(This message is for the deep thinkers out there!)
I have been absent from the blogosphere for the past few days due to a health scare (not me - that of my wonderful better half). Sleep was not an option for me however so I was not coherent enough to prepare a newsletter; even though I did update the news page. I had a tough couple of days so instead of preparing my usual newsletter I would share my silly side with you all. I am human you know!
The issue at hand was a heart attack, or what was diagnosed as a heart attack (turned out to be more of a heart event than a damaging attack - thankfully.) But I wanted to share this with youâ€¦because in a way it reflects on what is taking place in this nation. As is usually the case when serious issues are at hand I am the one to take charge. When I am in a position where I do not have to take total charge, like when qualified doctors are helping someone who is having a “heart event’, I assume the role of mood controller. I keep things calm and I usually try to keep people laughing when appropriate.
So when it became apparent that our situation was not life threatening and was much less serious than first thought I morphed back into my silly self and I cracked a joke about the entire situation. BUT - this joke was made possible only by the current geo-political environment that the readers of this newsletter are so used to; so I thought you may enjoy the little joke, I mean silly comment - so here it goes: when I was looking at the heart monitor where the heart beat and rhythm are monitored along with blood oxygen and respiration I thought out loud that if the heart monitor machine was manufactured by Diebold, the company that makes our insecure election stealing voting machines, we may actually be witnessing someone else’s heart attack! Now that’s funny!
OK - more silliness - as I am getting ready to prepare today’s newsletter our heart patient looked at me and asked me if I had a topic for the commentary. I replied by saying that there is so much going on that I always have material for a commentary. Most of my readers know how I feel about Dick Cheney so you will understand the rest of my response. I told her that I could simply write “Cheney is a Dick” and that would be a publishable newsletter. And that’s when my own words came back to bite me - her reply to me was. “think about it!” Think about it!
