I’m on a lot of painkillers, part 2

Okay.  So turns out that my finger is broken, but only in the way that the rest of me is broken, i.e., no bones are shattered but it’s still technically fucked up and useless.  Thus, I’ve had to type everything this week using one hand and I deserve a medal for this.  But I have to write down part two of my cruise experience because I’m on a lot of painkillers and if I don’t do it soon I’m not going to remember it.  If you’re finding this blog for the first time ever I recommend reading Part 1 first because this is going to be confusing for even my most ardent reader.  Or maybe just skip all this and go look at pictures of kittens.  Your choice.

Day 2:  So we arrived someplace in the Bahamas, I think?  And then we took another boat to some other place but I don’t know the name of it.  God, I should work for the Travel Channel.  The important thing here is that we ended up on a tiny pirate island filled with dolphins and crumbling 100 year old towers and rumors of buried treasure.  It was awesome until we were packing up to leave and Hailey got lost for the first time ever and I had a panic attack that I still haven’t recovered from.

"Look mommy! My shadow is a monster! Also, get your xanax out because as soon as you turn around I'm going to run back to the boat and hide in there because your panic attacks amuse me." She didn't say that last sentence out loud but it was totally implied.

Day 3:  Hailey begged me to let her go to the on-board kids camp so I dropped her off and on my way back to the room I realized that I’d lost my lipstick, which is a HUGE FUCKING DEAL.  I have to have lipstick on at all times or I feel naked so I went to the gift shop to buy some, except the cheapest tube they had was exactly the price of an unlucky number that I avoid at all costs so I asked the clerk if I she could charge me a dollar extra and she said no because she wants the ship to sink, apparently.  I told her that I’d just give her a tip and she said she wasn’t allowed to take one which is ridiculous because I’m supposed to tip the waitress who brings me over-priced drinks but I’m not allowed to tip a clerk who might very well be keeping the entire ship from sinking by simply not making me have to use that unlucky number?  I explained that that was totally ridiculous and she agreed although I’m not sure if she agreed for the same reasons and she recommended that I buy the only other tube of lipstick they had, which was $35 but I felt pretty certain that Victor would probably sink the boat intentionally out of spite if he found out I’d spent $35 on a lipstick because of a phobia, so instead I bought the unlucky number lipstick and then I promptly ripped off my thumbnail trying to open the lipstick package.  I blame Victor for this since the $35 lipstick would never have caused this sort of injury.  It was bleeding profusely and the clerk offered to call the ship doctor but I waived it off because it was kind of a relief to know that my bad luck was probably over and also because I knew that if I didn’t go lay down I was going to pass out because that’s what happens whenever I see blood.  So I quickly walked back to the elevator to take me to my room but my thumb was bleeding like mad by that time and there was a small puddle of blood beside me when another couple walked up and looked at it warily.  “Someone spilled their wine” I explained, both because it sounded more festive and also because I didn’t know if they passed out at the site of blood too and I didn’t want all of us passing out at once into a puddle of my blood because that’s unsanitary and also because it would look like some kind of drive-by shooting to whoever found us and that didn’t seem fair to anyone.

Then I got back to the room and used the head of a creepy towel animal as a tourniquet and drank some booze from the mini-bar which I know was over-priced but I was in pain and it was medicinal so stop judging me.  Then I sat down and read a book where the swanky main character toasts to the furniture and I was all “That’s awesome.  I never drink to furniture” so I toasted to the coffee table and the lounge chair and I felt very cosmopolitan but then I reread the paragraph and it turns out she was toasting to the “future”, which makes more sense but is incredibly dull.  Then I toasted the buffet and took horrific pictures of my mutilated thumbnail so I could show Victor what he’d done to me while he was out having a work meeting.   I might have had too much to drink.  Again, I blame Victor.

Day 4:  We’re supposed to be flying home but we have 7 hours before our flight so at the airport we found a guy who said he’d be happy to take us on a tour around Miami.  Because there’s nothing safer than getting into a car with a stranger who hangs around the airport.

Summary of the tour:  “Look kid!  A horsey!”

Hailey, horsey, little Havana.

“And there’s Humphrey Bogart in a car.  For some reason.”

I don't know either, y'all.

“And here’s the shop where you can buy all your animal penises.  I’ll be back to pick you guys up in few hours.”

Yeah. Go back and read that again.  It’s not a typo.

So was the raccoon giant or is the penis giant? Because I can't tell which noun is being modified. The cashier didn't know either and seemed surprised I was even asking her about penis bones. Obviously she doesn't read my blog. Also, YOU WORK IN A SHOP THAT SELLS PENISES. Know your shit, lady.

No shit, y'all. I can't even make this stuff up.

And I didn’t buy any of the penises because I’d already fell in love with Pocahontas Wikipedia who was hiding on a back shelf but I couldn’t afford him so instead I bought a bunch of necklaces with dead bugs in them.  This is when Victor threatened to cancel my credit card because he doesn’t understand art.

Why yes, they *are* totally bad-ass.

In short?  Best Miami tour ever.  And none of us got stabbed.  Bonus.

Comment of the day: Through a weird series of events, I actually own a raccoon penis bone, still in its original package… wait, let me rephrase that, still sealed in a little plastic bag. (The *original* original package would be a dead raccoon’s penis, which would be a weird thing to have lying around the house.) Anyway, I have no use for the damn thing, so it’s yours if you want it.  Also, I need to stop reading your blog at work, because screaming things like, “Oh my God, I’ve got a raccoon penis bone!” never fails to draw concerned looks from my employees. ~ Evn

  37. Okay, guys, here’s the thing with the raccoon penis bone (I swear I am not making any of this up). In the rural South, back in the day, if a boy had a crush on a particular girl, he’d give her a raccoon penis bone tied with red thread to wear as a necklace. The bone itself–also called a “baculum,” “coon dong” or “Texas toothpick”–could also be worn by men as a symbol of their potency or (ahem) endowment: Think of it as voodoo Viagra. If Viagra was made out of raccoons. Or something.

    As a side note: Jenny, through a weird series of events, I actually own a raccoon penis bone, still in its original package… wait, let me rephrase that, still sealed in a little plastic bag.

Sometimes the carpet gets in on the act. He trips me and then a chest of drawers jumps in front of me and leans his pointy edges towards my plummeting skull. Fuck them. They can toast there own damn selves.

  84. Wow what an adventure..i almost died laughing at the whole raccoon penis thing..btw i love your dead bug necklaces totally bad ass and you are right to blame victor.

    ps: a little info for you in case you care…
    Throughout many cultures, the penis bone has been used in rituals and is believed to possess the power and virility of the animal to which it once belonged.

    In Chinese traditional medicine, tiger and bear bone penises are considered aphrodisiacs!
    c
    oh and also this because i found it somehow weirdly interesting and thought maybe you should know it too..The largest baculum in the mammal kingdom belongs to the walrus, which can reach a length of 30 inches (75 cm): as big as a human femur! Even large dogs have a 10 cm baculum!

    Most mammals have a unique bone called baculum (also penis bone, penile bone or os penis) in their penis. The only mammal species without baculum are the humans, horses, donkeys, rhinoceros, marsupials, rabbits, cetaceans (whales and dolphins), elephants and hyenas.

    But baculum is present in most primates, rodents, carnivores, seals. The penis bone is kept in the abdomen and, when needed, a set of muscles push it into a sheath in the fleshy part of the penis.

    It enters within the erectile tissue, providing rigidness to aid during the copulation. The penis bone varies in size and shape by species and its characteristics are sometimes used to differentiate between similar species.

    okay and now i am done because i am creeping myself out that i know any of this and wondering if i have something wrong with my brain…

  87. Omg I thought I was going to be the only person in the Midwest with an almost obsession with the raccoon penis bones! I try to get hunters to bring me penis bones so I can make pins out of them for the Harley riders which they just love I might add. The process is somewhat tedious and I can’t eat chicken for quite some time following the “boiling process” but anyway I guess raccoon pelt sales are down and no one is hunting raccoons which means NO PENIS BONES!! How a woman supposed to suppliment her income without the BONE? Maybe I can ship them in from Miami although I don’t know if the bones in Miami are as big as the ones in the midwest but I’m sure they’ll do. No bones, Scarybug.

  90. I toast my recliner every evening, then I toast the ice packs for my back. I have decided that, even though the “good” meds take the pain away, I don’t want the people at the drugstore to think I am addicted to them, and give each other knowing looks when I come in, even though I am walking funny and have that look of agony on my face. They probably think I am faking that just to get the “good” drugs. Ice works almost as well, anyway, and I don’t get the blind staggers from mixing wine and narcotics. It also allows me to continue to run with scissors without the fear of bumping into something and putting my OWN eye out.
    Thanks for the laughs, Jenny!

  92. Last time I was in NYC, I walked into a store with animal penii, teeth, claws, change purses made of toad corpses and other vile items, and I left, disgusted, because who would ever buy such things? Sadists, is who.

    Then I had a drink next door, and came back and bought a penis, a piece of petrified dinosaur shit, and a vile of wooly mammoth fur. “For the kids” I told myself. “I’m buying these for the kids.” (What kids? I don’t have kids!) I’m telling you, setting up that shop next to a bar was a genius move, like the whole Krispy Kreme next to the Curves tactic.

    So there’s a moral here, which is: Don’t judge, lest ye buy penis bone. Or: Let he who is without whale penis cast the first stone. Or: people in glass houses shouldn’t throw dinosaur shit. All three of those are in the Bible, I think.

I injure myself often, I’m a klutz, so I keep a list of cool stories to use for those injuries that are way better than “I fell on the dog’s leash” or “I stepped on a little person and skidded across the kitchen floor.” I tell everyone else who is accident prone to carry such a list, but you do not seem to need one. Unless of course you actually tripped on a little person and are just blaming Barnaby- shame on you Jenny. Or that is awesome, one of the two.

    Also when I say little person I mean the plastic toys, not you know a human little person cause I would have no idea what they were doing on my kitchen floor.

  111. So much ado over the penis bones. Novel & interesting, yes, but the lipstick is so much more important. Had I been with you, you would have totally bought the $35 one – that girl way back in the comments took the words right out of my plumped & pouty & perfectly lined and glossed mouth. I can’t even answer the telephone without lipstick on. I seriously resemble a corpse otherwise. AND, you were on a business trip, helloooow??? You charge absolutely everything to your cabin. Pre-tax dollars, that was really only like a $27 lipstick, and when you deduct for manicured thumbnail and blood loss and bandaids and mini-bar emergency anesthesia, heck, they owe you for that lipstick. You should have used a life-line on that cruise and phoned a friend. But don’t beat yourself up – number phobias will do that to a person. I have a thing about even numbers – can’t stand them. I always buy seven apples or five potatoes or three boxes of pasta or 13 bottles of wine or 5 bottles of gin. I actually had another baby because I couldn’t stand going through life with an even number of children. Subconsciously, anyhow.

  112. OH and I forgot about the “fashion quotient” – a little thing my Mom shared with me long ago: you divide the price of a must-have item (granted, it’s usually something like a wonderful jacket, or the perfect little black dress, but, given my lipstick addiction, I have always “applied” it) by the number of times you will wear it, and voila, you have your reason to go ahead. $35 divided by thousands? That lipstick is practically paying you to sport it.

  114. Penis bones are called baculums. I know this because we learned to ID different baculums in college. Beavers, raccoons, squirrels, porcupines, and several others. We actually got a grade on it. I do not know why. But, if I ever end up on a crime scene show with a severed penis at least I’ll know what it belongs to. I ended up making a pair of mink baculum earrings and a necklace.So much better than a mink coat…
