I think you can wing it, and still do what BS said.  Don't worry, not one person in a thousand is tracking your every word.

Honestly, do people even wear ray-bans anymore?

I just received the campus emergency alert text telling me to stay away from the crime scene I drove through Tuesday night. Nice to know that they come through in such a timely fashion. I feel safer now.

I do! They make the only sunglasses that work with my prescription and actually provide good wraparound coverage.

The urge to dance around in my underwear and join the Scientologists is strong, but I've resisted, so far.

That is so weird.  And disconcerting.

I have two pair of ray-ban bifocals (one regular pair, and one sunglasses). They are the only brand that works well for me so far since I started losing my eyesight. Actually, that's a lie. One other brand worked for me but it's not available here in the back of beyond.

On the advice of my attorney, I refuse to comment on absolutely anything with regard to underwear dancing or underwear or dancing, with or without the ray-bans. 

There's no danger of Scientologism here in small town flyover land, so I'm safe there. We have only about five different religions that even have a presence at all here (Christian, Hindu, Islam, Buddhist, and I'm sure there's a fifth one...). We aren't so creative in flyover land, you know.

Damn oncoming sinus infection. And damn neighbor in nearby hotel room who smoked almost incessantly--to the point that we had to wake up at 3:00 a.m. the morning after the election and open the windows for an hour and a half in below-freezing weather in order to be able to breathe.

More later, after I take some more medicine.

Me too.

I napped and rested all day, and I still feel like hell.

On the bright side, the cat is doing her damnedest to get me better.

Even more importantly, are they the best fashion choice for skydiving in your underwear?

I was not ready for the nausea. Not. Ready.

Of course, I am not the person having the nausea.

I wish I could fix this for him.
