Fin, loved the song you posted!!!

Hello Driver! Hope you are doing ok.

Gordi, I ended up missing most of the stories in the last contest. I hope I can keep up with this contest. Thank you as always for leaving us a link.

I am worried about JustMike and Jacy. My thoughts and heart are with them and for all Sheddite's and lurkers who are not participating in here right now and who may be in need of extra love.

More fantasy. This time from Queen:

My Dad introduced me to Queen. He was drunk and in his underpants and singing at the top of his drunken lungs along with his drunk girlfriend at the time. He woke me up with all the noise so i had to come downstairs to see where all the noise was coming from. It wasn't this song, (probably Bohemian Rhapsody) but close to that period in their recording history. Brian May is the most gentlest tea-drinking person you could ever hope to meet, until you give him a guitar or let him build one himself.

That so reminds me of Cheap Trick:


Whatever happened to all this season's
Losers of the year?
Every time I got to thinking
When'd they disappear?
But when I woke up, Mom and Dad
Are rolling on the couch
Rolling numbers, rock and rollin'
Got my KISS records out

Mommy's all right
Daddy's all right
They just seem a little weird
Surrender
Surrender
But don't give yourself away
Hey, heeeeeey

Hey TRex, I wrote a very long reply to this, because I like your writing style. BUT it is floating around some where in the Jet stream.
or where ever lost posts go.
So the abbreviated version. Why Korean?

It was a really nice and funny reply.
They stole my words.

Before I reply in general I have to share this.
It made me happy in an odd backwards way, and happy is good to share, right?
Disclaimer. I will use references such as white and black. Please take no offense.
I am white with a middle-eastern back ground, but except White, because it is easier. Any who.

Scenario.
At work, behind the counter.
Black gentleman walks up.
"How may I help you Sir"
"I would like....."
White dude pulls up to the black mans cart and says in a loud aggressive voice " Get your F'n cart out of my way" His body language is hostile. The black guy turns.
"Yes your cart you F'n N....." " You are in my way"
In a split second I knew in the darkest corners of my soul I was going to loose my job in the black mans defense, I could feel absolute rage soar up ready to strike. And oddly, sadness, a deep sorrow.
At that moment the two guys gave each other a high five.
They knew each other and were just messing around.
My adrenalin was so high tears started rolling.
The black guy saw my distress and told the white guy, he made the "Lady" cry. They both apologized.
I told them I was ready in a split second to jeopardize my job.
The black gentle came back and thanked me, he asked what my name was.
When I left work five minutes later the white guy was by his car. He smiled and apologized again.

I thanked him, because he tricked me to acknowledge my true colors. He showed me that I walk my talk.
I was so grateful that I thanked him profusely.
Equality, respect are "things" I will say, but I am rarely provoked in such a manner.
This sounds silly perhaps, but to me it shows I am still a human being, it humbles me. There is something inside of me that is greater than the pitiful cynical "thing" I don't want to be.

Jumping up and down I have a heart, a real heart and soul. I had begun to doubt it.

Hello dear, it sounds so dire to me.

You are dying, but they seem to prolong the life saving process because of your insurance?

I used to live in a civilized country where such an approach would have been blasted all over the news. Actually it wouldn't even be news. We took care of people.

Hugs to you, that is all I have. Please be kind to your self. Grab every bit of sunshine you can. Literally and figuratively.

Driver, I love Queen! Met Brian May many, many years ago. He was such a perfect gentleman.

Intrepid, Loved that song by Cheap Trick you mentioned as well.

If that white guy would have been serious, I would have put him in his place, not physically, but with words. You are a sweet sensitive and honorable woman Wis. Of course you have a heart and soul silly, you always have.

Found this on the counter. Does it belong to anyone?

Nice to find you here today WIS. Yes, it all has to do with my insurance having to approve everything and in some cases, my MD has to okay the visits to the specialists as well. This is too hard for me to figure out at times as all I want to do is sleep, sleep, sleep.

My sister is helping out now that she is only babysitting off and on. This gives me someone to keep score as to what is going on and to explain to my dad the reality of my condition, not whatever he imagines it is.

Night,
That was my bottle of Boos. lol
