(Start with "Monday" if you can. I was hilarious on Monday. Humorous on Tuesday, Mildly amusing on Wednesday, Smirk-inducing on Thursday; Friday... You'll be lucky if I put the words in any particular order.... If you want to see what I'm like on Saturday, please subscribe. That's when I send my weekly update with some blog info and a bit more wacky me to get you through an otherwise sane weekend..........Also, There's a seminar going on Tuesday, Feb. 15 for those of you anywhere near Long Island NY about acupuncture and fertility treatments http://tinyurl.com/4u2u98l . There will be an RE there also.) So, what were we talking about? Oh right. How unnaturally attached I am to the sport of football and its effects on my fertility treatments. Okay, so for four days I've been rambling on about the connection between the superbowl and infertility. And by now you've undoubtedly discovered that there isn't any. The only thing they have in common is "me".
Okay, that's not totally true.
What they both have in common is (drumroll please): In either one-----Anything can happen.
And sometimes those "anythings" can be great.
In the Superbowl, sometimes two great teams play and it's an extremely boring game. Sometimes a team that dominated all season loses and the underdog wins. Sometimes great players do nothing all game and nobodies make a name for themselves. Sometimes the field goal kicker wins the game, not the star quarterback.
Sometimes infertile people end up having babies.
I started to say "Sometimes infertile people get themselves pregnant" but even with modern medicine, I still don't think that's possible.
And when you bet on the Superbowl...anything can happen. I haven't done it in a while but I seem to recall something about grids and randomly getting numbers and if some form of that number was the score at the end of the quarter you won money...but here's the thing... Sometimes you got what seemingly were the suckiest numbers---like, for example"2?" And you can't imagine how in the world you could come out a winner: "So they have to get a safety and no other points. Or, they have to get four field goals and no other points... Or, they have to get two touchdowns and no extra points..." So, here you had the most unlikely combinations to work out...and sometimes they do work out.
And that's how I feel about fertility treatments. You're bombarded by appointments and disappointments; blood tests and pregnancy tests; new medications and newer medications. The downside of the rollercoaster is that you never know what might happen next. The upside, the very pinnacle of the rollercoaster, just as you approach the very top...is that you never know what might happen next.
And that part just might be where you get the thrill of your life.
Didn't this used to be a humor blog? What the hell happened to me? Didn't mean to get all philosophical on you... Just wanted to leave you with some happy thoughts for the weekend. Not funny... but happy nonetheless.
I'll talk with ya again on Monday when I'll surely be back to my old sarcastic self.
