Really need any extra prayers you have
Long story short, my spouse will be at the beach for most of the week. Yes. The beach. In Delta-variant Covid. Next to the city in Virginia with the highest Covid infection rates right now.
I can't ask him not to go, b/c I did that and got told no. Why can't he just take his vacay.... somewhere else? Nope, has to be the beach. And he said, "Waht could go wrrong?"
I don't know if I'll breathe easy until he's home, tested clear of Covid, and yes, he is vaxed, etc., but.... My optimism ran out sometime over the summer.
OK, on to more fun.
(Give me a minute, I'm trying to find some...)
Famous Last Words:
A French grammarian said "I am about to ---- or I am going to --- die. Either expression is correct."
"OH WOW!" ---- Steve Jobs, Apple co-founder
"Either that wallpaper goes, or I do." ----- playwright/author Oscar Wilde
"Last words are for fools who have not yet said enough." =----- Karl Marx. A fool, apparently ;-P
"I never should have switched from scotch to martinis." ---- actor Humphrey Bogart, who died of cancer, not liver failure, IIRC... Altho' wife Lauren Bacall said his true last words were "Goodbye, Kid, hurry back," before she left his bedside on a quick errand.
"hhhhh" ----- my dad (He wasn't terribly eloquent)
"My Florida water" ---- actress Lucille Ball's last words, when asked what she wanted. For those who don't know, and I didn't, Florida water is scented water, similar to eau de cologne, but more orange-citrusy
And Irish nationalist Erskine Childers wins for telling his own firing squad (that's how he died): "Take a step forward, lads, it will be easier that way." Despite being very English, Childers was a passionate advocate for Irish freedom, and died for it at the hands of the irish Free State. Basically, one big irony.
Off to nervous breakdown. Wish me luck!
Oh, y'all... Yinz... however you want me to say "you" collectively... (Ustedes? Ihr? Wy?)We might get a new fridge by Christmas. (Please support the needed infrastructure at our ports. If the recent backups at LA don't convince, consider that this is $$$ at stake, not politics, okay? Thank you. ) I was laughed at when I asked for a repair. "You fridge is over 10 years old!"... Apparently, 10...
