Print Story I now own a Bell of +1 Beer Summoning!

Woke up this morning to an early morning Amazon delivery - a "surgery recovery kit", it was tagged "for ObviousTroll and to SWHTL, we're sorry". 

Turned out to be a few basic tools for recovery - a hot/cold pad, some elastic exercise bands and a little bell that had a bottle opener for a handle. 

So, I rang the bell and, presto! A beer magically appeared! (Well, it was delivered by SWHTL with a rather bemused look on her face....)

We returned the beer to the fridge (it was only 9:30 AM, after all) and SWHTL has made me promise to not abuse the Power of the Bell but, still a fun/happy Monday morning. 

SWHTL and I actually enacted all of that as a photo essay to send to my sister, $HELLONURSE, who sent the kit to me. She's probably sound asleep right now since she's still working as a 3rd shift RN in the COVID unit. The poor woman has been dealing with death and despair since March now - we really need to figure out a way to help her renew her spirits when this is over.

wrt to Covid. My bil is an radiological tech there, and he spent weeks dealing with covid patients. As far as we know, he didn't get it.

he said the good news is that the ICU was finally empty of COVID patients - still plenty in the "serious" ward but my sister is starting to get more rest.
