As you’ve probably surmised from my startling lack of posting over the last week and a half, I am quite unwell. It happens. On the best days, the drug cocktail I am on seems to be made from Ex-Lax and steel wool.
But on the worst days, the immunosuppressant makes me so susceptible to illness, I long for the Ex-Lax and steel wool days.
Too much information? Sorry. I just want someone to share my pain.
I’ve learned that it’s possible to get so virulently ill that you begin to suspect your body has turned completely inside out.
It’s bad enough the drug cocktail turns my hair and nails into brittle glass – as is evident from the apparent Marine recruit hairstyle I’m sporting. Hey, it’s either buzz the hair off entirely or walk around with huge bald spots on my head like I’m suffering from alopecia. I choose the buzz cut. At least it’s consistent.
Plus showering’s a snap!
But picking up every bug that happens by can be all manner of exhausting.
And the last ten days have been completely exhausting.
Let’s just say chronic illness is bad, but sometimes the treatment, as they say, is worse than the disease.
On the plus side, my doctors will be thrilled since I’m shedding weight like a kid from a UNICEF commercial. Bound to happen when your idea of haute cuisine is Ensure shakes and cantaloupe.
This is my long, drawn-out explanation for my limited posting.
Any old how.
I was tootling around Twitter when once again I came across that ridiculous photo of Cory Booker posing with the Anti-Israel sign.
You remember the one.
Cory claimed that he was handed the sign to pose for the picture and had no idea what the sign says.
Which sounds like a flimsy excuse.
But we’re talking Cory Booker. He’s not the brightest star in the Democrat firmament.
Chances are it’s true.
It makes me think of this scene from Veronica Mars.
And it got me thinking. If Cory Booker is so stupid that he’ll pose with a sign without knowing what it says, could you imagine the fun folks on the Right could have with him?
Now, if you’ll excuse me. I have to go lie down for a while.
