"Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated"

As is my custom, I go to the gym, shower and then worry and fret until it's time to go to the mall for coffee. Today I had to do the work of two hypochondriacs, as my wife had dinner plans with a friend.

I loaded up the UC2, checked the shine on my Harley boots, purloined beverage money from my wife and began the drive to the mall. I must admit, I'm sure glad Leonidas never met me, and that's about as low as a guy can go--when my cell phone rang...

It was my oral surgeon, my biopsy results were back and I am perfectly healthy. Then he told me the back story.

He quoted a chemical with a name so lengthy and complicated that even SnowTao would need three Asian professors and Thesaurus to untangle all the Latin and Greek adjuncts. I asked the surgeon what it was.

"Well, Chico, you big chicken," he drawled, "it's an additive used in toothpastes for whitening or are used in products to desensitize teeth. It appears you're allergic to this compound, and you had a reaction..."

I let that sink in and then responded, "You mean I had dry spot in my mouth because my wife changed brands?"

The rest of the exchange was equally dry, I asked about treatments, he told me it would heal on it's own. Then I had to do the hardest thing for me to do.

Oh, I apologized for my conduct and my demeanor. Everyone is afraid of something, but in effect, I got to walk off Thermopylae.

Lay on the insults, guys, I've earned them...

I spent over 3 hours this morning cutting firewood from a remote mountain road. My entire body is aching and the dog is seriously pooped out and all she did was watch.

Come spend a day working a chainsaw and carrying 50lbs log pieces and it will give you something entirely different to get concerned about. Like your back.

You ever worry about not having something to worry about?

Only Chico can come up with this shite. Lmao.

Talk about twisting and spelling. Tell him you know how to spell a real long word and you heard that he had a really rare lung disease.

Looks like a good bit of work. No thanks, took out some dead Ash trees (Big Ash Trees) from out back a couple months ago. Still feeling it. I don't recoup as fast as I used too.

It is a free gym membership, that pays off BIG in the winter. I hate being cold. I'm now cutting for winter 2018/2019, I am that far ahead, and this stuff is very green, knocked down during the past winter.

Oh, I have lots of calm moments, it's just that the last four or five months have all been back-to-back trips to the doctor. I'm a little punch drunk.

When it comes to phobias and weird human tics, I'm not even in the top ten. I'm reading a book about a guy who has emetophobia, the fear of vomiting. Evidently the stress of dealing with this gives the sufferer an irritable bowel, and dramatic bouts of diarrhea. The author once had such an attack while at someone's home.

...which was in the Kennedy compound, on the rugs, the towels, the drapes...

"Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated"

I agree with you on the pay off in the winter. I have plenty of dead Ash trees in my future to harvest for the wood stove. Ash Bores killed a bunch of them in my woods.
I cheat, I use my Loader on my New Holland to hall the wood to the house. Saves on the back quite a bit.

Didn't God or someone invent electricity so man wouldn't have to do that kind of work any more ?
