Ajoleblon...A Cajun Tale

This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

Who'd a thunk it?

There are just some things in your lifetime you never expect your father to tell you or ask you. One such thing occurred with me today.

My father is here for the weekend to visit his mother who is my 94 year old grandmother. He was up and had left for the nursing home before I even arose. When I got into the bathroom this morning I noticed all my vanity drawers were open but I figured Dad was looking for something and being old and a man *snort*, he didn’t shut the drawers properly.

Even though it is Saturday, I had to go into work to do a little book work and when I returned my Dad was back from the nursing home and these words came out of his mouth and I literally ROFLMAO. 

"Sharlene, I hope you don’t mind, I borrowed one of your "kotex".

Now we must remember, he, being in his 70's has only known them as "kotex" and not "pads" because that’s what they were called way back when I was a youngster and living in his household.

A little history. My dad had and beat prostate cancer 3 years back and he has a problem with leakage. It seems he forgot his pads at home. I had the biggest chuckle over that because it was something I did not ever expect. Dad has always been such a manly man and you realize when they get older those things just don't bother them any longer.  They accept it.  It also cleared up the mystery of the opened vanity drawers.

I actually think it was very manly of him to even mention it to you!  And, at least he has the good sense to use one!

I have a very bad bone infection, and have alot of drainage, and the Kotex is a very good sterile bandage and cheaper than regalur bandages .
