Blind dating

Well, if I had a nickel for every person who said they wanted to set me up with someone these days I would be rich!

Don't worry, I actually really like to be set up on blind dates because I feel like I get to know more people, and for the most part mine have gone really well when my friends have set me hasn't gone so well when the old folks have tried.

Here are some stories just to prove my point.

1. I was getting a resident ready for bed and was just rubbing some lotion on her hands and helping her feel comfortable when she says to me, "oh, I bet your husband loves when you help him like this." I replied, "well, actually I am not married". "You're not?! Well, I have the perfect guy to set you up with...his name is Blaine and he is 68 years old. How old are you?"


By this time my jaw has dropped and I am just cracking up. "I'm 22! That's a HUGE gap!"
"Oh, age don't matter" she says, "plus he is pretty rich... he has his own apartment. His wife died 14 years ago so he knows how to treat the ladies. Do ya like to bowl? He loves to bowl."

So I am just getting a kick out of this until hear her on the phone in the other room (talking extra loud because she can't hear) "Blaine! I got a lady friend here I was you to meet!"

Color is now draining out of my face because I can't believe she ACTUALLY called him. Luckily nothing has transpired so far and I hope she has just forgotten the conversation even occurred...I hope he has too.

2. Also another resident has been saying she wanted to set me up on a blind date for weeks with a "Polynesian man",  because I am Polynesian and I preach that I love the brown ones. Well, months go by and she is still telling me that as soon as she finds out his name she will let me know.

Well she found out alright.....

It just HAPPENED to be my Uncle Jay.

That will not work on SO many levels. Good try though!

From now on, I will not be taking set-ups by my patients, thank you very much!

And on a side note... best quote of the week goes to Alzheimer's went a little something like this:

"Don't you look at me like I have Syphilis!"


HILARIOUS I tell you, hilarious.

Totally remember the feeling. I felt like every time I went home and went to my home ward, every single person had someone they wanted to set me up with. Who knew that my sweetie cakes would be 2 minutes away from my house in Willard? haha.

I had a comment for you but that distracted me . . . Eww . . .
