When I was first asked to attend the meeting in San Fransisco, my immediate thought was...Oh Hell. They haven't read my blog!
And I thought this because I was sure if they had read my blog, they wouldn't really want me to come. I mean...come on...YOU've read my blog. I talk about the lapband for sure! I share my up's and down's. But sometimes I share too much. So when I started giving my intro to my blog in my presentation, I warned them:
If you read my blog...you may find out more than you want to know. For example, my last post was entitled "Sigh. Can we talk about my boobs again". I said sometimes I talk about dangly bits, sometimes I talk about sagging skin. And basically, like one of my 'almost mission statements' for the most part, I just talk about what most people THINK about...but are too well mannered to say.
It was funny being in a room full of WLS surgery patients though. Because at first, everyone was on their best behavior with food and drink. The drink table had diet coke, sprite, Regular Coke, water, tea, etc. Well, you better believe wasn't nobody touching the regular coke.
ahem. But I did. Like a Coke drinking Ninja, I smuggled them back to my room and drank it up in wine glasses on the rocks. However, I am not a photo taking Ninja. I sent this picture to Heather to show her my room...
hmmm...I did not notice the Coke sitting on the table.
Not to worry though...Heather did.
