White Magic Friday: Gotta Be More Hip


Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!"

Have you ever had an MRI?

I had one today. It was the first thing in the morning, and I sure was glad I skipped my coffee before I went, cuz caffeine would not have made matters better.

Here are the tactics I used to get through the MRI:

1. I kept my eyes closed the whole time.

2. I thought about a person in my life who would be unable to endure it (Mr. Johnson) and congratulated myself that I would be able to warn him in advance.

3. I thought of a person who would consider it awesome performance art and want to stay in there all day, (daughter The Heir) and marveled that some inventor created something that sounds just like the stuff she listens to on her MP3.

4. I compared it to living with my mother. (This always works, no matter how bad things get.)

Can I have the envelope, please? The results of the MRI are...

I need a new hip.

White magic will not fix this, of course. Back in the day when the Druids took care of things, I would be given herbal remedies and a good, stout staff, and on I'd go as long as I could.

So, what will white magic do?

It will help.

The bulk of white magic consists of the positive feelings we emit towards others. So, dear readers, think kindly on me and let me know when you're doing it.

Tomorrow, if time permits: We'll catch up with the Monkey Man!

Sunday is The Heir's birthday, and I can't avoid it any longer. She will receive her musical saw.

A new hip? That sounds complicated, can you get those at wal-mart? I have been gone a few days I need to go read what I have missed.

If Wal-Mart was the only place that sold 'em, I'd limp.

I'm with you on Wal-Mart. I'd limp too.

Re MRI: I had one once, but I insisted on its being one of the open ones. I know I am claustrophobic and was not going to tempt fate. On the other hand, I was not willing to put up with sedation either.

My sister had a hip replaced a year ago, and she recovered really well. You and she are both relatively young for that kind of surgery, so you should heal faster with less pain.

Did you know that people can have hip dysplasia too? Until I saw her xrays, I thought it was only in dogs.

White light and great healing to you, Anne, from Kate in Alabama.

I am sorry Anne that you do in fact need a new hip. My late aunt had both of her replaced (one of them twice) and it gave her the gift of mobility that she would neer have had otherwise.

I wish you the very best and will of course be sending white light and healing energies to you!
