The doctor that produced this very understandable YouTube Video about how COVID-19 works in our bodies insisted that every viewer share the video. I learned a lot so I’m doing just that. https://youtu.be/4J0d59dd-qM
That expression can possibly be translated to mean: your pain will one day be a source of amusement to you. How could the speaker know this, unless my pain was already a source of amusement to the speaker whose wisdom revealed to him that my problem was no biggie. Yes, I overthink casually tossed off platitudes and I tend to err on the side of pessimism. I could be wrong when I think there’s thoughtlessness afoot. I want to make the point, mostly to myself, that the Bible is right–we will be called to account for every idle word we utter. Accountability might come sooner than we think in the form of hurt feelings. I will keep my words in mind bc that’s good advice, for me!
People are lonely and bored in isolation. A customer service rep from my alarm company talked to me in Hawaii from her home office outside of Philadelphia. She was exactly right when she said people in Hawaii don’t know how serious things are. In a pop of about one million , as of today we have just over 400 cases, 80% of them appeared to catch the virus travelling out of state. There have been 5 deaths. Our heightened emergency measures are precautions not reactions. I don’t see many people, true, but I don’t know anyone here personally effected. Without the news we would have no idea anything was amiss. The customer service rep spent twenty minutes telling me how dire things are. People dying barely a day after feeling ok. She told me repeatedly to ignore the local normalcy here bc the virus is just waiting, however a virus does, to put in its inevitable appearance here. I read New York is thinking of using parks as temporary cemeteries. That horror, here, would absolutely change the feeling that we are fortunate to have a geographic quarantine that has kept us safe. We will see. No matter what, I will write about it.

I am constitutionally incapable of remaining indifferent to negative reviews. What other people think matters to me and the fact that I care also matters to me bc the really together people don’t let bad feedback get to them. I want to be together and have you think so and mention it aloud thus sending the image I project back to me. My God, I want to be liked and publicly known for my attractiveness and wit, yet I write under the title of one of the most denigrated groups of all time. Am I constantly working against what I say I want, or what? Should I change my title by removing any reference to sex work, past, present, or future, and if I do, what makes me different?
Remember the classic movie When Harry Met Sally
Billy Crystal’s character explains that men and women can’t be friends bc a man is going to want to have sex with all of her attractive friends. He later amends his statement to include all of her unattractive friends in the group of women he’d like to enjoy. Men know what other guys say about us women when we are not present. To say their conversations are objectifying and sexually oriented is an amusing understatement that I will let stand. When it comes to having sex with someone and no one will ever know, well, there’s not a lot of women a guy would refuse under those circumstances. Guys know that men, themselves included, look at just about all women as sex objects, even if only for half a second. Just as they appraise their friend’s significant others, the friends are looking at his woman. It takes a lot to dissuade a man that a woman who his friend has sex with would not be good to sample. On the extreme downlow, you understand. Guys may not share their thoughts about each other’s partners but they know what’s unsaid. I’m going to make a controversial statement: there’s a startling lack of diversity when it comes to how men think of women, however briefly the thoughts last Yes, I’m totally assuming I know this based on my limited experience with certain men.
What’s a Guy To Do?
Men might wish to have sexual freedom but they don’t want their wives having the same freedom. “My wife’s married but I’m not,” is an expression that fits the predominant double standard. Men don’t want to share their wives. In an attempt to keep predators away, guys will badmouth their partners, especially attractive ones. I had a friend who told me he learned the hard way not to brag about his woman when his cellmate was released from jail a week before him and that guy was installed as his girlfriend’s new man by the time he tried to go home.
A Call to Action
Anyone who doubts me can use this quarantine time to explore new ideas with their mates. If you do, you’ll no doubt discover that he says bad things about you to other guys, family included, bc you are just that awesome.

🐈➡️⚕️➡️💉 Cat to Vet to Vaccine
Last weekend my cat was suffering from as not ear infection. My favorite vet was open and she assured me that the other vet was wrong when he said a cat should not receive vaccinations when he has an ear infection bc technically vaccinations are for healthy animals. Just now, April 04, 2020, I finally got around to looking at the receipt from Blue Cross Animal Hospital, where my cat received more services for $100 less than other veterinarians. Look below⬇️
I don’t know about you all, but during this ..era, I’m watching TV shows I never watched before. There’s this one show about, among other things, the official persona one must present to be acceptable to enough people to keep your job or get elected. They have to deal with events before they become life ruining scandals. I see what normal people consider outrageous and ruinous and I smile. If a reporter had a calendar of my last 20 years and choose any day at random and focussed in depth, on what I was doing, who I spent time with, what I considered important, etc., etc…suffice it to say, one day of my life, carefully examined, would render me ineligible for public office. This show has presented me with a new level of self centered focus that beats even this blog about my life and my interests that I author and I, somewhat indifferently, edit. Maybe I’m even normal..? Naah, I doubt it.
I managed a secret audio recording for those of you who love an addict and cannot understand why it is so difficult to talk to the person. It is likely that your addict is using a big addict tactic known as deflection. The person will try to distract you in ways that you will hear in the recorded link, which include raging at you, accusing you, bringing things up from the past, blatantly lying about something else to get you to correct the misstatements, use of insults/racial slurs, threats. This audio recording is between me and addicts that I know but I am not close to them. In close relationships you can expect guilt trips, tears, “you were never there for me” when you catch the person stealing. Keep in mind when you listen that everything said to me is to take my attention away from the real issue–the fact that I saw the guy with a bike that could have been a bike that had been stolen from me and I wanted to take a closer look. Hang in there until the 2:40 point.
Once again, I maged secret recording so you can witness addict behavior with absolutely no editing. I will set the scene.
- I saw a neighbor’s unauthorized roommate with a bike that looked like a bike that was stolen from me
- I knocked in the door thinking we could discuss bc somehow, perhaps through no fault of his, a different bike that had been stolen at Safeway ended up in their apartment. They returned that bike when I showed I had the matching wheel
- DEFLECTION is a major strategy used by thieves to keep people from seeing their actions or confronting them. In the beginning of the video you’ll hear me ask nicely about bike. At the 2 minute 39 second mark the two will attempt deflection by telling, threatening, accusing me if something, getting in my face and when all else fails, I’m called a “nigger.” If your addict gets outrageous when you catch him doing something, don’t allow him to distract you
