>I say what I mean and I mean what I say.

Truth-table that and it all makes sense. Whatever I say, or write, I mean, exactly as it is said or written, nothing more, nothing less. Perhaps I expect too much from others to do the same and not to make interpretations, inferences or assumptions from what I’ve said as I try to with what they have said or written.But then I probably always expect far too much from everyone, myself being no exception. 

Sometimes I wish I could just remove myself from humanity and live in complete isolation. And take a vow of silence while I am at it.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Oh boy I so hear that! Quite often my thoughts exactly!

Not sure about the vow of silence though, Id really struggle with that after a few seconds or so.


Well if you were removed from humanity then there wouldn’t really be anyone to talk to besides yourself.


Also, when I had my tonsils removed I couldn’t talk for at least a month. I used a white board and marker, or a notebook, but even then no very much unless I was asked a question or needed something or had something important to ‘say’.


Jolan Tru, may your day be filled with peace.

True but I do that all the time anyway. Quite often its a better class of conversation.


Wow a month! I lost my voice for two days once and it drove me nuts. Everyone else loved it though.

"Yup." "Damn I LOVE this job."

Yeah, it was far too painful to speak, and when I was finally able to I sounded like I had been smoking for 40 years non-spot. Not very fun at all!

>Yes, a week. But you have to remember: I was sick when that happened. Had I not been sick, that would never have happened.

>The funny thing about that incident was that, even after the blasted flu had left me alone, I still had problems eating. It's like I forgot how to eat or something. *shakes head* As long as I don't get a flu like that again, I'm fine. Wouldn't recommend throwing up for an entire week, no rest, no food.

>

For me I simply lost 8 days with just a vage memory of being carried to the bathroom and another of someone sitting me up to spoon soup into me, allthough I dont know how successful they were, or who they were. But my friends who looked after me informed me I didnt move or speak except to request a drink and I told the doctor they had called in panic to f-off, which he did after diagnosing the flu. I also vaguely remember thinking if I was dying, and it sure felt like it, then I hoped it would be quick.

Few people truly know what the flu really is.


My mother was considering taking me to hospital, if only for the dehydration (I wasn't just throwing up the whole time), but I talked her out of it.


It's the same thing I did when I had the infection in grade 8. I talked my mother out of taking me to see a Doctor until it was too late. By that point, the had become so severe that I could no longer breathe on my own. That infection nearly killed me. *sigh* It also damaged my already problematic lungs even further. I haven't been able to run, or do anything that the "normal" kinds can do since. I have almost no memories of that infection. All I remember is the last breath where I suddenly choked on I don't even want to know what. After that... Let's say that I've developed a deep hatred of being attatched to those blasted monitors. It's a "stop staring at me!" sort of thing. Arg.


Goodbye. I am gone.

Ive only had my appendix out and a few stitches.


Wierd though, I bumped into my college classmate on my ward after my op, turns out she just had her appendix out too. We called the college together and, big suprise, they didnt believe a word we said!   They apologised later.

It’s a bow tie. I wear a bow tie now. Bow ties are cool.


 


 


hehehehehe.... when I was in DC, we saw this play in the Kennedy Centre, and there was one rather geeky looking guy who wore a bow tie. So i turn to my friend (who's also a DW fan) and she turns to me and we both say together "Bow ties are cool" It was SOOOOO funny!

On the school intercom:


"Don't worry about the smoke filling the hallways, it's just teachernamehere making popcorn."


Of course, every student just has to jump up and look out the door. Sure enough, there was enough smoke in the hallway that it appeared to be bathed in a kind of fog. Stunk pretty badly, too. I don't think I'll ever be able to get the scent of burnt popcorn out of my nose.

There was one kid in grade 9 (who, fortunately, is no longer in my class) that left one of those disgusting little pizzapop things in the microwave for over 30 minutes. I had been reading at the time, and I thought I smelled something that wasn't right. So, I automatically looked up and noticed smoke pouring out of the microwave. My face goes from this to this and I notified the two boys sitting directly in front of the microwave (who, since they were playing games also hadn't noticed) and they jumped away from it. In the end, the microwave itself caught on fire and we had to carry the table it was on outside before we set off the fire alarms. That kid was a walking fire hazard. The Junior High wing of the school stunk for 2 weeks.


Goodbye. I am gone.

I'll take your rain, if you wish. It's so dry around here that there's many more wildfires than usual. The breeze carries with it the faint smell of smoke.


Goodbye. I am gone.
