Wife Chases Cock, Lands In E.R.

It's exactly what it sounds like. And it's nothing like it sounds.

The wife has chickens. 15 of them. Right now, there are 15. There might be 14 tomorrow.

About 6:30 this evening, she was outside to collect the eggs and doing all the take-care-of-the-chicken stuff that she does. The little rooster she has decided it wanted to fight her. So my wife is now taking part in a cockfight. As a participant.

She took a stick and swung at it a time or two. And, she says, the last time, she chased it and tripped and fell. On a stump. And it tore a huge gash in her leg.

I won't go into the details of it, but the bleeding finally stopped with the 4th washcloth. I convinced her to let me take her to the E.R. I missed the entrance to the first hospital, but there's another hospital next door to the first one, so I turned into that one. Got her into the E.R. and told the lady behind the counter. We sat down and sort of watched an episode and a half of "Wings" when they finally called her to triage.

The nurse did her triage stuff then finally looked at the injury. She sent us back to watch "Wings" but within a couple of minutes, they called her to the back. I was pleased they moved her ahead of everyone, but that means she needed to be ahead of everyone else.

The cleaned the gash up and sewed her up. Seven stitches. Got the paperwork finished and got back home.

She's laying down watching Comedy Central. Ron White is drunk. In public. She's laughing and feeling better.

It's a good thing she doesn't read this little blog. She'd hurt me just over the headline.

    Bro, you better hope she doesn't read the title. That may be all it takes for her to get a big stick after you...notice I refrained from making any analogy about any body parts.
