What a friend.

I'm so grateful. I had dental surgery this morning, leaving me more uncomfortable than I would have thought. I was sharing with a friend how I hate to feel needy and helpless and really just wanted to be pampered...BUT I had to head to school and teach music to special needs children, and 3 band classes with a mouth that was still hugely swollen, numb, and bleeding on one side.

Get this...This friend actually drove an hour to my school and was my *voice* for my first 3 classes, before he had to head back to his own responsibilities an hour away.

I asked him...."I really look like shit, don't I" He agreed. *rolling eyes* some men never learn to be more diplomatic

All I had to offer him was a dark chocolate candy bar. I hope he knew how grateful I was. He did a great job with the kids too!

Thanks Nightis!

anacortes~ yes, he is. He was that and much more until just a few weeks back. Life is complex. I miss him....but wish him the best. And grateful that our friendship didn't end too.
