This & That Including What Ails

Humanly Possible & And So The Story Goes #38

I had my stay extended at Bates Motel to receive not one, BUT THIRTEEN injections into my neck.

It was an excruciating experience that I never knew I could go through it. 

Thankfully in 15 minutes it was over as Dr Boey’s hands were skillfully deft and swift. 

It is often said that the doctor’s hands are pivotal. 

Dr Boey is my anaesthesiologist and when I had him manage me during my cervical corpectomy, he told me that inserting the rubber tube into my lungs must be done well else it is game over for me with instant paralysis.

This scared me out of my wits๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜จbut thankfully it was non eventful.

Useful Fact on Anaesthesiologist that I would like to share:

[Anaesthesiologists are medical doctors who specialize in giving patients anesthesia. Anesthesia is only given to patients who undergo surgery to relieve pain or to put these patients to sleep for the duration of the surgery. 

An anaesthesiologist provides care to their patient before, during and after a surgery.]

When Mr EX heard about it, he zoomed down to see me immediately.

I admit at this point I realised that I still do matter to him.

Awfully kind of him except he was as always, rushing between appointments. 

Life of a CEO for him.

He made a dramatic entrance to my room and since the staff nurse was with me, he had to poke me.

He raised his voice and asked the Staff Nurse if I cleaned my posterior or his favorite usage of “back side”

Sigh! Thankfully the Staff Nurse knows of him and left us.

He lost his only audience.

I asked him why he is he so obsessed with posteriors. My million dollar burning question.

His smug reply was “not anybody’s back side, JUST YOURS!”

Aaargh๐Ÿ˜’if only you could see my invisible dagger stabs at him!!๐Ÿ˜•I was not enlightened.

I will not be unravelling this obsession anytime soon, his mysterious obsession with my touche! Sigh!

He tells me he has only half an hour to spare as he has to go into a meeting at 7.30pm.

He saw my fantastic dinner and helped me wolf it down. Least I could do was share my lavish meal which was too much for one person really๐Ÿ˜

I did appreciate his presence as I would not like to be rushing about squeezing out half an hour to slot me in.

I learnt for the first time that he liked tiramisu cake and his eyes twinkled when he saw the green tea tiramisu served.

Macaron and all went straight into his tum tum and like the Phantom of the Opera, he breezed in as quickly as he breezed out!

His exit would not be complete with his further poke at “my touche” to which the story then goes….


“Since you are so hung up on my “touche’s” state of hygiene you could clean it when I am ill!”


Intent was to stunned him to shutting up!


“I will be disrupted by non backside-centric robot”


“Aah good you are buying me a robot!! This way you can continue sing for supper or work for dough lol. ๅฏๆ˜ฏๅถๅฐ”ไฝ ไนŸ่ฆๅ‡บ้ฉฌๅ› ไธบๆœบๅ™จ่ฆไฟฎๅ—!๐Ÿ–’(*translated to mean aah but occasionally the non backside centric robot will need servicing so you gotta do it๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„”
This is where he took this point to exit and breezed out…

Silence ensues as the door closes on his exit.

I am non the wiser unfortunately and not much closer to solving case of the backside obsession!

Annual Performance Review & What It Means


Day 9 – Bates Motel, Thank You For Keeping Me Company….

Chicken sent me this yesterday on learning I was ill.

I must thank all you kind folks for keeping me company whilst I was incarcerated in Bates Motel.

Your comments and likes or laughs really kept me going, as if you each visited me virtually and kept me company.

It is not nice being sick. 

Yesterday I was given 13 injections on my neck. 

Gee it had to be baker’s dozen as they say. 

I teased Dr Boey for lucky 13 injections!! A dozen with one extra๐Ÿ˜‰

Being sick this often as I am, can take a physical toll on friendships, relationships and these days other than venting on WordPress, I choose to tell no one, other than Mr Ability To Earn and Chicken.

Mr EX may accidentally discover (*which incidentally he did but that will be on my next upcoming post for laughs) but he does not count ha ha and you probably guessed it …I do not wish to encourage more ascerbic encounters though it does give great entertainment of laughs. 

If only he knew how much he is entertaining us…he could jolly well be rather angry with me๐Ÿ˜Š

Duchess of Yore has been very gracious, ensuring my comfort…hint hint…that is why I get great medical care and service. I am grateful for her love.

Duke of Yore sent me a get well hamper of which is uplifting.

Grateful thanks to each and every reader in WordPress community who popped by with a word or two to give encouragement, care and concern.

My last meal at Bates Motel or as they say, “One for the road!”


Cod fish steamed in light soya sauce with parsely, served with fried ee fu noodles with fish cake and chinese greens.

Dinner was a specially designed steak in Thai style by Exec Chef Catan.

Fruits and a strawberry tartlet dessert.

Served by a fantastic butler, Taa daa Mr Bhaskar! Nameste and thanks!

He and his team won an award from the hospital and I made him put it on for this photo shot.

Just like an “olympian”medalist!

For great service…he deserved the award!

I am outta Bates Motel….Garrrrrfieeeld get into my luggage. Heavens forbid if I leave you behind!๐Ÿค—


Sooo Me….You Too Maybe?

I suffer from this syndrome too. When I am full, I tend to buy more junk or heaps of floor cleaning solvents or solutions in a multitude of scents…pine fresh, lavender, green apple, rose, etc.

The ingenuity of concocters of floor fragrances are truly great and may they never run out of scents.

I wonder if Kit Kat or chocolatey fragrances will sell for floor cleaning solution? 

Now that would be a best seller wouldn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜‚
