Sometimes Ignorance Really is Bliss, and for that I am Thankful

6 11 2010

There are some things we are just better off NOT knowing. Last week, mama reported that she had a date with the man who came to fix her hot water tank. I’m always perplexed how the jump from “You need a new heating element” to “Let’s hop in the sack” happens…it all sounds like the plot to a low budget porno to me.

At any rate, she called last Saturday all doe-eyed and gushing over this handsome fella. “He’s a master certified RV repairman!”  Well, get him to the altar! You don’t want to be caught unprepared if the shower backs up in the Winnebago!

Now, here’s what I am thankful for. At some point between her gushy Saturday call and Monday morning, she wound up in the hospital with stroke-level high blood pressure. Once that was under control, she, for reasons unclear to me, was sent to the Mental Health Crisis Unit.


That’s right…for reasons unknown to me, both mom and her date ended up at the Crisis Center. She checked herself out and went home. (Actually, she went and spent the night with ANOTHER man, but again, the details of that are unknown to me.) Her original date is STILL a patient there.

For my ignorance on this matter, I am truly thankful.

That is just strange! At what point does the date go from dinner and a movie to ‘hey let’s go check into the psych ward’? Dude you really should write a book or a screenplay! LOL!

Bless her heart! I talked to her yesterday….for as long as I could take it without my head spinning around like on the Exorcist. At least, she is very interesting and never boring. If you ever write a book, she’s gotta be at least 3 chapters worth…something to be thankful for, ya guess? Gotta love her…

Oh yeah…she said her doctor said that she reminded her of Susan on Desperate Housewives…lol

She’s been telling me that for years. I think her doctor actually meant to say she reminded him of the mother of Toms illegitmate daughter–the one who got shot in the grocery store. The resemblence there is much stronger.

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse…

I’m with you. I really don’t understand what would cause her to end up in the psych ward. Very mysterious!
