You look ridiculous!
I just had a Make-Over!
When did this become The Oprah Winfrey Show?
Since I revamped the make-up department and brought in my own people.
You fired Ree-Ree DiNucci?
Is that the Ree-Ree DiNucci of the famous South Philadelphia DiNucci’s?
The very one!
Oops! Should I get her back?
I’ll be right back!
Do we have a case this month????
Oh, yes, it’s the case of my son’s facial tics.
Facial tics? Is that the best you could do?
Elaine, these are not ordinary facial tics, you’re going to love this case! Ahem! Here’s the newest installment of “Who’s sick this month at kelly’s house?”… a riveting story of high drama and edge-of-your-seat excitment!! Hello????
My son, let’s call him “U of Em”…
Your son is a college?
Is there something wrong with that? Anyway, he had developed what appeared to be facial tics and some strange mannerisms. I noticed he was clearing his throat often and between throat clears was blinking his eyes several times very rapidly. He was not aware of what he was doing, and when asked he would say nothing was wrong! He would also open his mouth wide and sort of “stretch out” the area below his nose. These movements were repetative and would continue for several minutes at a time.
He had also been soooo sensitive, irritable and grumpy-not his usual self at all. We recently decided to sell our house, which, of course, would mean many changes for the children. Elaine suggested giving ——— 30C, which I gave.
His mood improved immediately, the grumpiness being the first to go; the over-sensitivity much-improved by the next day. The blinking and stretching just sort of “faded” to the point that I forgot about it until they started up again after 6 days. At that point I gave another dose. It’s been 4 days since then and all symptoms have improved. There was never a relapse of the mentals. I did notice one episode of face-stretching today but throat clearing is gone and the rapid eye blinking is almost gone. I plan to re-dose if the symptoms return or increase.
So, how’s that for entertainment, Elaine? Elaine? Elaine, wake up!
Don’t shoot! Oh, it’s only you.
