Quick! Call the Police!

You've been robbed!


And you probably aren't even aware it happened!

Oh man. I was going to have the best Monday post. The absolute most spell-binding, rivetting, cool post today. But things went awry.

I'm kind of new-age about medical stuff. Sure, I see a regular doctor and all that but I also have a naturopath and have been known to do acupuncture, health regressions and cool open-minded medical things like that.

On Friday I had an appointment with a Cherokee Healer named Lisa. I was kind of disturbed her name was Lisa instead of 'She Who Heals at Dawn' or something.

Don't spit out your coffee like that. It's not very attractive.

So, yea. I was pretty excited about the whole thing.

Part of the 'preparing' stuff for the appointment was no lotion, no deodorant, no jewelry, no hair products, no make-up.

I took my shower like usual, slapped on all the general stuff like always, and then realized I needed to take another shower.

So I did.

I told Mr. Jenny goodbye. He was all kind of weirded out by the whole concept, but hey, it's my health, right? I think he was leary because of the time I went to the little old French lady Healer, but that's another story. (and a good one, too, for another day!)

On my way to the appointment, the healers assistant called me to tell me Lisa had been paged into work for something urgent.

I'm assuming this means the Healer has another job, too, or maybe it was an urgent Healing 911 call. I'm not totally sure about the whole thing.

But now I have to wait to re-schedule the whole Cherokee Healing situation.

Which means you have been robbed of a really good story.

I apologize for this inconvenience.

Sigh...

Oh, you are the BEST storyteller! You make me laugh every time! I've got some similar stories like that - I used to work at an esoteric bookstore and have had lots of treatments like that - just out of curiosity... Can't wait for your appointment to be rescheduled! :-) Hugs, Silke

Kat said...

Thanks so much for the laugh this morning Jenny! Today is going to be h-e-doubletoothpicks day at work and I needed a spirit lifter before I go in! Can't wait to hear about this appt. - hope she reschedules soon! Kat

Paula said...

LMlittleAO! you are too funny, I can't wait to here the story of how it goes!

mub said...

Oh man! You're going to have to tell Lisa how disappointed she made all of your loyal readers ;)

Theresa said...

Bummer Jen and you even double showered!

Debbie said...

Darn it....I can't wait to hear about it. And what is actually taking you to this place? What are you going for, I am nosy I know!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Meantime, I wanna' know... Did you like your "Totally Natural State" so much, by then, that you stayed that way, for the rest of the day?

See? I like to get right down to the *nitty-gritty* of things...

>,-)

Wanda..... said...

You peaked my interest, Jenny... so I googled Cherokee Healer. Very interesting. Can't wait. If it includes a sweat lodge, don't stay in one too long.

Theresa said...

Well at least YOU weren't robbed:) Have a blessed day! HUGS!

Nancy said...

I'm not sure how I got here -- but I like what I see. I'm a bit off my nut as well and feel better when I read about others who do not fit the normal definition of normal. Anyway, looking forward to reading about your visit with "running with fever" or whatever her name is. Sounds interesting. Ciao!

Jeanie said...

I have some Cherokee ancestors and none of them were named Lisa....I'm just saying.

Pondside said...

The name might have been the first hint that all was not as it should be.
Poor you - over-showered and probably tight-skinned from lack of moisturizer. What a way to start the day!

One Mama said...

Seriously, Jenny, I think you could blog about watching grass grow and paint dry and it would still be riveting! I can't wait to hear what's going to happen.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Lisa has ruined my day. I do hope SHE is happy.

Flat Creek Farm said...

Jenny, I can't wait to read allll about this one. Lisa? :) It does sound like something I would go for - that is IF we had a Cherokee healer handy in our neck o' the woods! -Tammy

Jessica B said...

LOL Jenny! Even after two-timing it in the shower and everything! Ah well... this in itself made a pretty good story!

Allie said...

giggling, silly jenny .... move back to Ohio, you will be healed ... bring Steve, the kids, the dogs, and my car lol

Bonnie said...

I will be waiting to hear soon!! You crack me up. I think you are right though, she should change her name at least for business purposes! haha

Holly said...

I don't feel robbed as there was such a good story about being robbed!! And the fact that I now have TWO great stories to look forward to makes the whoe thing quite joyful!!!!!
I think you should suggest the name change to the healer. Bet it would boost her business greatly!!!

By the way...do you look up Cherokee healer in the yellow pages?? How do you find these things???

RH (aka Lucy) said...

Do they have accupunture for instant weight loss because I would totally do it!

Amy said...

2 showers and going granola for nothing! That is a major bummer! Can't wait to hear the stories of the healers, both French and Cherokee.

Tina said...

I hate being robbed. I'm certain, though, that you'll do something grand to make up for this highly inconvenient inconvenience!

Judie said...

If you are having bowel issues, there is an American Indian healer around here by the name of Tootsy--her Indian name is "Stands With A Fistula"

Sue said...

I will be waiting with baited breath.
On pins and acupuncture needles.

=)

NatureGirl said...

Acupuncture needles...good one Sue. I think you owe us TWO stories now!

Cheryl D. said...

Wow, I can't wait to hear the story! I'm Jewish, and before I was married, I went to a Mikvah. It's a spiritual cleansing ritual Jews do if they're ultra religious OR if they're about to have a major life event, like getting married. Anyway, before you can enter the mikvah, you can't wear anything--no lotions, makeup, nail polish. You can't even wear your contact lenses! Nothing is supposed to get in between you and the water.

What you described really reminded me of that. I wonder if Cherokees are the lost tribe?

Hehe!

Unprocessed1 said...

Oouuuuwwww...I wanna go! You know I'm totally into all that new age stuff. Can't wait to hear about it!

Mumsy said...

I will be waiting anxiously to hear all about your appointment with Lisa. Sorry you were all ready and on your way when you were put on hold. Hugs

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Well, we can't have all the same interests. That would be boring. It actually sounds as if you were headed to a mammogram!

Marlene said...

Oh goody! (For me). I love when stuff doesn't happen while I'm on vacation. That way I don't miss anything!!!

I'm BAAAAACK!!!

Jocelyn said...

Oh darn it......I was just getting there and then you ROB ME!!!! I am calling the police!!!

Have a great one sweet friend!!! :-)

The Words Crafter said...

Ahem. I'm thinking about visiting your area. Soon. I'm going to stay somewhere local. Close. Like a large closet if need be. I need to hang out with you. I HAVE to see some of these adventures, experiences, MOMENTS that you invariably.....experience.

Does acupuncture really work? I'm seriously curious....

"Alone again.... naturally!" said...

So, they are still calling it "new age" these days.....hmmm, hasn't it been around for centuries, but I guess whatever is old is new again, lol.
I was grateful that I wasn't drinking coffee at the time of reading this post, or the spewing would have definitely taken place!!!!! Look forward to all your stories! Cathy

Jo said...

911 ... state you emergency

911 ... cllick

edenhills said...

You'll certainly have to tell us how it goes. I admit, I do practice healing touch and Reiki. Of course most of my patients are goats or chickens.

Country Dreaming said...

This was a great story! Can't wait for the real one.

H said...

Maybe your Cherokee healer should be named 'She who answers the call'. Hope it's your call next time. Look forward to hearing about it.

Susannah said...

Luckily I had just finished my coffee before reading so I laughed 'safely'. Lovely story! :-)

Terra said...

Oh I don't know, I am not feeling robbed...this was a pretty good story. Your healer has an assistant and another job and she robbed you of feeling all groovy after your shower for nothing, that is all good...can't wait to "meet" her.

My name is PJ. said...

MWAHAHAHA!!!

Her new Indian name: She Who Reschedules.
