He makes sure that I don't go out in public in my jammies and slippers, and I make sure he knows the right names for prescription drugs.

*Reclast is the infusion I get once a year to treat osteoporosis.

  1. I went to an end of school party one year in my house slippers. Did not notice until I happened to look down during dinner. What the heck, summer vacation had started! 🙂 Nice to have a partner who looks out for you.

  2. Hey – those slippers pass for street wear – much better than some things that sear my retinas these days. But what a sweet marriage!
