Shocking but true...

Isn't the world just grand?! My friend has a son who is 16. Her sister used her sons phone to take a photo while they were out. Her sister wanted to look at the photo so she scanned through the photos looking for it and up pops a photo of a girl naked from the waist up. Holy ....! She calls my friend. I hate to tell you this but.... My friend calls her son over. Ah, D I got a call from the phone company (? whatever works right) saying that one of our phones has an inappropriate image on it. I know it's not mine or Daddy's or R's so that leaves you. He says "oh, yeah. It's probably this one." real cool like that. So she says "Ah, D, who is this girl and why do you have a photo of her naked on your phone?" Oh, she's a 9th grader (14 years old!!!!) and she took a picture of herself and sent it to her boyfriend. Then they broke up and he has sent it to EVERYONE in school and they have sent it to EVERYONE. It's pretty much everywhere now. GET THAT PHOTO OFF OF YOUR PHONE THIS INSTANT AND DO NOT SEND THAT KIND OF IMAGE TO ANYONE!!! Don't you realize that you could get in trouble for passing it on too?!!! My friend called the high school to let the principal know what was going on and he said "yes, we know about it but it didn't happen on school grounds so there isn't anything we can do about it."

Can you imagine your daughter doing something so stupid?! I immediately had a talk with Miss Molly and Mr too cool Jason about it... Molly's like "MOM!!! I wouldn't do that!" Good because now you realize just how stupid it is!!! That girl has to face these people for 4 years! And they all have seen her photo or have it on their phone! And it might just be on the INTERNET!!! Stupid Stupid Stupid. And then there is the boy. If he's a senior and 18 (like Jason will be in his senior year) he could be charged with statutory rape or possibly child pornography!!!

And today I was going to Pennsylvania with a friend of mine to buy some amazing sewing machine feet for my Bernina and some fabric. But instead I did this with Mark all day...

I said "oh, it's okay--don't worry about that! I didn't really want to go anyway." Oh good then you didn't miss anything. "Right." (Inside it was boo hoo -- just lunch with my friend, lots of laughing, fabric shopping and sewing machine foot purchasing. But no, I didn't miss a thing.) I'm almost starting to like visiting the ER :O)

The good thing is that they gave Mark some new heavy duty drugs and he will now be seeing the surgeon on Tuesday instead of December 2! So that is good news. The bad news is that he is in more pain now than ever. I think we will be back in the ER before Tuesday. It's bad.
