But there have been a few problems lately that have interfered with my usual plans for weekly updates. Well, two problems actually. Two very large problems.
1) People haven't really been acting very stupid around me over the past weeks. I know that may seem hard to believe considering what you've read about my clientele. Yes, there have been the usual drunk drivers, stabbings, falling off bar stools, etc. But there are only but so many ways I can make the same scenario seem different and interesting enough to warrant another post.
1) I've been on vacation. No, I won't say exactly where I was (and who wants a mental image of me half naked on a beach anyway), but what I will say is that I learned that my middle school teacher was right: it IS hot near the equator.
If you're paying close attention, you'll notice both problems labeled #1. That's because I can't decide which is the more important reason for no recent update. Don't misunderstand, I can always sit on a beach and write blog stories, but only if I have good enough material, and only if I really feel like it, which I didn't.
The fruity drink with the umbrella sticking out the top may have had something to do with my newly acquired apathy. Hm.
Regardless, not to worry, though. I'm back in town and back in business. And doubtless my subjects will give me plenty of blog fodder in 3...2...1...
Don't worry, Doc. I'm sure many of us understand that stupidity is kinda part of human nature. Probably won't take long before someone does something stupid and you'll have a good story to tell afterward.ReplyDelete
Glad you got some R&R. My problem while on vacation is deciding which slushy drink with the umbrella I should have.ReplyDelete
I recall somebody famous once said, "only two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity."ReplyDelete

I've been worried sick. You should tell us if you're going to be away 😉ReplyDelete
Incidentally, I've found that umbrella drinks do seem to cause alternative counting practices as a side effect.ReplyDelete
Welcome back Doc, I hope and the rest of the Bastards had a great vacation.ReplyDelete
The fruity drinks are innocuous, it is the little umbrellas you gotta watch, they pack a punch (especially if you forget to take it out and get one in your eye)
It's like my mom always told me about brandy old fashions (which I love), It's not the booze that gets you drunk, it's those orange slices.Delete

You still haven't learned your lesson about taunting the call gods, have you?
now that you mention it, that kind of qualifies as doing something stupid.Delete
I covered for you a a week before last friday. every two hours give or take about five minutes. All night.Delete
Glad you and the family have been enjoying yourselves. Careful with those fruity drinks. You don't want to tarnish your Dad brand too much in front of the kids. Yet.ReplyDelete
I don't overdo it in front of my kids. We put them to bed first, then have wine in our room.Delete
So that's where you were when I broke my ankle a week ago Saturday. No wonder I did not run into you at the ED. Here I just thought you were being a slacker.Lucky you, you missed the surgery party too.ReplyDelete
Did you forget to tweet this?ReplyDelete
Nah, I just didn't think it was worth tweeting.Delete
IDK, I follow you partially to stay up to date on the blog. If something's worth posting (and emailing subscribers) about, IMHO it's worth tweeting. Your call though, obviously.Delete
I hasn't thought about that. I'll keep it in mind. Thanks.Delete
