Negatory, Big Ben

So I came here to tell you that I took my Covid test this morning.
It was negative.

So I am to isolate and then have my surgery on Tuesday.

Things went very quickly. I closed my eyes after telling the nurse I was afraid.
I never saw the swab.  I sat on my hands.  She said it would take five seconds.
It was pinchy and scratchy and hurt when the swab hit the back and swished around.

But, it was not horrible.  It just hurt some.

Now as for my title.  Negatory Big Ben.

As I was going to type Negative as the title....
Negatory Big Ben. Sprang to my mind.

I didn't know where that came from but google did.

It's from a song called Convoy.

McCall. 1975
The song made it to number ONE!

So. That is how my brain works.
Words and lyrics jumping around like pop corn!

And so it goes.

    Donna, I love your honesty! You were afraid, but brave. Our hospital is doing elective surgeries again, and like yours, they are requiring some isolation after a negative virus test. I will say a prayer for you on Tuesday. A prayer for a successful surgery and a quick recovery. Blessings on you. Dee S.

  2. Thanks for letting us know exactly how it went. For sure I'll be praying for you, along with so many others.I

    I say "Negatory, Rubber Ducky" automatically - ok, not a lot, but that's how it comes out, without thought. Now I need to figure out why! Maybe it's the same song? I must go check!

    God bless!

  5. We listened to that song on the way to school when Tyrese was in Kindergarten and first grade. A family favorite. When I was a kid, I had the 45!!!
