No wonder I couldn't find it

Brian laid quietly in hospital room 408, halfheartedly listening to the guy in the other bed.

"I realize now that time is precious," the guy said. "I've learned that I need to slow down and enjoy life. What about you?"

"I've learned," Brian sighed, "that there are some places pine cones just do not belong."

Susan Anderson said...

LMAO! Very funny 55. Thanks for visiting :)

otin said...

Very nice! Ouch!

Someone needs to tell me how to link in my comment section!

Uncivil said...

Sounds like Brian could use some buttpaste?

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

Oh my!! And where did that pine cone end up??

Janna said...

Brian: I'd probably wince too, if it was me! :o

Susan: Thank YOU for visiting. :)

Otin: You put links in the comment section by using regular html... here's a page that explains how to do that. Scroll down to where it says "An HTML Link". It gives you the syntax right there. Just substitute your own URL where it says "url", and put whatever text you want where it says "Link text".

Uncivil: I'm shocked that your comment had nothing to do with Nancy. :) I was sure you were going to have ill-wishes that involved an entire pine tree. :o

Janna said...

Lee: Kinda makes you want to see the X-ray, doesn't it? :)

VE said...

Hope it wasn't one of those giant Sequoia ones...

Knucklehead said...

That's not what they mean by "getting back to nature."

Monkey Man said...

Janna...I love you. That is hilarious. Makes me squirm in my chair. My 55 is here.

Alice Audrey said...

*spew* LOL!!! I love it.

I'm glad Brian learned an important life lesson while communing with Euell Gibbons in the forest. I'm also glad that you shared his story with the rest of us, who can certainly benefit from Brian's pain. I am, however, a little worried about the guy in the next bed. Will he live? Will he die? Is he in pain, too? So many questions.

Larry said...

Jeff said...

AND gerbils. Ok, that was just wrong. Sorry.

Janna said...

VE: Or something from the petrified forest...

Knucklehead: LOL! Well, it will be a long time before Brian shows his backside to nature again. :)

MonkeyMan: It's always a good Friday when I can make someone squirm in their chair.

AliceAudrey: Hopefully it was worth it, even though you have to clean off your computer screen now. :)

MikeWJ: Fortunately, the guy in the next bed is doing fine. His kidney transplant went beautifully, and he'll be back to selling used cars again in a few weeks.

Larry: Thanks for visiting. :)

Bubbie: People are funny! :)

Hootin'Anni: Prickly indeed! Thanks for visiting!

ChefKar: My entire blog is devoted to making people go "hmmmm...."

Grace: Hee! :)

Swapnap: Welcome! Pull up a chair and have some cookies with the rest of us.

PSthePratsie: They're fun, aren't they? :)

Jeff: I wonder if gerbils can eat pine cones... that could solve half the problem right there.

G-Man said...

I thought this was hilarious!
Another awesome 55 Janna!
I sure hope you become a regular!
I'm an Extra-Large...hehehehe
Sorry.
Anyway, thanks for playing and visiting, and have a Kick Ass Week-End....G

Janna said...

G-Man: Well, since this my third 55 in a row, you can officially call me a regular.
Not to be confused with "irregular." :)

Mona said...

That was a smart retort! :D

Janna said...

Mona: Brian's a smart guy! Except when it comes to pine cones.
