Pre-Launch

What does one do the weekend before he flies to Honolulu, Hawaii? First, he continues taking steroids which he began two days ago so that his back is not going to kill him on the trip. When he gets back, he will check again about signing up once more at Pain Management. Secondly, he prays that the dental lab will have his new bottom partial ready so that he can once again eat regular food, including meat. Since his present bottom partial gets snagged on his tongue and won’t let go, a new partial is very necessary. Next, he thanks God that he has a good sprinkler system that will water the yard twice a week while he’s gone. The only problem is that, when going out the door for lunch, Dimitris tripped over a sprinkler head and broke it off at its base. Finding a repairman will not be easy, especially since departure now is four days away. Finally, he realizes that no matter what, the trip for the two of them to Hawaii is going to be terrific and the pre-launch will be forgotten as it will be buried under the thrill and enjoyment of the trip together.
