Veronica had her 5 year post-surgery check up today. They did an echo and the patch is still working perfectly! She looks and feels marvelous.
As usual, the most interesting thing about the appointment came after all the doctor stuff was done.
On our way to the car we stopped to look at the giant fish tank in the hallway and got stopped by the hospital’s A/V department to see if we would let them film us for a Mother’s Day video they are doing.
I hadn’t taken any special effort in doing my make up or hair this day so for me this was a “wrong place/wrong time” event, but I still said yes and signed the release form.
They videotaped us pretending to look at the fish for a while. Then they videotaped us looking at each other. Then we looked at the fish. Then we looked at each other. Repeat twelve times and that’s a wrap.
After that we went to a nearby bench to wait for the valet to bring our car around. The A/V team came up to us again and asked if they could shoot us waiting. You may not know this about us yet, but we are very interesting when we wait.
So they videotaped us sitting on a bench for a while. Then they videotaped us looking at each other. Then we sat on the bench. Then we looked at each other.
But that’s not all!
Next they had Veronica pretend her shoe came off and she had to walk over to me with her shoe in her hand so I could put it on and then pat her head lovingly.
So all that to say, we will soon be starring in THE MOST INTERESTING COMMERCIAL IN THE WORLD.
