Hank is unhappy because he's having to have a chemical peel on his forehead...too much sun back in the day.  Not enough sunscreen.  He was hardheaded and now he's kicking himself.

He was sitting in the dermatologists office last week when he mother called on his cell.  He explained what I just explained in line one of this post and hung up.

His mother called her preacher and asked that Hank be put on the church prayer list because he had, in her words, "brain cancer." Then she went to his uncle's house and told him about the situation.  Since Bobby already knew about the chemical peel, he went ahead and called the preacher to tell him that while any one of us would appreciate prayer, thankfully, brain cancer was not the reason why.

Mercy me!


  1. Oh no!! Reminds me of that old game "telephone" where the original message gets so lost... in any case, everyone can be relieved he doesn't have brain cancer!

  2. This made me giggle! Bless her heart.


  3. Lord Have Mercy! Good thing that kind of news didn't reach the wrong person at the wrong time.
    Same thing happened to me as a child. A friend of mine asked how my grandmama was doing because he heard she had a brain tumor. I went into hysterics (my grandmama is/was my closest friend) anyway...turned out it was a cyst on her head that needed a little lasering. I aged ten years that day and wanted to put that kid 10 feet under.

  4. LOL! I think it felt serious to him!


Please makes me HAPPY!
