All He Got Was Neither Of These

Okay, so my ever-lovin’ husband has been in the hospital and guess what I bought him to make him feel better. Absolutely nothing. Since I had his wallet while he was laid up, nothing is exactly what he wanted.

Here are two specific things I didn’t get him. This, which was almost more than I could resist, from Society6.

And this, a disappointingly commercial exploitation of the meme-alicious Grumpy Cat.

grumpyGuess what Charlie was in the hospital for. Guess what kind of patient he was.

This being Tuesday, I’m posting at Fatal Foodies with a recipe for pesto, vegetarian and vegan.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write a story with a hospital in it.


I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Thanks for the interesting report on Charlie.
    Here’s hoping he gets home soon.

    I COULD guess the obvious answers given the clues in the photos Marian, but I’m going out on a limb here and say stabbing pains (in his wallet – where else – his neck?) and the nursing staff all said he was the perfect patient (AFTER the duct tape was applied around his ankles, wrists and mouth) LOL 😀 😀 😀
