    • Okay, here is the story.

      Yesterday I had to get an x-ray of my neck. At my physical yesterday I showed the doc a painful bump at the bottom on my neck (C7 for those of you in the know) and he wanted to check it out. So I came into work with the order in my hand hoping the only female x-ray tech we have at night would be on duty. Now that I have to get my work done at the same hospital where I work, a reality in rural areas, I like to stick to female clinicians. But when I went to the x-ray department, there was only a guy I don't know well - I'll call him Tom. He said he is the only one on duty all week, the other two are on vacation! I could hardly walk away, there was no graceful way to do that, and anyway I obviously want to get the x-ray and get this cleared up. It's just my neck, after all. No disrobing involved. I don't know this guy at all - he is very quiet and very young. He was really nice and really professional through the whole thing, actually made it kind of fun and he showed me the x-rays and explained stuff (I don't know anything about reading x-rays.) The thing is, it really affected me a lot having him near me, gently moving my hair out of the way, carefully positioning my shoulders - it's like a photograph after all. He smelled really nice and I never noticed that he is quite nice looking although very, very young. Young enough to be my offspring for sure! And I am a person who does not like to be touched by strangers, normally this stuff is hard for me anyway. But I couldn't stop thinking about him! It was really unsettling. There's no fool like an old fool...

      • Just found out my thyroid lab came back totally normal, as did my CBC. Rock solid normal. Nothing even low or high. Woot!

        • When I was taking my children for swim lessons I had a 'crush' on one of the lifeguards. Ridiculously young, but just so good looking and physically magnetic, I couldn't help but notice him. Thank goodness he never had to brush the hair from my shoulders, or I might have had serious difficulties!

          Nothing wrong with enjoying the view.

            • Well, you've gotten yourself healthy in every way; nothing at all wrong with what you were feeling.

              • It was so weird to feel attracted to this guy and kind of like a idiot at the same time! And a co-worker!

                • I'm just imagining HIS forum entry:

                  A lady from RT came in for an x-ray. God, how embarrassing. She's probably old enough to be my mom, but, damn. I had to move her hair, yes, had to, it's part of the job, and it felt so good. Crazy thought about what would happen if I just ran my hands through it. And she's really fit. When she bent over to get her purse, her scrubs cupped her ass just right. And they had these dinosaurs on them, which shouldn't have been sexy, but was. You know? I explained the scan to her, which was cool, she was really interested, but it was a total mistake 'cause I was having to fight off a woody the whole time. Did not expect this with a co-worker! Hope she doesn't need to come back. Or maybe I do.

                  Sorry, couldn't help myself.

                    You know what they say, you can't stop a bird from flying over your head, but you can prevent it from building a nest in your beard.

                    Just think about the deacon... LOL!

                    • I love it, Sabine and Judg and Siobhan. I mean, he sounds kind and gentle and intelligent. I'd keep the baggy scrubs, though -- with the dinosaurs:-) And probably not tell him stories where he would know how wonderful you are and how you love cats. There's such a thing as too much temptation:-)

                      • I just laughed so hard my landlord, who was working in the garden, felt compelled to knock on my door and ask me if I'm alright! Which of course made me laugh even harder! There is something about dinosaurs...

                        Luckily I don't have to go to work tonight - managed to work all my shifts this week without making a complete idiot of myself!

                        • Glad it made you laugh. Sometimes I go too far.

                          • Not at all, seriously you could pick up some $$$$$$ writing some soft porn/romance stuff for magazines. One of my friends did that, nice supplement to her income.

                            Ate way too much today! Fell off the paleo wagon, but not too badly. Had some chicken salad with CW mayo. Wasn't very good either. Also I've been enjoying Earl Gray tea, which is very good without anything in it. Have my tastes changed so much? I guess they have!

                            Glad to be home where there are no attractive young men and my dinosaur scrubs are in the bottom of the laundry basket. Actually, no less than five people commented on them - 3 men and 2 women. People freaking love dinosaurs.

                            • Must buy more dinosaurs.

                              But not cougars.

                              • Tonight was completely different than last night. Instead of lusting after young men, I decided to start singing in the church choir. This was both much harder and much more fun than I thought it would be. Because it is not just singing - not only do you have to get the key and the pitch right, you have to do it with other people. And do it when you are supposed to be doing it, NOT whenever you feel like it. You can't just hold a note because you think it sounds okay, or come in whenever you want. But it was really, really fun, and very cool to be sitting in the midst of a group of people all working to make a beautiful sound. And everyone was very nice and very kind.
