Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

I can't go anywhere today until after 2:00 p.m. because I have to get my stitches out. I can't get them out 'til after 2:00 because the Doc isn't in until 2:00 on Tuesday---if I had any guts at all I would take them out myself---nope no guts.

I'm glad you don't have the guts makes me shiver just thinkin' about it.

Inklings said...

Me too, maybe it means you have common sense! :0)

Well, I think the biggest issue is that the doctor needs to determine if you are even ready to have them out. I've seen times when the doctor said to leave them in a little longer.

All you need to do is snip and pull!

Dee Ice Hole said...

Looney---yup that's what he told me but I get hold of them and can't do the snip. I know I'm a boob.

Inklings said...

Looney, we couldn't even snip and pull the cats' stitches when we had her spayed. :0s

Dee Ice Hole said...

If I would have snipped and pulled I would have had a panic attack when the incisions opened up---the doctor said I had healed nicely whatever that means. The scars will blend with the wrinkles and other scars on my face in a couple of weeks.
