Two funny things

These both happened to me in the past 24 hours.

We were at our Halloween Party, last night.  A woman I didn't know came up to me, (I was dressed as a devil), and asked me if I was "an angel in disguise".  I said, "No".  One of my friends at our table said she was glad I hadn't lied to the woman.

Then today, we were at a Craft Fair - Bake Sale, at our clubhouse.  One of my Tai Chi student's husband asked me if I'd killed Bob, yet.  It seems his wife, Ruth, truly one of the sweetest women in the world, had threatened to shoot him if he didn't make a needed Dr's appointment.  He was shocked, of course, but made his appointment.  Ruth told him she'd learned that from me.

Here's the back story on that one:

Years ago, before Bob was diagnosed with diabetes, he scraped his lower leg while coming out of a lake during a triathlon.  Later we couldn't get his leg to heal, no matter what we tried.  I told him he needed to go to the Dr.; he just wouldn't do it.  So, one Sunday after breakfast, I told him, these were his choices:
  • He could go to Urgent Care, right now, 
  • I would shoot him.
Wisely, he chose to go to Urgent Care, where they not only took excellent care of him, they had him return daily, until his wound was healed, and they diagnosed him with diabetes.

Well I suppose if it works. :) I usually just tell my guys to 'do something about it' or 'shut up' :)
