It all started with Geri Atric from Ageing Ungracefully. Geri wanted to know if I was in a mixed ward in the hospital and thankfully the answer was NO. I’ve enough problems to cope with here without having strange men in my ‘bedroom’. Then the bed next to me became vacant yesterday when it’s very pleasant occupant went home and that’s when Grannymar started teasing. She reckoned I might get a HUNK in the next bed. What can I say?
Having dismissed this hunk in the bed idea, Grannymar suggested that I could always give my drip stand a name as it is by my side night and day. Still teasing, she proposed ‘Derek the Drip’ but I told her I wanted to think carefully about names for my companion.
Well, last night I happen to pop over to visit Baino at Baino’s Banter and there I found an entertertaining post about waltzing Matilda. That’s it, I shouted! I’ve no need for a hunk in the bed next to me, Matilda keeps me company all the time and we can be seen waltzing down the corridor together. So Matilda is now my newfound friend.
Thanks for the fun folks! And yes, the new occupant of the bed nextdoor, is a delightful addition to the ward.
