Aliens, Ringworm and Birthdays
So I woke up last Thursday to two perfectly-formed red circles on my breast bone. Let me tell ya, that was an eye opener. I had no idea where they'd come from. The only two options I could think of were: an alien abduction or ringworm. I was hoping for alien abduction. One, I'd have all kinds of fodder for new stories and two, the babies were due in town and I wouldn't have been allowed anywhere near them with anything contagious. I immediately call the doctor and of course couldn't get in. So I took my dilemma to my boss who was a nurse in her former life. She looked at it, grinned, and said I'd had a reaction to the gel they'd put on me the day before for an ultrasound. So much for my alien abduction theory.
