...And Then Something Good Happened.

As some of you (who follow me on Facebook) may or may not know, I had another colonoscopy recently. It was something I was not looking forward to because not eating solid food for 24 hours straight puts me on the same level of incoherent insanity as a sister wife.

However, it was something I actually was looking forward to as well. The results of my colonoscopy would give us a better idea on how my health had improved or deteriorated. And it would be one step closer to the impending surgery that's been begging to be scheduled.

Anyway.

Last Tuesday, I got home from work to find an envelope from my gastrointestinal doctor. Of course, I ripped that shit open, not even stopping to think about what type of news I could be receiving.

After skimming through the medical mumbo-jumbo and trying to make sense of the "findings" and descriptions, I found the doctor's note.

And my eyes honed in on the only part of the note that mattered...

"...benign..."

THANK GOD.

Because if we're going to be honest here, there were some major concerns about the possibility of non-benign results.

So that happened.

And Boyfriend and I rejoiced and the clouds parted and the angels sang and Biscuit did the dougie.

And it was a really great moment.


As if that weren't enough, there also happened to be an unknown package at the front door. A package addressed to me. A package that I wasn't expecting. A SURPRISE DELIVERY FOR ME??!?!!?!

Again, I straight ripped that shit open.

And what did I see...?

A STACK OF COOKIES ALL FOR ME!!!!!


Attached to the treasure was a note wishing me well from my friend, Danielle.

It was something I totally was NOT expecting because nobody ever sends me surprise goodies. And also, cookies are delicious and they don't just end up on your doorstep out of nowhere.

I loved it.

The cookies were ordered through a website called Cookie Good that Danielle had previously discovered while hunting for unique cookies. And since she knows me well, she knew that sweet edibles were a surefire way to pick me up.

My cookie tower included Caramel Pretzel, Circus Animal, Just Plain Sugar, Red Velvet, Salted Butterscotch, S'mores, Salted Peanut Brownie, and PB&J Blondie.

That night, Boyfriend and I got right to work and made a significant dent. Actually, what happened was Boyfriend ate the Salted Peanut Brownie while I took several bites out of every option. You know, just for quality control.

And I have to say, for not being a fan of chocolate or marshmallow, the S'mores cookie was my favorite. It was crunchy on the outside with softer, gooey bites on the inside. With a glass of ice cold milk, right before bedtime, it was perfect.


It was a delicious and a very thoughtful surprise and I loved it.


So that was my good news.

Was there anything that made you feel special recently?

It's like your colon knew it was going to be ok so it made sure there would be cookies arriving so it could be filled up with all the awesome.

Talking about your colon, when everything is a-ok, is fun.
