A friend of mine has to have a radiation treatment after having her thyroid removed and she was telling me about all the precautions she has to take. She's a conscientious person and will follow the doctor's instructions to the letter. I had always assumed that people who are possibly emitting radiation would be under some sort of mandatory quarantine. Guess what, folks. They aren't.
Suppose there are people who have had radiation therapy and must go out in public out of necessity or some dire need. As if I'm not paranoid enough about stair rails, shopping carts and bathroom doors, now I have to wonder if the poor bastard standing next to me in line at the cleaners glows in the dark.
When my friend told me about the radiation that will be coursing through her body, I looked at her and said, "Damn! I sure hope it doesn't make it easier for the aliens to find you." So, I'm making her a tinfoil hat. That's what friends are for.
Here's a picture of the new hat I made for her. Stylish, don't you think?
