Marco Thylo Entries for the Lightbulb Win a T-Shirt Contest
When I wrote last week’s Marco Thylo, I was riding the snatch express, venting, lamenting and ranting my guts out. After reading everyone’s entries (punch lines) to the question, How many women and, or men with thyroid disease or thyroid cancer does it take to change a light bulb?, I was so busy laughing my ass off, I found the nearest stop and promptly removed my World Wide Web of an ass from the train.
THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. Your entries were hilarious and fabulous. But, enough about me. You have one week to vote on the winning entry. The winner will receive a t-shirt from the Dear Thyroid store. Vote your hearts out. They’re all so good, I don’t know how you’ll be able to choose a winner. I know I couldn’t. Good luck everyone. You’re all winners in my book.
1. AMY: None. We are all too tired, our energy is drained, and our brains are too fuzzy.
2. MONICA: No need to change it. Those with insomnia would rather keep it off so they can try to get some sleep and the rest are too tired to care.
3. JOANNA: Oh, the light bulb burned out? I thought that was thyroid fog sending me into a new realm of mental darkness.
4. HD: Our endo docs don’t want the bulb changed, they much prefer us in the dark.
5. LOLLY: Light bulb, hahaha don’t make me laugh, never mind how many people does it take, don’t you mean how many months. Now if I hit that switch one more time I’m going to go fucking crazy, now where’s that god damn flower bulb!!!
6. M: Oh, we couldn’t possibly change it on our own. There would probably be a specialist brought in to assess the situation, a surgeon saying ‘take it out’, a doctor saying ‘leave it in’, friends would drop by to say ‘it looks fine to me’ o’it’s changed already just get over it and move on’. We’d need our family close by for moral support and we’d probably need to log on to ‘Dear Lightbulb’ regularly to purge our pent up feelings of frustration, turmoil and regret at ever setting eyes on the screwy little bulb in the first place;-)
7. KATHY: Um, I had my light bulb tested.. Even though it’s not working, the electriciocrinologist says that it is working just fine. Funny, it doesn’t feel like it’s working. It’s pretty dark in here. Is it all in my head?
8. CASSANDRA: Well you see that depends, how long do you have to listen? It all started when I was misdiagnosed the first of 10 times.. . .
9. SARINA: three doctors three opinions, 2 surgeries, 2 infections, 2 pending cat scans and two weeks for the results, I wish the light bulb would go out for two weeks so I didnt have to think about it, see anyone or worry for two whole weeks, I couldnt even get out of bed today, it was a miserable day times 2;;;ok tired again back to my blankey and pillow.
10. ZARI: Since I was in too much of a daze to either pay the electric bill or notice that it’s dark, I don’t see the point of questions about light bulbs. Besides the 131 made me glow in the dark
11. NATASHA: Lightbulb?? I don’t need no stinkin’ lightbulb! I just need to channel all my hyper energy into the outlights and it will be brighter than a college student at midterms.
12. PAULA: It takes one, but she never changes it because she’d rather sit in the dark and feel oh so very depressed and special, and it gives her something else to cuss about.
