All of them could be attributed to aging and a lifetime of thinking I was immortal. While some things are unusual at this age, they are not out of the realm of possibility. If it's age related, so be it but if it is a medical condition, it is very treatable, a simple medication can treat most, if not all of my complaints. That may not be amusing but what amuses me is the fact that I keep putting off requesting a test because as long as I don't know, I have hope but if I go get tested and it comes back negative, I have to face the fact that I am on the down slope of life.
    Go get tested (but you know that).

    And even if you are on the downward slope, it is likely a very gradual slope. Plus, there are some good things to getting older.

    Sit back and laugh?

    Kick yourself in the butt for letting the dog eat something that costs roughly $720 an ounce? (For the good stuff.)

    NOT panic and take it to the vet?

    I give up. What do THEY suggest?

    Man Stoner: Mostly Maui Waui man, but it's got some Labrador in it.
    Pedro: What's Labrador?
    Man Stoner: It's dog [deleted].
    Pedro: What?
    Man Stoner: Yeah, my dog ate my stash, man.
    Pedro: Yeah?
    Man Stoner: I had it on the table and the little [obscene characterization] ate it, man. Then I had to follow him around with a little baggie for three days, man, before I got it back. Really blew the dog's mind, ya know?

    It occurred to me yesterday that what this world REALLY needs is marinara sauce in a squeeze bottle you keep in the fridge, for when the leftover pasta is just a tad dry.

    I was reading through the thread, and must have still had earlier bits of it on my mind, so I read marinara as "marijuana".

    I dunno Tor. Treb may have spelled it wrong and autocorrect did the rest.

    You know Treb hurls produce, for distance, from medieval weapons of mass destruction right? (Can you imagine 800 years from now, people hucking watermelons with home-made ICBM's?)

    These are not the acts of sober men.

    You may question my sanity Don, but I have a hard and fast rule against drinking and hurling. That's been ever since 2005, when my team went for a lunch of pizza and beer and returned to produce the second worst collapse in the history of the Burlington Pumpkin Pitch.
    After the pitch is a different story.

    And speaking of hurling, today's Google Doodle has a little game of hurling garden gnomes with a trebuchet!

    I was helping my older brother set up an 55 gal aquarium for fancy goldfish and he's been an unrepentant "Brit-o-phile" for decades. So I wasn't surprised at all when we took breaks that he inflicted some obscure British sit-com or another on me. This particular one being set and filmed in Scotland. A series called "Still Game".

    What surprised me was I liked it.

    What amazed me was I needed sub titles. As in *needed* them. ()

    All night long I was going "Wait! Play that back!" And then being surprised that the sub titles were correct after all.

    And then there were situations like the word "mair" which, from the context, means "more" but doesn't sound like how I'd pronounce either word phonically.

    But the most amazing discovery of all, learned after watching the Scottish speak for more than an hour, with sub titles, was the fact that all the swear words came across clear as a bell! (There's quite a bit of swearing in Scottish sit coms it seems.)

    You know what this implies don't you?

    Myself, and most of the people I know, actually swear with Scottish accents and don't realize it!

    The older I get, the weirder the world seems to get. I tell you true.

    Trivial trivial amusment.

    In the forum actions I hit "Mark All Forums Read" for the first time since signing on eleven years ago.

    The forum kinda went "tilt!" for a second before it recovered itself.

    I've been busy and haven't eaten in 36 hours.

    Let's see, it's 11pm local on the nose and I'm not going to be able to eat again until breakfast tomorrow morning.

    You're a butt.

    Yep, that about covers it.

    This morning, my blood sugar was through the roof. I went back to my pill box and checked to see if I actually took my pills last night. I did so that was really bad. Then I remembered my kids had their dance recital last night. We didn't get a chance to eat until about 11 pm.

    Eating regularly is a good thing.

    On the upside, a friend of mine nearly floored me at the recital. My wife sent me outside to help her into the building as she has MS. She has been using a wheelchair on and off for a while. Last night she walked up behind me and tapped me on the shoulder. She has some new medicine that really helps. That was awesome.

    This comic. Apparently I'm a plugger, although it's costing way more than $14,000.

    My wife got to channel her inner Marx Brother at the post office today.
    For reasons that need not detain us here, she was posting a sarong to a friend.
    The guy in the post office asked, "For security reasons, can you tell me what is in the package?"
    "A sarong."
    "A sarong?"
    "No, 'as a-right!"

    There's a cloth shopping bag on the table in front of me that, every once in a while, moves around a bit. There's been a cat in it for about three hours.

    Back in the day, when there was nothing on television, we used to pass the time by putting a small paper bag on the floor for our cat to find. He'd stick his head into it, then lift his head with the bag on it, and then back away very slowly with the bag on his head - for as long as we could bear to watch it. It was a viral YouTube video, except before YouTube and before video.

    Good thing she didn't post two sarongs, because two sarongs don't make a right.
