My Own Personal Joy Ride
I asked my nurse this morning if she would mind wheeling me to the pop machine so I could get something to drink. I figured it would serve as my "outing" for the day. She didn't hesitate at all to agree to take me.
She left to get the wheelchair and when she returned, she said, "I found a fun surprise for you!"
And a fun surprise it was! Yippee! My own private joy ride. Where should I go? Cafeteria? Gift Shop? Vending Machines? Veranda? Coffee Shop? Public Bathroom?
So many choices.
I opted for the baby boutique gift shop downstairs. I knew they had cold drinks in a cooler, and I could also look more closely at some things I've had my eye on.
Well, $65 later. I had not one but two refreshing beverages, a sweet baby outfit, a matching hat, a pair of discontinued Robeez, and a couple of other odds and ends.
A joy ride, indeed!
