Writer's Workshop: Tales From The ER

Well this is late and I am sorry Mama Kat because well it is really late but this is my story for your workshop today.

4.) List ten things you would say to ten different people in your life...if you had the hutzpah


Your trip to the ER...spill it.

First top ten things I will not put names here because well, that's just not nice.

1. Why are you still talking to him?? He scammed you out of $2,000 what does it take to learn a lesson?

2. Yes you are being a b**ch

3. I am your friend and as your friend I need you to leave now, so I can stay your friend.

4. Why did you marry him? he treats you like crud.

5. I think we need to talk...

6. if you run away and don't tell anyone where you are going one more time so help me....

7. church, church, church if you are such a church loving person why are you sleeping with three other people and why do you try to fore your ideals on me??

8. all that drinking is going to kill you one day.

9. Yes you smell like smoke, if you smoke a half of a pack in an enclosed area you will!

10. I am not your mother, so stop making me act like it!

Okay now that that is out of my system the ER trip.... this one might actually have to be in parts because well its a long story.

I was 18, I turned 18 the week before, I was working as a waitress at a deli for crappy money and even crappy tips, because people think that deli''s pay you more. They don't.

I had just gotten an assistant manager position at Ultra Tan, they were building one near me, I was supposed to start a week after I came back from my two week vacation to Myrtle each with my family. I was about to quit the restaurant. (see I was doing a lot of stuff)

When Prue and Piper called to ask if I wanted to go to Skyline, (I finally got to go this year!) I had always been to young to go before, so they would drop me off and go and tell me what a fun time I missed the next day.

I was ecstatic! I was going to Skyline! I told my parents I couldn't go to Choir practice because I was going out, but I knew my part and would sing on Sunday. I rushed into the bathroom to get ready as soon as they were out of the door.

Here's where the dramatic part comes in, We had the AC unit installed the week before, they installed it upside down or backward or something along those lines, the water was supposed to drain only the drain was running uphill and instead it leaked through the vent onto the tile in the bathroom. Airforce had tried to make the bathroom smell good by spraying Endust into it before they left, which kinda creaked a slick surface, I slid and flew and slammed my head on the back of the tub, knocking myself out for a few moments.

This would have been normal for me (I actually visited the ER a lot as a child I was very klutzy) but when I came to I wasn't in pain, I sat there for a few and took an inventory, neck okay, slight headache, arms and wrists fine, legs.... wow that one doesn't look right... lets move it and fix it... OWWW OWWW OWWWW NOT GOOD!!! Yes that was my though process. I should have called 911 I know. But I called Piper and Prue. they had already left so I called Cowboy Prue's then husband. He said he would try to get them. Then I called my parents ( I had my cell in my pants pocket thank god) they didn't answer so i called Kensei who was in TN, he called every Baptist Church he could find online until he got the one they were at and told them to come home.

When They got home my dad was positive I had sprained my ankle and told me to stand on it, while he was helping me up the agony shooting though me caused me to finally yell "Someone call freaking 911 already!!"

So they did.

The fire department came and then the ambulance and the ER guy with the most beautiful blue eyes I ever saw... could have been the pain... the collard and boarded me and off we went, but things actually got worse from there....

And this is becoming longer than I thought so I think that I will post the rest tomorrow!!
