Dragon Laffs #2008


The days are getting shorter and shorter.  I don’t really understand it.  The hours go by sooo slooow and the days go by so quick.  I did finally get my surgery date and I did find out why it’s taken so long.  The second part first.  It’s taken so long because the whole surgery office had COVID, one or two at a time.  I’ve seen this a lot on base.  Where one person brings it into an office, and then a few others get it before anyone knows they have it and before you know it, that office is down for several weeks.  Nobody was seriously hurt, but they did have some lingering effects, from what I understand, and got behind in their surgeries and, well, to the first part of my statement, my surgery is now rescheduled for June 13th.  I don’t have to do the pre-surgery screening appointment again, but I will have to do the lab work and it’s up in the air if I’ll have to do a pre-surgery COVID test.  So…at least that’s going in the right direction. 

And then you’ve got Biden, who publicly says that Putin needs to be put down, like that’s gonna fly in the world stage.  Did you guys see how the 82nd Airborne didn’t even fucking stand up for him in Poland?  Geez! 

And then Will Smith hits Chris Rock … who gives a fuck?   And yet, it seems to be important enough to be on every single news cast.  Fucking morons. 

You know what?  I need some laughter.  So, what do you say, we get to that part?

Pets are wonderful things.  They are fun to take care of, to play with, and can even be useful for different things.  And she even looks really cute in that blue dress.

Okay, so I am NOT a Kid Rock fan. 

Not at all. 

But … I do like this one…

A LOT!!!

Thanks to John S. for sending it my way.

Stephanie texted this to me and I have to say that truer words have NEVER been spoken, EVER:

YOU DON’T JUST LOSE SOMEONE ONCE, 

You lose them over and over, sometimes in the same day.  When the loss, momentarily forgotten, creeps up, and attacks you from behind.  Fresh waves of grief, as the realization hits home, they are gone.
Again.
You don’t just lose someone once, you lose them every time you open your eyes to a new dawn, and as you awaken,  so does your memory, so does the jolting bolt of lightning that rips into your heart, they are gone.
Again.
Losing someone is a journey, not a one-off.  There is no end to the loss, there is only a learned skill on how to stay afloat, when it washes over.  
Be kind to those who are sailing this stormy sea, they have a journey ahead of them, and a daily shock to the system each time they realize, they are gone.
Again.
You don’t just lose someone once, you lose them every day, for a lifetime.

I’ll share with you my response to her… 

Truer words have NEVER been spoken.
Every

Single
Solitary
Day
Over
And
Over
And
Over
Again

That was my response, but I will continue here, today is Tuesday, I actually had a semi-decent day at work today.  I only worked half a day today because I had physical therapy this afternoon for my back, something my doctor wants me to try while I wait for my hip surgery to come ’round.  Anyway, I was driving home, in a decent enough mood, thinking about going home and spending time with …

…when it smacked me right in the fucking face.  I was going home to NOT spending time with Mary because Mary wasn’t at home any more.  It’s like I had forgotten for a few minutes and fell back into old habits and when I remembered it was like the shock of her dying all over again.  I actually screamed “NO!” in the car driving down the highway, started crying and damn near wrecked the car at almost 70 mph. 

And it’s not the first time that something like that has happened to me. 

So, yeah … like I said … over and over and over and …

So, let’s get back to the laughter…  

More pet pictures…you figure out which is which.

Son:  Daddy, I keep hearing noises from my closet.  I think a monster’s in there.  

Me:  Yeah, why do you think mom and I chose the other room?

Hello darkness my old friend.

Darkness:  [2 days later] Sorry, just saw this.

Only Italians understand that “How you doin’?” is just a greeting, not a question.  Nobody really gives a shit how you’re doing.

Yup, that last one is an Impish Dragon original

That does NOT look like a monkey

One of the really cool things about my job is that I get to see cool things sometimes.  And today, I got to take an inside tour of a new plant that is opening up right outside the base.  Arizona Isotopes is opening a cyclotron here right next to our base where they will be making radioactive isotopes mostly for medical, but also for other industries.  And me and a few other people from the base got to take an inside, up close and personal tour of the place.  And he even let me take a picture!!!  You guys want to see what a machine that splits an atom looks like?  This is a cyclotron:

Pretty cool, right?  And when the VP found out that I was an RSO (Radiation Safety Officer) he pretty much offered me a job right on the spot.  They are pretty hard to come by.  I’m not sure if he was kidding or not, but he did mention it like three times during the tour.  LOL.  Anyway, pretty cool gig.

Due to the ridiculous gas prices, I will no longer be stopping at stop signs or red lights.  I can’t afford to idle.  Thank you for your understanding and stay safe.

Did anyone even bother to LOOK at any of those logos before they used them?

My friend DAVID had his ID stolen.  Now he’s just DAV.

What does it mean if the Holy Water sizzles when it hits your skin? 

Asking for a friend.

If a woman says her nipples are pierced the correct response is:

“I don’t believe you.”

That one blows my mind.  

WTF!?!?

I’ve started to do Cross-Fit…

I cross my fingers, and hope that my pants fit.

And that brings us to the end of another issue.  I hope you guys enjoyed this one.  I know I did.  I’m working this weekend so not sure what’s coming from here.  Probably have an episode for Saturday, but not for Monday, but we’ll see.  Love and happiness to you all.

    I’d go back and check with the guy who offered you the job. Get some info. Might be a better job for.you.
    Nothing ventured. Nothing gained.

  2. Leah D says:

    And you never once considered taking that job? What would Mary say?

    • impishdragon says:

      She would say, “You’re retiring in a little over 3 years, don’t you fucking DARE think about screwing that up by taking a new job that might be more fun and might pay better, but will keep you working for a lot more years!”
