My friend Alison has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. We live several hundred miles apart, so I don't get to see her, but we have IM. My self appointed task is to offer encouragement, lend an ear, and make her laugh if I can. Making Al laugh sometimes requires that you get a little 'blue'. Thomas: how ya doin? Alison: ok i was very sad last night but im ok now Thomas: its ok to be sad, but your situation isn't hopeless. i'd say your in a pretty good position really Alison: i made the mistake of googleing reconstructive breast surgery techniques Thomas: oh no. thats not helpful Alison: the possibility of not having nipples kinda freaked me out Thomas: wait, you don't get nipples? Alison: sometimes Thomas: i see that it comes after the breast reconstruction Alison: yeah Thomas: you'll get your tatas back, then they work in the nipples Alison: which is weird i asked bill if i can just get pasties tattoed on and forget about the nipples Thomas: well, at that point they are just ornemental you could get fins maybe. like a '57 chevy Alison: LOL no stars would work Thomas: ooo...

Sometimes my wife and I have funny conversations. I'm going to start sharing them, because otherwise this blog will just gather dust really. This conversation was over her disappointment in my posting a song on Facebook that she intended to post to me. Tracey Hall: you ass-that was my power ballad-i was just about to post it to you lol Thomas Stuart Hall: aw I used that one for Brian cause he just got laid off Tracey A. Hall: brian who? we know a few mandy's brian? Thomas Stuart Hall: brian taylor. a friend from college. I met him through Adam. you've never met. but he's a really nice guy and used to wear leather pants of course, now we're middle aged, and thats not an option i'll regret that i never owned a pair Tracey A. Hall: i don't - i love our kids Thomas Stuart Hall: he's had a kid post pants they weren't really form fitting more 90's euro-trash post grunge sort of thing Tracey A. Hall: lolol Thomas Stuart Hall: if that is such a thing. i kinda pulled that one out my ass Tracey A. Hall: that's not a thing Thomas Stuart Hall: i didn't think it was oh well well, i could create a wikipedia article and make it a thing...
