Early to Bed, Early to Rise…

One of the things about old people is that they always talk about what's wrong with them. How their foot hurts and that means it will rain. Or they need new shoes. Or something. Or how they have this spot but it went away but now it's back and they have an appointment Tuesday to get it looked at and while they are at the doctor's they'll get him to look at this thing behind the ear. You know how old people are. They are always talking about something related to their health. And they go on and on about it for no reason other than they must have nothing else to talk about.

Why do I bring this up? No reason.

In a totally unrelated matter, I'm nearly over this cold. I'm still taking some stuff to help with the cough. And, if you read an earlier post, you know that anything stronger than aspirin affects me rather badly. So, I've been riding in to work with the missus. Her schedule is a little earlier than my normal schedule. Which means getting to work some two hours ahead of normal. But, I've been leaving an hour ahead of normal. I guess I should explain that she drops me off, then drives another 30 minutes to her job, then gets off work, then drives 30 minutes to pick me up.

Anyway, getting there early has been an actual blessing. No, this getting up way too early isn't the blessing. But being at work at a time when no one is calling or anything means some actual uninterrupted time. Sometimes that's a good thing. Sometimes not. But, this week, I've actually managed to accomplish some stuff. I might actually earn my paycheck this week. Anyway, I'm looking forward to this nagging cough going away and dropping all meds. But, that will mean being able to drive again. And back to my normal schedule. And I'm really beginning to like this earlier schedule. Oh, well. I see it's time to take my drugs again.

And I may need to get the doctor to look at this spot.

    I have a spot... actually two...named Alice and Jerry.
    Can you continue with the carpooling after you quit the meds? I mean will the evil corporation continue to allow irregular work times? If so... then why not keep it up?
    Run, Spot, Run!
