In Calendar Years

Kristie: Hey, thanks for washing the sheets and making the bed before I got home. It was nice to climb into fresh clean sheets last night.

Blaine: That’s ok. I sort of had to wash them because I got Ben-Gay all over them.

Kristie: Ben-Gay? Why?

Blaine: Well, this change in weather really bothers the leg where they took the bone from that surgery, and makes it ache a lot, so I was using Ben-Gay trying to make it hurt less.

Kristie: Oh.

{pause}

Blaine: Hey, I forgot to tell you, while you were gone the base called and they should have my temporary false teeth ready by next week.

{another pause}

Kristie: So, in calendar years, you're 43. But basically, in physical years, you’re like, 72, aren’t you?

Blaine: Pretty much.

Awww...to this one, Kristie, I just have to say...if I could have Bill back again, I would buy Ben-Gay by the case and I'd whittle him a set of false teeth myself! I'd even be happy to push him around in a wheelchair, and do whatever else I had to do...if I could just have him back again. It's really too bad that it doesn't seem like anybody even cares too much about certain types of cancer; Bill never even had a chance. So, I know I don't have to tell you this and I know you already do, but enjoy everyday with your 73-year-old-43-year-old husband, even more than you would normally! You guys rock! And tell Blaine for me I got some stuff from my chiro called "Biofreeze." It's on the order of BenGay, Icy Hot, etc., but it's a gel and doesn't smell as much, and works GREAT; the best I've ever tried! It might be worth a shot to try to find it!

LOL!! You are just too funny. Thanks for the laugh and smiles!

Me again....I read what kim-d said about the Biofreeze. My chiro. uses it too and has used it on me. It really works!! Much better than Ben-Gay or Theragesic. Good luck!

Fresh clean sheets.....not too many husbands would do that.
I am also a huge fan of Biofreeze. You can order it over the internet and save quite a bit. There is no after smell like beg gay.

Grandma J said...

OOPS! I didn't know Biofreeze came in a gel. I had a roll-on which was great and easy to carry in my purse.

I am so relieved Preparation H was not involved in this post in any way.

LOL Kristie! I love the relationship that you and Blaine have. You are VERY blessed!

My goodness; it seems as if you have a lot of friends who use Bio-Freeze.. so they are either aging in dog-years like Blaine, or they just exercise waaaaay too darn much!
Anyway, what I was GOING to say before I read all the testimonials to BioFreeze is that Blaine's heart is a world-class, A-1 winner in the beauty AND strength categories, and that's ALL you need!

aaahhhh, Blaine sounds so sweet! My husband wouldn't change the sheets if I left them for a month, he'd never notice! You are so lucky Kristie!
I hope those teeth are comfortable, good luck with that!
Take care,
Love Angela
