By the time you read this I will have a new nose. Not really all that new perhaps, but certainly improved on the inside as far as the deviated septum is concerned.
If things flow as they did back in October, I will be spending one or more nights at another prison near the medical center. Hopefully I will be back here by Friday, and not get stuck over the weekend without any of my usual creature comforts.
I am not supposed to have anything to eat or drink after midmight tonight. Since today was my usual commissary day, I have already had my pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream, tuna with pasta and will probably have a Hershey's bar around 11 PM.
The ironic thing is that with the Retreat that we just had this weekend, I ended up eating six prison meals in a row. With the exception of the chicken legs we had on Easter eve, that is probably the only chow hall food I have had since before Christmas. Now I will be "forced" to endure more prison food while I sit waiting to be transferred back here.
Another one of the things about the recent Retreat weekend was listening to the various life stories of the outside volunteers and how they have been able to take some very adverse life situations and end up being in a place where they are able to enjoy life. I will write more about this once I get back.
