Dog Cat Ate My Homework Doctor's Note.
Yep. That's right. My cat has struck again. As I've mentioned before, I had gall bladder surgery a few months ago. Having a major organ ripped out through your belly button doesn't really leave your body in the best condition to go to Zumba or Cycling. In order to get my money back for my gym membership, I had my Doctor write a note explaining my situation. All I had to do was fax the letter to the Scary Gym Lady (see below):
and hope that, having already ruined enough lives that day, she would spare a little mercy and honor my request.
But once again my laziness prevailed and the Doctor's note sat under a pink magnet on my fridge for approximately a month and a half. It wasn't until I needed to use that pink magnet to hold something way more important (tickets to two Avett Brothers concerts in September) that I decided I should do something about the note. I'll take it to work with me in the morning and fax it from there, I thought. Apparently, the note caught my cat, Roux's, attention at the same time. (I'm not going to lie, there are times when I think Roux can read my mind...she really freaks me out...) Except Roux didn't wait until the morning to take action. She decided to do something about it in the middle of the night.
When I woke up in the morning, I saw it. My Doctor's note was on the floor with a bite taken out of it. And not just any bite. The most crucial bite that could have been taken. If this were a cinnamon bun, Roux had eaten the moist center, where the spiral ends and all the cinnamon-y goodness is contained. Let's just say that Roux knows how to eat her paper. She managed to take the most bland dish and find a way to savor it. She had eaten the date. Desire' had surgery on ------. Without a date, I had nothing! No proof of when the surgery actually took place. I could have had this surgery 3 years ago for all they knew. How Roux even got the note down is a question I'd rather not know the answer to. How inconvenient! Just when I had decided to be slightly motivated, Roux foiled my plans!
