Funny stories

My friends and I were recalling my chemo days last night and I have a funny story I thought I would share with you all. After I finished chemo I decided to do some clothes shopping. I got all dressed up and carefully combed out my wig and put it on so I could shop at some of the ritzier stores. I picked out some things and promptly went to the dressing room to try them on. A very proper elderly sales woman showed me to the luxurixous dressing room and mentioned what pretty hair I had. I happliy began to try on dress. Well, I must have gained weight because I couldn't get the sucker off. I was in there so long the saleswoman probably thought that I had left. I heard the key turn and the door swings open to reveal me in all my splendid glory: the dress rolled around my waist, my wig now a tangled mass at my feet looking like some kind of animal, my mascara smeared, my angry scars fully visible and my bald head gleaming. I wish you could have seen her face when she opened the door!

I am sure that alot of you have some stories that are much more hilarious than that one so start sharing!

My "chemonesia" was particularly noticable in the area of dressing myself. On more than one occasion I hate to admit, I wore my bra backwards. In my defense it was the sports bra type, not something with actual cups; however it does reveal that I am not exactly very endowed. I even told the backwards bra story to someone and later found out I was telling it with my bra on backwards again!

What a wonderful idea! "A cheerful heart IS good medicine". I wish I had some experiences as great as the previous ones, however all I had was children thinking I was a boy, and a young guy thought I was a punk chick (I didn't wear wigs). They did give me a chuckle at the time. I hope to hear more stories!
