This dude lives in Oakland, CA, works on environmental noise studies for money, plays baseball for fun, and is compelled to write sometimes.
@j-i-a I knew it. Such an editing trixter, stringing me along. Nice work.
Fascinating. Did you purposefully build the suspense and mystery by delaying the disclosure of the correct diagnosis? Because it worked. I especially like, "When I first started walking normally I felt like I was flying around everywhere." Makes me feel lucky for my health instead of guilty for drinking too much and lazy for not working out enough.
Whether or not that's what was used for the red, now I want something with a shitload of Sriracha on it. TACOS!
@iceberg Uh, Duh. I like the "mama" suffix you added to your username. Just letting everyone know, a mother knows best, even when that mom is a mountain of frozen water.
@vunder The High Life department at Miller has kept it consistently snazzy through the years.
Save the glug. Love the glug. Hug the glug. Glug it up. Glug is the drug I'm thinking of.
@iceberg defensive mansplaination: I definitely italicized "females" before editing my comment and losing/forgetting the formatting...for what it's worth. But we've had this discussion before right? I think we even debated whether "ladies" was usually alright or not and reached a consensus that "women" is the best.
Also defending me aside, I agree with Bunburying ^there that context matters. So does tone.
@ThatWench Done. I changed mine to "The Dude Aflame" for similar reasons.
@ThatWench hmm how about a play on your username. WhatStench? Wait no, how about FakeBlock?
Sorry to cherry pick and appropriate the language you used BUT: All the females I've ever been drawn to cared primarily about pleasing themselves.
