Oi, me 'ead

We just had a ginormous company meeting to discuss our new health insurance.


Which is both worse than and more expensive than what we're paying now. BUT not as expensive as staying with the old insurance company and incurring a 35% increase in what we pay come April 1st.

Thirty-five percent.


That's criminal.

Now, of course, my head is swimming with Option 1 and Plan Y and HSA and FSA and how sick do I think we'll get and how many crowns will we let the dentist rip us off for in the next 8 months?

My co-workers and I have decided that instead of having to traverse the maze of insurance, we'll just 'play doctor' on each other. One of the supervisors gave me a glorious neck massage and accu-pressure treatment after the meeting, because my head hurt so bad I was contemplating cutting off my cabeza with a plastic knife.

So. Sergei. If you smell Strange Man Cologne on me later, just know it was all in the name of medicine and lower insurance premiums.

They say that wine is good for your heart and whiskey is good for colds. Keep that in mind, much cheaper than a visit to the doctor.

I think orgasms are good for stress relief too.

Just saying....

Ain't insurance coverage grand? But you have to have it.
Are you on Synthroid for hypoactive thyroid? How much? My doctor just put me on it today...hope it helps me take off weight. My hair falls out when I comb it too.

Just remembering those meetings gives me a headache. But you gotta figure its pretty bad when you're willing to consider cutting off your head with a plastic knife. Better make sure you're covered under your new policy for that first!
