Yesterday I went to the Doctor's office to have an Upper Endoscopy procedure. I was a bit scared. Craig dropped me off. Roughly 30 minutes later I met the doctor. She explained everything that would happen and what she was looking for. Basically, she was going to stick a camera down my throat to see what was going on inside of my esophagus. I had been slightly anemic according to some previous test results and my doctor was worried that I was bleeding internally. They drugged me up and about 30 minutes after that they were waking me up and sending me home with Craig.Craig took me home and I slept from noon until 4:30pm. It was a great nap! The Doctor did tell Craig that she didn't see anything abnormal, but she did take a biopsy to test just in case. I should get the results from that in the mail in a few days. She doesn't expect to find anything wrong though. Thank goodness for the miracles they have in modern medicine. Still not sure why I was anemic though. Oh, well, at least I'm not bleeding internally.
Just thought I'd give you all an update. Sorry if it's TMI.

Two days ago I had the most bizarre conversation with the manager of my local Rite Aid. It was so funny that I just had to share.
Craig and I were at the Factoria Mall. We went into Rite Aide so I could pick up something I needed at home. As I got in line, Craig went to get the car so Cooper and I wouldn't have to walk through the rain. That's when things got weird.
Manager - "I can help someone at the Photo counter."
I was second in line, so I moved over to be assisted by the manager. I only had one item, I figured it would be quick.
So, I walk up to the counter and place my item on it...
Manager - "Are you playing the game of Life like you know you should?"
My thoughts - What!?! Oh, maybe he is talking about the scratch ticket Lucky for Life, I'm not sure, uhh...
Me - "Uhh, no. I am playing the real game of life though. So far I've rolled and gotten married and had a kid."
Manager - "Oh, you're doing it right. I wish I could have kids. I have to get married first and I can't find a wife."
Me - "You'll find one."
Manager - "My roommate says I lost the toss for the good looks pool."
Me - "That's horrible!"
Manager - "Horrible, but true."
By this time we were finished ringing up my one item and I had started to head out of the store with Cooper.
Me - "Uhh, bye. Have a good night."
I walked out of there as fast as I could. It was such a bizarre encounter. I told Craig the story right away. I've been chuckling about it ever since. I do feel sorry for that poor man. He was not hideous by any means, but he wasn't super attractive either. Poor guy just needed a hair cut and a roommate that doesn't pick on him.
