Butterfly and Pearls

Hi there...

Well I finally got back from the Doctor's surgery.  What a place, can you imagine voluntarily going into a germ riddled room hoping to get well? 
And yet that is precisely what we do when we visit the doctors!  The waiting room is a mass of virus and bacteria just waiting to attack the already weakened immune systems of the various unsuspecting sick people in attendance. 
I am grimacing in pain (everytime I move - my back really is painful), when a little boy approachs me, he's holding out a book (sticky from his runny nose) with a hopeful expression on his face, my face-pulling sends him screaming back to his mother complaining that "the scary lady in the corner is going to get him!"  (well at least I had peace and quiet from that quarter!). 
And then SHE comes in... you know the one.  That person, the one who is attending the doctors but looks as fresh as a daisy, with perfect make-up, perfect clothing, perfect everything, and you look at her and think what's she doing here anyway? she doesn't even look sick!  You hope she says something mean to someone so that you know she's not that perfect, but no, she's kind (especially to the little boy still staring at me as if I'm Hannibal Lecter) and she polite (and you hate her even more) and then you feel guilty for being so mean (excusing yourself... you are ill after all).  That is until she is called in before you, and then you go right back to thinking horrible things about her!  You can see I had a fun time in the doctors.
I made this putterfly and bearly card, sorry (I'm a little high on the pain killers!)...
