Cheyenne has thought it funny lately to tell me that she is going to get me Life Alert for Christmas. These comments were generated out of an initial discussion regarding the labyrinthitis and the potential for dizziness and loss of balance, so I took them originally as a misguided attempt at expressing concern for me. Alas, I blew it with my initial reaction of disdain. Expressing disdain when a teenager says something is tantamount to begging for more of the same. And more of the same is what I have received.
Thank goodness for by buddy Katie Renner who posted something on Facebook recently that is going to shut down this whole Life Alert discussion once and for all.
Yes, indeed…I cannot wait for the next time it comes up with Cheyenne. I am going to let this line about the hot firefighters roll of my tongue with the biggest smirk you can imagine. After she gets done uttering the longest and loudest “EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW” in her teenage career she will never revisit the topic again.
I do have a question though for hot firefighters in the near vicinity though – is there any penalty for pushing one’s Life Alert multiple times when the only emergency at hand is a need for some eye candy? Not that I would ever do such a thing. I am merely asking to get the correct information to help inform the public. 😉
