The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

Sorry about the lack of posts, folks, but I just had hip replacement surgery done and I haven't been at a computer until now. In current news, my backside looks like someone with a mean streak tried to slice through a boiled ham with an ice cream scoop; the result is gruesome looking, when it is not busy being disgusting. The rump is now all the colors of the rainbow, with that mimeograph purple we all remember from school predominating. I will forswear the politically incorrect observation about having a rainbow on my rump; I would prefer not to hear hysterical charges of homophobia thrown my way while I am in my current condition. In any case, I will have something up for your amusement as soon as I can. Really. I mean that.

    Dearest Akaky, hope you'll be feeling better soon.
    At least laboring for so many years in that vale of tears called public library has its pluses: at least you don't have medical bill 3 pages long and half your saving account wide...

    Get well and write, please!

    Indeed, I hope you feel better soon. Just keep your clothes on and no one but your intimates will know anything different.

    Hip replacement? I swear you are choosing them from some especially rich collection of maladies. Exclusive access, so to say.

    Get over it quick, please!

    Hey, it has been 3 weeks.
    Are you OK?

    Alive and vaguely well now that I no longer have to wear those stylish compression socks and my left leg are no longer unstylish shades of green, yellow, red, and purple. And yes, there is something on the griddle, so I will be back very shortly, God willing and the river don't rise.
