Since I'm writing a Thriller series, I thought it more appropos for me to give a brick in the head weekly award than a slap on the head.
I have been so busy lately, that I have neglected Blog Trek again. Giving this weekly cyber-award will let me keep on target with all my own deadlines while updating the poor ole blog on a more regular basis.
I have seen some pretty stupid things, lately. They have given me fodder for thought, and hopefully will to the readers.
My first brick goes to the healthcare worker in the hospital who did not ask a patient if she was lactose intolerant (allergic to milk products) before telling her that eating yogurt on a daily basis would be beneficial to her health. Perhaps it would to many people, but not to this woman, who endured weeks of gastro-intestinal miseries until I pointed out that yogurt comes from cows.
She might deserve a half-brick for not knowing the origin of yogurt, but since she also did not know that cottage cheese and sour cream came from our friends the moo-moos, I have to put her in the category of the ignorant.
Since giving her yogurt away, she reported a lot of relief.
