3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
After last week's "failure to launch", I was determined there would not be a recurrence, so this week I dropped a blue tablet an hour before supper and another after. This proved a total success. When I got together with Missus in the early evening, all bells got rung, then we both passed out for an hour! Even better, when we came round, Son informed us that he has an audition with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in November. Everybody went to bed very happy!
The magic blue tablet is supposed to be active for four hours. After last night's double-dose, it's still in my bloodstream this morning! You can tell because there's a "glow" both in your head and "down there" due to expanded blood vessels. Not that Missus has time or energy in the morning as she is getting ready for work, but it makes my ego feel complete! In a young man, that throb downstairs is continual, but in your middle-age it vanishes, so you can feel the difference when it is chemically revived. I consequently sit here feeling all manly and complete!

Keith Farnan on the Comedy Roadshow
Because McDonald's initially did not want its customers to stay and
socialize, they prohibited newspaper boxes, candy machines,
telephones, pinball machines, jukeboxes, and other types of
entertainment. They also installed uncomfortable chairs to deter
customers from lingering.

Our ability to respect others is the true mark of our humanity. Respect for other people is the essence of human rights.
