But today I had to take a scissors to the bangles on my left wrist.
My hands usually look like this. After a sting from a tiny black wasp yesterday, though, my left hand and arm gradually swelled up.
Until today it turned into this. The beads had to go.
I went to the doctor, and the receptionist (noting what I'd said when I called for an appointment) didn't even look up, saying only, "Are you able to sign forms?" That was pretty crass, but what was I expecting? Maybe something more along the lines oh "Oooooooh honey, I'm so sorry! That looks terrible! Don't worry about these silly forms!"
I feel like I'm slowly morphing into another person. Pillsbury Dough-girl? Miss Piggy? No. I'm quite obviously heading towards being a super hero, like the Incredible Hulk.
Here is the amazing result of my first Super Hero try:
Kerry can change shape into a dog. She also has mastered the ability to block vibrations and deflect them toward a single foe, however only when happy. Kerry lords over an array of cows and she is able to copy the size of her attackers. Additionally, she developed the talent to confuse the hearing of an antagonist, but using this power draws a lot of attention. Kerry has been known to create magic out of thin air and she has learned to erase the memories of others. Tragically, Kerry is especially vulnerable to fluid-based attacks.
What's your super hero?
Anyway. I guess I'll idle away some time pretending to be a super hero until my hand and arm return to the size of an ordinary mortal's. Then I can put my beads back on, and be grateful that my misfortune is only temporary.
