Blogger Down for Maintenance…

Ok.  Posing a question here.

How do you know that you are old?

Well? (No, that pic has nothing to do with this post)

Ok, I’ll tell you how.

You know you are getting old when you arch your back and stretch with your arms up over your head and twist just so and POP happens in your lowest left rib.

It’s a wet-paper-bag tearing kind of pop-like sensation.  It is galvanizing and enough to make you leap off the couch in a jittery-cold sweat.

On Saturday for hours it was a sit-on-the-couch and wait game until Cruel Wife came home, sending the children out on hunter-gatherer missions.  GirlHead can reach stuff up on the counters and shelves as well as dig out everything from the 2/3 mark and lower in the fridge.  MonsterBoy can get shoes, pillows, blankets, and hit replay on Cars, which we watched twice.

It’s the sneezing and coughing that is killing me.  And throat-clearing.  And hiccups.  And deep breathing.

Grown to hate narcotics of any kind over the last two years and that has extended to ibu and tylenol (guilt by association) so we’re just gonna ride this out rodeo style.

UPDATE:  Doc says no office visit necessary (yay!) and that time, heat, and taking it easy is all that is necessary.  This is good, except for the time aspect.  Time is stretched by discomfort, you know.  Good news anyway, because pain when you breathe is kind of unnerving.  Better safe than sorry.

I can honestly say:  “This will never happen to me.”

Poisonous fish testicles send diners to the hospital.

Well, actually, you might convince me to try Fugu, but not fish testicles.  On a price per pound basis they have to cost more than saffron.

Talk about making career choices…

Judge Uses Vulgar and Racial Epithets While Charged with DUI

Her end of the conversation, in part, is: “I don’t need a ride home. … I’m a criminal. … What? What? … Well, they got the head n—– in charge and he … Which one, the head n—– in charge? … Washington. OK. That’s H-N-I-G….”

Then she hands the phone to Washington, who talks to her husband about getting the car off the highway. Washington asks, “Do you guys have Triple-A?”

Hearing that, Cofield interjects: “Oh, no. We don’t. We’re ghetto Negroes. We don’t have Triple-A.”

Earlier, when asked if she was injured, Cofield replied: “Yeah, I am. I’m humiliated by your f—–g attitude.”

I’m no fan of police brutality, but I think I’d make an exception here…

Washington asked if she was willing to take an intoxication test. She replied: “Mr. Negro Washington. I need to go to the bathroom, and then I will take the test.”

“It’s Sgt. Washington,” he replied, adding, “Don’t disrespect me, and I won’t disrespect you.”

At another moment, after she had given a urine sample, Cofield asked Washington: “Do you have a reading on my urine test, Negro trooper?”

I need to say that you see these thoughts pop up just enough that you wonder how prevalent it is in the black community.  It isn’t helped much by Michelle Obama, Rev. Wright, Je$$e Ja¢k$on, Sharpton, and other prominent “leaders”.

When asked to sign a form that she understood her rights, Cofield said, “I’m not signing anything, because when it comes down to the bottom line, who’s smarter — me or you? We’ll figure it out, won’t we?”

Asked if she took any drugs, Cofield responded: “Oh, yeah, I’m a crack addict. Do I look like that to you?”

Then she directed her attention to the first state trooper on the scene of her accident and asked him, “Can you tell me why you came first, and then you had to bring him [Washington]? Is it because you had to make this valid by bringing a Negro?”

Think about that:  “Can you tell me why you came first, and then you had to bring him [Washington]? Is it because you had to make this valid by bringing a Negro?”  That tells you what she thinks of whites in general and any “brothers” that work with them. I surely don’t understand this way of thinking.

This is rich:

Cofield was originally appointed in 1991 as the state’s first black female judge after Gov. Lowell P. Weicker Jr. nominated her and legislators confirmed her. She was last renominated by Gov. M. Jodi Rell and approved by lawmakers in 2007. Her current term expires on June 6, 2015.

My guess is that there are provisions in place such that her term will expire a whole lot sooner than that.   According to her it’s probably the “Uppity N______ Judge Retirement Clause”.

Note:  I cannot stand the use of the word, myself.  I use it to mock her attitude.

Wouldn’t be the first time an officer succumbed to drugs, but not like this.

RIP, Max.
