A few thoughts are about all I can rally before I get a severe headache. I’ve never been a particularly political person. I’ve voted Republican, I’ve voted Democrat, and I’ve voted third-party. I’ve made a conscious effort to avoid overt politics here, other than to make a joke or two that I couldn’t resist.
I caught a cold. For years I have tried to avoid catching cold by “air kissing” friends and staying away from sniffling people.
There is a reason for my being so diligent. Everybody has something and my “Achilles’ heel” is bronchiectasis (look it up in an old fashioned dictionary…not on Google), which is something I’ve had all my life.
The dog sniffed me twice, circled my body, and then squatted and peed on my boot.
“Oh my, gosh! Bad, Bitsy, bad!” said Bitsy’s owner, dragging the tiny designer dog away from my dripping rubber boots. She turned to me somewhat aghast. “I’m so sorry—Bitsy has never done that before. At least you’re wearing raining rain boots. Lol!”
