Life in the Big City

My phone tells me it’s 102 degrees at this very moment and for once I believe it. When I opened the back door this morning it felt like I was walking onto the surface of another planet, leaving the space/earth ship after a hearty breakfast of helium filled pancakes.
On this here space/earth ship, the pancakes are made with helium. Never seen anything like it, they tasted good though I was hungry less than one hour later. Chinese helium filled pancakes.*

After breakfast I made my excruciatingly slow descent into the cold pool and swam until I felt shaky. My patient did laps around the pool and house. She’s doing very well. What a marvel these bodies of ours are!
They can be cut open and sewn up like cloth and be better than new.  I feel so lucky to have one.  A horse body would be cool too but then I couldn’t wear dresses.

For lunch, the patient treated us to PF Changs take-out. She ordered on-line then I drove to the restaurant, parked at the designated take-out spot and was just dialing the number on the sign when the waiter appeared at my window and said my order was ready and did I want a complimentary beverage while I waited for him to bring out my order. Life in the big city.

*Let me know if you want the recipe. Here it is. Gluten free pancake mixed with hemp milk and one egg, a tablespoon of grapeseed oil and a mashed up banana. whip vigorously and pour into a hot greased skillet. Flip after a couple of minutes, cover and cook another few minutes, take cover off and behold, a balloon shaped pancake.
