Short Story

Sunday, January 6, 2013

No really, shortest post ever. The other day, I did a shoulder tic. My shoulder thrust forward so fast that my earring fell into my lap. I was partially amused. A little worried that my tics increase as I am getting older. Pretty sure I will survive though, so mostly amused. :)

Ward Prayer

Friday, January 4, 2013

I love Sundays. I love the break from the rest of the week. A day I don't have to work, yet still have places to go and people to see. The ward I am attending for church gets together every Sunday night for ward prayer- a prayer, some refreshments and socializing. This past Sunday at ward prayer was particularly entertaining. I was chatting with my new friend Jeff, and the topic came up of Tourette Syndrome. I think we chatted about it for a good 20 minutes. I explained what I do, how often and other things, so Jeff definitely knew that I have TS. Just 5 or 10 minutes later, I had a nice, long, loud tic. I think I sounded like a dolphin. Since I was in the middle of a conversation with Jeff, I was looking at him when the tic came. His eyes got wide and even started to cower back as the noise continued. We had JUST talked about this, so his surprise caught me a bit off guard and I started laughing. Joanna and Sister Hughes commented from across the room, and we had a good chuckle. Jeff then asked if that was real, he thought I was pulling his leg or testing him or something. It was then that Cassy piped up and asked what was going on. She had missed the conversation on TS, and had only caught the conversation about television. She thought I was "imitating 'Switched At Birth' or something," which caused another round of giggles.
