3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Missus "quality time" went well and all bells got rung, despite the absence of Tadalafil or peanuts (for the L-argenine) from my system. I think I have the hang of this now - it's all about giving myself enough time to "warm up" before Missus arrives in the bedroom - 30 - 60 minutes is required.
With a woman who "knew what she was doing" I might not need this prep, but I don't feel I'm "missing out" - I'm just relieved I can still perform! For what Missus lacks in sexual prowess, she more than makes up for in love and devotion - she worships me! I see Uncle Fester staring at me from the mirror, and she sees Sean Bean.
This is what makes her irreplaceable - no one else could possibly love me so absolutely and completely as she does, and I rather like it! We have become absolutely dependent on each other. I cannot imagine being loved this way again, and I am profoundly grateful to have had this experience - it's the best!

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
Monty Python - No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!
The old verse "Red sky at night - shepherd's delight, red sky at morning - shepherd's warning" has some basis in fact. A red sky indicates an anticyclone - a high pressure weather system that brings dry weather. They tend to travel due east in the northern hemisphere. A red sky in the evening is in the west, meaning that an anticyclone is coming. A red sky in the morning means that the anticyclone is moving away so unsettled weather is coming.
