A Conversation With Someone Smarter Than Me

Posted by Sherry , Monday, April 26, 2010 Monday, April 26, 2010

A conversation with my husband:

Me: Ruby has really become attached to her stuffed animals lately

H: Yeah. I love how she gets anthropomorphic with them.

Me: Ana-what? What the hell does that mean?

H: It means, treating them like they are human or with human-like qualities.

Me: Uh-huh.

H: What? It was the first word that came to my head.

Me: Dork. THAT was the first word that came to MY head.


In other news: I got stuck today for the first time. It was very unpleasant. Does that mean I have been 'initiated'? When do you all come over and start circling all my fat bits with a black magic marker? For the record, I would probably walk away from that initiation process looking African-American.

But back to this 'stuck' business. Why was I able to eat 6 ounces of medium well flank steak last night but got stuck on a piece of well toasted 'bagel thin' today? Also, why can I eat like the apocolypse is coming most days but according to the barium swallow I did at my doctor's office, have 'perfect restriction'? As usual, I'm confused.

p.s. I have no fluid in my band yet.

Sherry - because our bands are fickle little bitches sometimes. I can eat a solid portion of protein at night but struggle to get my chocolate milk down some mornings. Plus bagels = white flour = the death of a lot of us. I can eat bread and butter at a restaurant at dinner, but not much before then.

Jenny Says:

Its really weird how the band can take on a life of its own. In the morning I'm not very hungry but then by 10 I could have gnawed off someones arm. So I tried a Luna bar, I was only able to eat 4 bites! 1/2 hour later-you guessed it! Hunger!! lol

Nella Says:

Ohhh I like...fickle little bitches! Yeah!

Andrew Says:

The band can NEVER be explained... two days ago I ate a nice rare steak out at dinner.....the next morning I was stuck with a cheese sandwich...No logic...Just remember to chew chew chew :-)

Carmen Says:

LMAO!! "Me: Dork. THAT was the first word that came to MY head"
that whole exchange is straight out of a sitcom! :-)
that is all i have to say, i'll leave the stuck issue to the experts lol

Sandy Lee Says:

LMAO about the new word. You should post the various "first words that popped into your head" all the time. Hubby's was good but I too thought dork. My hubby says things like that all the time.

Restriction. I thought I had none. Have been able to eat almost everything. Then just one hour ago, PB's on a piece of toast. Must not have chewed. I only have 3.5 cc and know that I don't need much more. I think sometimes the stomach twists a bit and that changes how the food goes down. Just guessing here but as Nella mentioned, they are fickle little bitches. And you remember how Leona Helmsley was. Just when we think we have them figured out, they let us know they are still there.

Bonnie Says:

Bands definitely seem to be mercurial (not quite of an awesome word as your hubby, but I tried).

Camille Says:

I tried to use anthropomorphic in a sentence today. Just doesn't come up much. I think I might be a dork.

Alexis Says:

Our bands are so finicky huh? We were just talking about this last night at the support group I go to. You'll quickly get to learn when it may act up and when not. When I'm stressed, there is no way food's going down. Mornings = nothing but protein shakes. Lunch time, I'm all good! It's just weird, but once you get used to how its working with your body, you'll get a system down...until the little band bitch decides to throw a curve ball ;)
