Bone Thugs-n-Harmony

About a week ago O.G. fell and hurt herself pretty bad. She swore she was fine, but when I caught of glimpse of her - and saw her WHOLE LEFT chest was badly bruised - I forced her to go to the doctor. Lo and behold...she busted her clavicle. ~gag~

Her bones must be made out of molten steel, because she said she felt no pain at all and even refused all medication. Now she's down and out for 8 weeks. That's a long azz time. They said anyone else her age wouldn't have survived. I believe that.

So I've been doing her laundry, taking her to the market, etc. My reward for all this - she gave me a ham bone. THE ham bone. And I don't even eat ham!!

So I took that ol' ham bone and souped it up, so to speak.

The lesson in all of this - if you eat nothing but ham all the time, you will live to almost 100 and have bones of steel.

You and O.G. are lucky to have each other. Take good care of her, I need more O.G. stories.
