Even though I haven't blogged in forever and a day I am sure that most of you already know that I have a new job doing marketing for assisted living. Since working with old people is probably one of the funniest jobs on the planet I have decided to share the humor and start a new segment on my blog called 'Old Funnies'. I haven't worked in this field very long but I know that we belong together. I love awkwardly funny moments and those happen all the time here. This one happened a couple of nights ago and is pretty inappropriate but it is hilarious all the same. A new resident that I will call June (for the sake of hippa) had just moved in and I needed her picture so that we could have it on file. I went looking for her at her room and when I got to the hall where her room is I saw that she was walking in zigzags back and forth down the hall. I thought she was struggling to walk or that she was about to fall down or something so I asked her what she was doing and she told me, "I don't want to wear down the carpet." I tried not to laugh and said that she could walk straight and that if the carpet got worn down we could just replace it. Later June told me that her son hadn't bought her a lamp yet and that she liked to read before she goes to bed so I told her that I would get her a lamp to use until her son bought her one. I went and got the lamp and took it to her room. When I got in her room I said, "It's looking real good in here June." She replied, "Yes except that my son brought my king size bed, now what in the world am I going to do with a king size bed?" I told her that it fits in the room just fine and that it should work good for her, she then said, "Yeah if i were going to have an orgy." I couldn't help it and I started laughing so hard. Most of the residents here are very conservative so I was not expecting her to say that at all. I think she was pretty proud of herself for making me laugh. Anyway I will save some for another time.
So for a quick update life is going great. I love my job. My husband is the best and he likes his job which makes us both happy. He is going to school to be a plumber and he is working in plumbing right now as well. He makes me happy beyond belief. Life is good.
