When the chiropractor told me I was going to have to get an MRI, he asked me if I had any place in particular in mind. I told him that I didn't know of anywhere around here and I would take whatever suggestion he gave me. He asked me where I worked and told me there was only one place in Mayfield that does MRI's, Pine Box Medical Center. I told him I had never heard of it. His reply: "Well it's actually called Pine Lake Medical Center but we call it Pine Box because they kill more people than they help." WOW. Obviously, I am NOT going there. He set me up with some place he recommends in Paducah instead.
I heard yesterday that a guy who used to work here in January was arrested this past weekend. He worked here for less than a week before he claimed he hurt his back on the job to get worker's compensation. A couple months ago I drove by his trailer on the way to work and noticed that it was just a pile of blackened rubble. Word is that he torched it himself for the insurance though I haven't cared enough to ask about it lately. But that has nothing on this. He stole a flatbed trailer and took his two small kids with him up to Benton, where I live. He parked this trailer less than 200 yards from a school and began brewing up Meth in the back of it...while his kids watched. BUSTED. It will be a loooong time before he sees the light of day again.
Those of you that know me, know I hate liquor and I strictly drink beer and the occasional Buttery Nipple. However, I have found my 2nd most favoritest little concoction. Equal parts Raspberry Stoli, Orange Juice and Pineapple Juice. It's delicious. Try it :)
Tomorrow should be pretty eventful. I need to get an oil change first thing in the morning, then we have to head to a BBQ and then a Luau to end the evening. Should be interesting to say the least. I would like to spend most of my weekend indoor in the A/C though. The temperature is 99 right now but it feels like 105. And since the A/C in my office is clogged by about 10 years worth of dust, it's 90 in here today. Is that even legal? I'm attempting to drink lots of ice water but every time I take a bottle of water out of the fridge to drink, it gets hot within minutes. Tomorrow the heat index is 110 degrees. Fun stuff.
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!! And congrats to Amanda on her new job :)
