Gall Bladder -> Hospice...
It appeared to be appendicitis but turned out to be gall bladder sludge. Your liver produces three to five cups of bile per day. The gall bladder doles it out into your intestine to aid in the digestion of fatty foods, probably the stuff you shouldn't be eating anyway. Of course taking down a wooly mammoth and eating ten pounds of warm fat is all in a day's work and that's why we have a gall bladder. The sludge is irremovable so the gall bladder is the departing organ of choice.
Waiting around is a bore. I concluded that all the renovations included images that were those we might be surrounded with at the end of life. Sailboats, trees, peaceful streams, leaves falling gently to the forest floor. What a BOS. I'm not dying, I'm here for a CT, ultrasound, blood work, etc.
I'm going to write a letter to the health company CEO.
In the closet...
|all within a theme|
It would be convenience to say that I'd narrowed the variety of my executive wardrobe when I was running the process improvement program and focused on 'eliminating waste.' That was not how it happened. 'Matching sock' time is shortened when you wear the same socks every day (not the same pair but the same color/style). Blue slacks, black cap toe shoes, grey Gold Toe socks, some sort of blue shirt, plain or plaid, not striped...that was the program.
This costume wardrobe has been utilized three times in the past two and three quarter years, once for a wedding and twice for a funeral visitation. My conclusion is that in my former gig I was attired for the dead. Change is good. May it all remain in the closet is my wish du jour.
Regarding the short sleeve shirt...advice from my better half "just be comfortable. No one is going to look at you. No one cares what you wear." As a guy it's clear that you go invisible at 55 or so (this to the opposite gender [I can't speak to same gender orientation...I just don't know]).
Write & Wrong...
A year ago I bet my son $40 that Trump would take the Republican nomination and another $40 (non-contingent) that Trump would win the Presidential election. It appears that no money will exchange hands.
Approximately a year and half prior I committed to writing daily in this blog. The same son remarked "you'll fail." As a parent it's important to set goals for children. Five is always a good number. That's five goals. Achieving all five is great but achieving fewer is not a failure. There are many excuses for not sitting down and writing. Every book on improving your writing, creating a career as a writer, every motivational piece addresses all the excuses one thinks they have, the most common being to busy or lacking a topic.

'Write & Wrong" came to me as an idea for a blog post topic. It was going to identify issues with strategic planning, innovation and verbal and written articulation. It was a good title. If' I'd take off my headphones, quit the distraction of one of the great punk bands, quit tapping my foot to the second greatest bassist of all time I could bring some focus. Well, perhaps tomorrow.
