E is for Emergency
I don't like the word Emergency. It's never a good thing whether it's with a loved one or a manuscript. Right? E-mer-gen-cy. It doesn't roll off my tongue; it sort of shuffles, stumbles, feeling awkward. Such an unpleasant word.
My mom is in a nursing home and was hit with a bladder infection, a stomach virus and bronchitis. That's enough to knock anyone for a loop, much less a little old woman who
Anyway, by the time I got to the nursing home today (a 4 1/2 hour drive), she was somewhat better, no need for a hospital--just her two kids. She perked up a little and tried to entertain us with her wit but I could tell it was an act.
So, Emergency is the word for the weekend--as much as I hate to use it. I'd certainly prefer Eccentric which sounds fascinating to me. Or Easy money which always sounds tempting but really, just a fantasy. Even Elephant sounds more delightful.
Emergency - I don't wish my E-word on any of you. May all your friends and loved ones have a good and safe weekend, and I pray you have no Emergencies.
I'll see you Monday with a much better word! Promise!
I am blogging my way through the alphabet with others who are doing the same..
