Me: So can you fix this without touching me? [hopeful voice, explanatory hand gestures:]. Perhaps you could use your laser vision (like Superman) ?
Dr. Cheryl: 😑… you know it’s weakness, right?
Me: [insulted. I fired RIGHT UP]. BOOOOOOOOO 😑👎. I called after her as she left the room 😑. She gave me therapeutic exercises. They helped immediately and I’m doing them at home. (My R knee was acting up). Dr. Cheryl was supposed to be in her office treating someone else but she came out to check my form and caught me goofing off. 😑 SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO STAY IN HER OFFICE.
Dr. Cheryl: Where are you going?!?! ARE YOU TRYING TO LEAVE?!?
Who, me? 🤷🏻♀️ I’m just minding my own beeswax.
I did try to leave mid session once with Sister Maria.
What he said: BRB
What I heard: Bye! See you Friday.
He came back and I was so mad when he pointed to the floor and was all, Give me another set. 😑
Me: [resting casually on bench] WHAT?!?! I’ve got my BACKPACK on. I DONE DID my HAIR. I was gonna go get a snack or a 💅🏻.
In my defense, my hearing was deteriorating rapidly at the time.
Then I was like, I never did that to Coach R.
Then I was like, BAHAHAHAHA!! No, wait – I DID!!
2015 – I tried to sneak out while he was training in the back and I was supposed to be running in the front. But I jumped ship. And when I emerged from the locker room, R was casually leaning against the reception desk waiting for me like, c’mon, Lemme get a bp cuff for you.
Me: 😑 [plans FOILED]
R: I heard you coughing. 😑😑😑😑 #avmsurvivor #strokesurvivor #lifeismysport #learninghowtolive #shreddedgrace #deaf #hoh
