    Default They shoot horses don't they?????

    I got a message a bit ago reminding me that a couple months back I volunteered to be a driver/chaperone for the Church youth group outing. We start off by going to Mass at 6....then out for pizza.......the up to northside to play laser tag until midnight. THey wanted to remind me that it is tomorrow evening. Thank goodness nothing else is going on tomorrow evening.

    If you get to thinkiní youíre a person of some influence, try orderiní somebody elseís dog around..

    Are you feeling well? You look like you are coming down with something. I know it's going around. You'll want to rest and also not risk spreading it. I hope you feel better soon (Sunday perhaps?)

    Just by the tone of your post, I can tell you are coming down with something that is highly debilitating and very contagious.

    My advice to you is: Save your strength, drink plenty of fluids, and ditch the chaperone gig. It's a church youth group; can't they be trusted to be cool without a chaperone?

    It's not like someone will be giving them whiskey and car keys......

    How many more youth outings will there be?

    Now, how many more Game 7's will there be?

    (I hope you can see through my sarcasm; I was laying it on pretty thick...)

    Maybe that is less obvious than just suddenly getting sick tomorrow?

    Good point....I know some people can only take so many 'sudden illnesses'.....great idea to start setting it up today.....geezer might even go so far as barfing all over his desk right before going home today.....what an impression that would make!!!

    See now those are the type of things I just don't and won't do from late April through early June, just in case the Pacers are playing.

    But if I had already committed, I would get out of it by any means necessary. Depending on how well they know you wil decide how creative you have to be in coming up with an excuse.

    Hey Geezer, just curious about something.

    I've noticed lately that you haven't been posting as much as you used to do. I've missed your postings.

    Yacking up all over your keyboard isn't good for it.

    Or so I've heard ...

    I agree with you DK, but I posted a rant in another thread today that some old geezer (no offense to our geriatric or octogenarian members!) spilled my just opened Mountain Dew all over my desk, my brand new $40 Dell multimedia keyboard and all over ME too and he didn't even acknowledge that it happened....He just kept rambling....

    That may be why I'm a little insensitive to keyboards right now....Mine is now drying out after I soaked it in water to flush all the Dew out and then used a whole can of compressed air to blow what I could out.....

    If IndyGeezer just has a run of the mill keyboard, they practically GIVE those away!!!

    Where on the north side are you playing laser tag? There's about a 50-50 chance I'll be seeing you tonight.
