I am so thankful that it is Friday Night. This has been one of the hardest weeks I’ve endured in a while. This is actually the end of two weeks of pure Hell really.
Recounting recent events…
Bought and crashed the Bradillac on New Year’s Eve. Then my Dog died and I couldn’t find her. I knew she was dead but I couldn’t find her. I had to let the flies find her for me. Once that got accomplished I had to take off work early to have enough daylight to perform burial detail. I broke out the pick axe and shovel at 4pm. I had been suffering from a pesky dry cough that day and was starting to run a fever. It was 87 degrees outside and humid. Sweat was oozing hard and I was extremely winded. I didn’t realize that I was getting sick and that was taking all my stamina.
So I start getting to proper depth and I ran into a former pet. Such is the hazard of having a backyard pet cemetery filled with unmarked graves. I had to fill in the hole and dig another one in an area that I was fairly sure was clear carcasses. I pulled Nikki out from under the house and got her in her final resting place with great speed. It was most unceremonious. I got back in the house and got a shower.
That was last Thursday. The rain came down hard that night and by Friday morning I was fully sick. I had to take the day off. The temperature dropped and all I could do was stay in bed. That went on through the weekend. I went back to work on Monday but was still very sick, just not contagious. I had to go home about an hour early and go to bed. I made it through the next day but on Wednesday the Boss ordered me home early, told me to go to bed as soon as I got home, no internet. I fed my remaining Dog and went to bed. I stayed there for 13 hours. It was a good move. My ears finally popped clear and I started feeling better just yesterday at bout 2pm. With most Colds it’s bad on day one, you break it on day two and start feeling better on day three. It took a whole week to break this one. I still don’t have my voice back full but at least I can speak now.
So anyway I was telling you all that in order to explain why I can’t do a proper movie write-up. Instead I see I’ve written plenty, bitching about Life. No, what I want to say is engage all countermeasures against this Cold. It is bad. Last Friday I thought I was going to die. Seriously. Not seriously enough to go to the emergency room. I would have been like Nikki. The Flies would have lead others to the body.
So anyway, speaking of Death and Flies and such, I found this movie for our viewing pleasure tonight…
