well last week was some what eventful. it all started out on monday, my niece, (she's my close friend joe's daughter who calls me uncle george, and i call her my niece) sami, called me from her cheerleading camp in tears and said that she couldn't get ahold of her dad and that my cell phone was the only other number she knew. i asked her if she was alright and if something was wrong, and she said that her instructor had yelled at her because she didn't bring the right pair of shoes (who knew you had to have a certain pair of sneakers for cheerleading, not i), that she had left the right ones at home, and that she was suppose to bring $45 for the uniforms, but she thought that you weren't suppose to pay the money until school started. she wanted to know if her dad was with me, but he wasn't. i told her that i would try to get a hold of him and deliver the message. i got ahold of him the next morning by driving over to his house. i told him that sami had called in tears and told him what had happened. unfortunately joe was just on his way out and he asked me if i could take the money and sneakers to her. i, of course, said yes and then i was on my way to cheerleading camp with $45 and a pair of sneakers. so i get there and i have no clue on where to go. and of course, there is no one around to ask. so i walk aimlessly around (i'm sure i was walking in circles) until i see a parent. i tell them why i am here and they tell me where the gym that the girls are in is at. i walk into the gym and there is sami, on top of the pyramid. she sees me and gets this big smile on her face and runs over to me. i gave her the money and sneakers. her instructor started to walk over and the look that her instructor had was priceless! sami turned to her instructor and said "amy, this is mr george clooney, my uncle. he's brought me my money and correct shoes" her instructor's face turned all red. then i leaned over to sami and gave her a kiss on the cheek and she gave me one as well. all the other girls in the room were starring at us, and sami told me (when she got home thursday) that all the girls were jealous.
so then later that day, i was walking outside in these sandales (no, not in the girly way) i had bought when some particle flew into my shoe and i stepped on it and it went threw my 2nd toe on my left foot. it really hurt. i didn't pay too much attention to it, but then the next day it hurt really bad to walk on it and touch it. so i went to the doctors and the next thing i knew i was on my way to the er. do you know how ackward it is to be a patient in the er when you used to work on er? anyways, turns out it was a piece of glass that i had stepped on and it was embedded in my toe. so they had to remove it by digging into the skin and now i have stiches. yes i know, fun. it still hurts to walk. i didn't get up off the couch on wednesday. lol
so that was my week. how was everyone elses week?
