Today's word "oído"

"oi­do"=ear This weekend we had a huge surprise party for Vinay's Mom's birthday. She was so surprised and it worked out really well. Yesterday Vinay left on business trip to Baltimore, he's trying to get as much travel out of the way now before Olivia comes home. So this morning Vinay called me at about 10. He said "Nik you know how you yell at me for using q-tips in my ears", "yes" I answered, "well one got stuck in my ear". I don't buy them for him because I think it's bad when he stickes them in his ears. So when he's at a hotel he uses the ones in the travel kits. Well apparently those are cheap ones because he was cleaning his ears, and when he went to pull it out, the cotton stayed in the ear canal. Now this was funny, but what was funnier , is that he was sharing a hotel room with a colleaguee, and this morning the guy was trying to help pull out the cotton. Neither one of them could get it out, so Vinay decides to just go to his meetings. While trying to participate in the meeting Vinay is talking so loud, everyone looks at him like he's crazy. Why is he yelling, finally the other guy tells them what has happened. They make Vinay go to the emergency room. This is where Vinay called me from. I'm happy to report that theDR removed the cotton, and besides a little embarrassment, no harm was done.

I can top the cotton in the ear thing! When my son Mac was 10 - he came home one afternoon saying his ear felt funny! I thought he ws trying to get out of homework. The next morning same thing - They had a lot going on at school and I really thought he was playing me - BUT - the next day he tells me - he was scratching his ear with a pencil - (OH MY GOD!) and that the eraser came off in his ear. Well then I felt horrible! I took him to the Doc. and the flushed it right out - Mac still has it in a medical jar they gave him:) Like it is some award or trophy!!hahaha! My prayers are for you to get out of PGN soon with NO MORE previos! Maybe this story will help with a smile while you wait for you gorgeous Olivia!

Today's word "idiota" = Idiot!!! Absolutely hilarious!!! I can't wait to say "Now wait a cotton picking minute Vinay"......Keep all sharp objects away from him Nicole!!! You may have to child proof the kitchen cabinets and electrical outlets from MC Q-Tip!!! Instead of V-Diddy, he should be called Q-Diddy.

Nik-Are you making this up----well, I guess not since it's a Vinay story....I never laughed so hard--actual tears came out. I had to wake Scott up to read this to him.

Thinking of you always and anxiously waiting for you to come home!
