My Appendix

Dear Appendix,

It's about time you got off this ship. Look, my body doesn't give free rides to organs that don't pull their weight. If you don't believe me, just ask my extra kidney. On a Monday I heard I didn't need two - on a Tuesday I pulled that sucker out. When I found out I could live with one lung, I sent the right one packing.

So am I glad you started screaming, making you presence known, buckling my abs? Yes, yes I am. I was tired of pulling your lazy butt through my life, anyway. Your infection just expedited your eventual exit. You're like a little brat at Disneyland, crying on vacation. Hey little brat, we didn't have to take you on this trip - in fact, we'd be enjoying ourselves more if you weren't here. Don't think for one second we need you; you're an expendable parasite.

Same goes for you, organs. So you better get with the program because this train waits for no one.

Sincerely,

My Body

  4. you had to get your appendix out?! Did they make you try to jump up and down first? Apparently if you can't do a 'jumping jack' that's a big sign that it's more than just a tummy ache.

    Add GALLBLADDER to the throw-away organs pile.

  9. I'm keeping all my organs for now. You never know when they might come in handy.

  10. It's all about downsizing. In this economy, who can afford to keep organs that aren't contributing to the whole.

  11. I have that exact scar man! In the middle of my belly just under my ribs. Got it after I had my gallbladder out ;/

  12. Maybe that's what my brother-in-law should have done, was write a letter. His exploded in his body. And somehow he didn't die. Apparently that's instant death.

    The appendix is like the terrorist bomber of the organ world. Take your jihad somewhere else, you stupid, useless organ.

  13. Really beautiful and demanding letter.

  14. Wait, did you get your appendix or kidney out? I hope you're feeling better.

    P.S. I'm in no rush to get rid of an ovary or kidney. Mine are NOT on notice.

  16. hahah, very poignant and moving. I haven't had trouble with my Appendix but my guy friend's burst and he has a scar just like that plus he said it was the worst pain he's ever felt.

  18. I'm just seeing this post, made me laugh out loud! Thanks for going through so much pain so that you could write this. (I'm sure that's why you did it, right?)

    Speaking of brats at Disneyland, the summer's over so now half of those brats will be gone. Yay!
