Wisdom passed down through the ages plus our own empirical experience combine to teach us many things, including:
- Don’t run with scissors
- Stop, drop, and roll
- Don’t pet the dog with sticky hands
- Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker
- Righty tighty lefty loosey - unless you’re on the other side of the bolt or it’s a propane tank valve
- Don’t get vertigo
- If you do get vertigo, don’t get the kind that stays with you for days
- If you do get vertigo, and you do get the kind that stays with you for days, don’t also get a tooth pulled during that same time period
- If you do get vertigo, and you do get the kind that stays with you for days, and you also get a tooth pulled during that same time period, plan on being dizzy and uncomfortable and having difficulty eating which then of course in addition to feeling nauseous and unsteady makes you weak and cranky too
I hope that’s clear.
I discovered a new radio show last night with great Americana roots music, it’s called American Routes and it’s out of New Orleans. It features “blues and jazz, gospel and soul, rockabilly and country, Cajun and swamp pop, Tejano, Latin… and beyond” and I like *all* of those styles of music. Thanks to my friend Rich who texted me the link while the show was on last night. Highly recommended.
This podcast is worth a listen too, about Lance Armstrong and his doping and PED scandal, it’s called “American Scandal” and it involves a lot of cycling community drama between Armstrong, Greg LeMond, and Floyd Landis. I listen on Spotify but it’s available on various platforms. Also highly recommended.
