My Fashion Show Story
So you know by now I had been working like a mad woman making new jewelry for the fashion show. I had at least 6 new pieces and I was very excited about having them modeled. Wouldn't you know it but the Thursday before the show I started to feel very run down(no surprise there) and my throat started to really hurt. By the morning I couldn't swallow and I had a 102 degree fever. Sure enough I had a case of strep so bad that the doctor put me on vicodin to ease the pain. The last time I was on vicodin I just had a person cut out of my stomach. I figured I'd rest all weekend(of course easier said then done) and go to the show Monday night. By Monday I was feeling slightly better and being that I had been on antibiotics and no longer contagious I would go to then fashion show. So I piled on enough makeup to make a drag queen blush so I wouldn't look too much like the walking dead and off I went. My friend Lori drove so I sat there blowing my nose sounding like a very sick goose and cursing that all the work I had done covering up my bright red nose was being wiped off with each honk. I was there for a little while when feeling really crappy. Cold sweats,pounding headache and everyone started to sound like Charlie Brown's teacher. I needed to go. So I called John to come get me and he was not too pleased even though it was only 8:30 and I was 10 minutes away. He even pretended to not even know where I was even though we had been there together several times. Finally he shows up and he and the girls are in in their pj's which I'm sure was for dramatic purposes only. So by 9:00 I was in my bed throwing myself a pity party. I didn't get to see my jewelry modeled(probably the only chance I would get) but at least I won a gift certificate for brunch.Oh Well!
