I had enough of a cold to excuse myself from work the Monday after Thanksgiving. I felt it coming on that Sunday night and took some Nyquil. I still wasn't feeling great so I stayed home and slept until noon. I wasn't great by Tuesday, but went to work the rest of the week, and it actually passed pretty well by Friday. Sometimes, IF I can get enough rest, I can chase them off before they blow out or at least within a few days. That works better for me than any medicine.
had a "minor annoyance" happen at Wal-Mart today. There was a wal-lady handing out free mint oreo candy bars so naturally the kids and I stopped to partake in the free goodies. While we were standing there a young man that obviously has never kissed a woman let alone been naked with one walks in with a Ninja sword in his hand. I am watching what he is doing when the wal-lady looks at me and at the top of her voice says: "Hey arent you a cop that works under cover?" The guy hears her so he does his best He-Man impersonation and sheaths it behind his back and runs thru the store. Hmmm.....first I am an officially retired Police Officer. If I was under cover I am pretty sure she would be the last person that would know what I am. Now I know why the local wal-mart cant retain loss prevention for longer than a few weeks...Mrs. Subtle probably follows them thru the store yelling at them to tackle the guy trying to smuggle a $3000 tv out the grocery side exit...Just another example why my 9mm buddy goes everywhere with me
I have the one a nights just frequently enough to remind me what is ahead. It’s bad enough trying to get back asleep after one interruption when you know your alarm is going off in an hour or two, but doing the whole zombie piss dance twice a night is unacceptable. I’ll have to investigate diapers if that becomes my reality.
No doubt. They had been so good the past several years and now everything takes longer. I'm guessing the Amazon deal has had a negative effect on normal service, though Amazon delivers 90% of my packages these days.
