Something about snails and puppy dog tails

I can't stop thinking about July 12th, 9AM. Hormones Day. HD12.
I was worried that I will go there and get checked out and then have to wait forever again while they get the results and scientifically determine a prescription for me. I was worried that my appointment may be in 1 month, but the actual prescription may be even further away. Luckily, as with many things in my life, I coincidentally ran into one of the few people in Saskatoon to have recently gone through this same experience. I was at Mystic Java when in walked M, who said that yes, the Dr will need to take some tests and check a few things out, but only to get a baseline. Those tests are only used to see later on how the hormones have affected me over the next few months, so they don't need to have results before they prescribe anything, they just need results before my next visit. So that means I *will* walk away with hormones on that day. I can't remember the last time I have been this excited. I think that old nursery rhyme says girls are made out of sugar and spice and everything nice, but the truth is girls are made of lots of estrogen, relatively no testosterone, and a couple of X chromosomes. I can't do the extra X, but July 12th begins setting up the other two, and two out of three aint bad.
