Topic: Always keep one in your pocket (or purse) so you are always prepared!
So, did I get your attention??? HA HA!!
I just had to tell you this story...my husband and I are going in Disney World in October for our 10th anniversary. It was all his idea, as I would never have thought of exposing my knees and fat butt to that kind of trip. But, the more he talked about it, the more it sounded like fun.
So, anyway...I was talking to a good friend about the trip and telling her I was worried about all the walking. (She is a veteran of Disney World and I have NEVER been.) She suggested a certain type of shoe that I had never heard of. They are fairly expensive, but she swore by them. OK, I'm game. Found one of the stores in our "fancy schmancy" mall (that gives you an idea of how expensive they are...remember, I normally buy my shoes online at Joe's New Balance OUTLET) so I stopped by last Friday after work.
I had a fantastic salesguy who was very patient and showed me numerous pairs of shoes. (I did end up buying two pair, he was a GREAT salesguy!) Almost as soon as I walked in the door, he asked about my "white" bracelet. I also wear the yellow one, but everyone knows what that is for...
I explained about cholangiocarcinoma and told him the highlights of having this cancer (or the lowlights, depending on how you look at it...). I told him I had found this website when I was sick and how you all were doing so much good for people like me who are lost and have no idea what is going on.
HE ASKED ME FOR A BRACELET. Unfortunately I did not have one with me. I had sent all but one to my daughter. I was pretty bummed about it, but I left him with promises to return with a picture after our trip.
When I got home, I went to check out my new shoes (every woman loves new shoes!!) and I couldn't believe it...one pair was not the ones I meant to buy! Oh no, I was going to have to go back and exchange and what a hassle and blah, blah, blah...
OK, let's see if I can shorten this story a little bit...I knew I was going back and I knew he REALLY wanted a bracelet, so I found the extra one I had left and trotted back to the store.
He was so embarrassed about selling me the wrong shoes but you should have seen the smile on his face when I gave him the bracelet. He put it right on his wrist and promised to wear it. He promised!
I told him to check out the website so he could see what kind of miracle was standing in front of him at that moment (you can always check out my story if you really want to by searching "scragots"). He said he would check it out. I told him he could donate too if he wanted to!
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that the bracelets work. It's getting the word out. So always have a spare! You never know when you might need one!
Love and prayers to all of you,
