What I want for Christmas?


Sunday night my Bionic Buddy, Abbie and I were chatting. I told her we need to bling out our CIs - you know put our fake diamonds, rubies and pearls. The good stuff. So I google "Bling cochlear Implant". Look what came up, a bling out hearing aid. Wow, I want one! It is only $50,000. Since I wear two it is only $100,000!
Showed my husband that I found my Christmas gift. I had to have it and I'm giving him a long time to save. He fell to the floor and his mouth dropped. Then he said will insurance cover any of this??????? No, duh....my response.
So I'm off to Walmarts, since that is all I can afford, to find something to bling my CIs. Wonder if Foxy Brown has one (Abbie's comment).

ROFL!! You should get you some of those stick-on-rhinestones that people put on their cell phones...you would look maaahvelous, dahling!

Wow, I can't let my kids see that. Lots of people do put those stick ons like Jennifer said, I just coincidently blogged about this this morning! Having a little girl we always do fun decor!

Gee, I wonder if Voc Rehab will pay for these hearing aids? I'm almost ready to get new ones... Probably get beaten up by someone wanting to steal them and sell to Pawn Shop!!

Wish my name was Rockefeller or Vanderbilt...

oh wow, that's just far FAR too fancy for my liking. Too shiny and sparkly. :)

What can you come up with for the guy who wants to show a touch of class?

Abbie said...

LOL!! Its all about the bling bling baby girl! The funny thing is that I was just in a craft store looking on the stick on em stuff :) Good thing gold is my color too LOL!!

David, david, david, when you said touch of class the only thing that came to mind to me was perhaps a cover for your CI that looks like bural wood! It loooks high class and expensive in a car so why not on your ear :)

David, how about iridescent finish with hot rod flames flaring just behind the ear? ;D

Somebody on DR mentioned possibly getting a Naida hearing aid with zebra stripes. Would look more like wearing animal skin than bling.

Egad, that's a fortune in bling! I'd rather spend the money on a second or vacation home.
