Almost Friday, 13th

Today  – A day full of surprises. Joyous, painful, scary and funny. But most of all a reminder about how fast everything can change in our earthy life and that we can be all assured that life is in control of life and we don’t have any control or whatsoever about it.


Surprise 1)
This morning I passed out while I intended to turn an omelette. I sensed the passing coming, but usually it goes by quickly. This time it did not. I lost consciousness. Gravity helped the pan to land on top of my thigh and the spatula scraped the instep of my foot. I was shocked and scared. Tears fell down my face, then the pain appeared and tiny blisters. I mostly sat in the bathtub today, dripping water over my leg. I slept a lot, had a very curious dream and treated my burn with urine. YES, I did. It was very recommended by my friend who is a Chinese medicine expert! I think it helped. When I try to remember what happened, I can clearly recall the burning pain, when I dropped to the floor being incapable to help myself in that situation.

Surprise 2)
When I rested in bed, Rajendra leaned over me to look at my blisters and believe it or not my new phone slid down the mattress and fell with a short plop right into my water glass. We both could not believe what just happened and started to laugh. Of course it is broken, but it is drying in a jar of rice right now. According to the employee of the phone store that is the way to do it. Rice extracts liquid. I just hope apple is not only an expert in design and functionality but has also self repair powers.

Surprise 3)
When Rajendra came back from pharmacy shopping, he displayed a burn cream, gauze  AND a stainless steel flask of whiskey in front of me! He really went into a liquor store and bought me a bottle of scotch whiskey, one that is not smokey and the flask. It has even a window in front so I can see when it needs a refill. He said, I might need that after the urine treatment, the pain, the shock and the broken phone.

He might be right. Cheers and Prost allerseits!
