Not really a good one, since I still have all the aches and pains I started this week with.
Pills only seems to help the symptoms for a while.
The cause is obviously still not sorted.
And I don’t know what the cause is.
Guess I’ll just have to suck it up and live with it.
Can’t be drinking major painkillers every night – that’s also not a good idea.
I’m not used to continuous pain like this.
I hardly ever get sick, and never have inexplicable aches.
So this is kind of working on me.
Working on the psyche.
So, last night the youngest tells me that he needs me far more than I think.
Which did go a long way in making me realise that even though the kids are big and will, for all intents and purposes be better off financially when I’m gone, they need me on a different level – even if it does not always look like that.
Such is life.
Not always moonshine and roses. Basically never moonshine and roses!
Usually darkness and thorns, but hey – what will we do, eh?
At least the youngest is still enjoying the job he got for himself.
Can’t ask for more than that.
Maybe that I will find a job that I can enjoy!!
I still have 21 years left to work – might as well find something I can sink my teeth into, buckle down and plan for my retirement…
And, on that very positive note, today’s light reading…
A young Law student, having failed his Law exam, goes up to his crusty
old professor, who is renowned for his razor-sharp legal mind.
Student: “Sir, do you really understand everything about this subject?”
Professor: “Actually, I probably do. Otherwise I wouldn’t be a
professor, would I?”
Student: “OK. So I’d like to ask you a question. If you can give me
the correct answer, I will accept my marks as it is. If you can’t give
me the correct answer, however, you’ll have to give me an “A”.
Professor: “Hmmmm, alright. So what’s the question?”
Student: “What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and
neither logical nor legal?”
The professor wracks his famous brain, but just can’t crack the
answer. Finally he gives up and changes the student’s failing mark
into an “A” as agreed, and the student goes away, very pleased.
The professor continues to wrack his brain over the question all
afternoon, but still can’t get the answer. So finally he calls in a
group of his brightest students and tells them he has a really, really
tough question to answer: “What is legal but not logical, logical but
not legal, and neither logical nor legal?”
To the professor’s surprise (and embarrassment), all the students
immediately raise their hands.
“All right” says the professor and asks his favourite student to answer
“It’s quite easy, sir” says the student “You see, you are 75 years old
and married to a 30 year old woman, which is legal, but not logical.
Your wife has a 22 year old lover, which is logical, but not legal.
And your wife’s lover failed his exam but you’ve just given him an
“A”, which is neither legal, nor logical.”
Hope it’s a good one!!
