(Please don't read anything political in this at all)

 

Last night I was listening to the State of the Union address. (I am a radio guy and, besides, I was fixing the microwave) At one pojnt I went to the basement where my son was watching the response on tv (school assignment) and just as I looked at it, Rubio reaches off camera and gets a bottle of water, drinks, and resumes reading the speech from the teleprompter. I immediately yelled to my son: "Hey, he's one of us!" I think he got it.

 

You see, if I talk for very long at all I have to have my water - glass or bottle - and take a small sip to go on. Then I talk for a few minutes and go on again. I wil post some clips from a talk show and from a recent speech to show you.

 

All this time, politicians have been trying to show that they are just like us... and this one finally succeeded!

You're wishing this on someone?  I can't think of anyone on the planet I hate enough to wish this disease on them.

just that he's a "sipping talker"....his mouth gets dry when he talks.  I'd think that more politicians' mouths would dry up when they speak....even before treatment, my mouth would get dry when I was being less than truthful Sealed.

I seriously doubt that Doug was "wishing this" on anybody.

Thank you, George! That was the one reaction that I least thought I would get. I really was meaning that finally somebody was just like me or us.

Believe me, even had I enemies, I would not wish my suffering on them. Fortunately, my sweet and loving nature precludes making enemies.

DrMary says hello to you all, Doug

I'm really sorry I "vented" on you earlier.  The only lame excuse I can give is I had just gotten back from the day at the hospital (they had to give me fluids) and being 12 days out from the end of treatement I just feel so rotten and I hate this disease so much I spoke without thinking.

Again, truly sorry.

Your within the 12-day limit, that means you have to wash the first 3 H&N members cars that show up at your house, sorry.

I'm sure we've all had days like that where we needed to vent.  I know I have.  Do mini vans count as cars, Matt?

But seriously Doug, "sweet and loving nature" and "goalie" just doesn't seem right used together! LOL
