In this post: The tamale cure, depressing invitations.
And if the aforementioned I-practically-can’t-type-a-Howdygram-post syndrome isn’t lousy enough, lately I’m receiving some really depressing social invitations in the mail such as please come to a May 23 presentation (with complimentary cookies) about the benefits of cremation and there’s a free stroke screening on June 13 at the Mesquite Elks Lodge, which is located at 4201 Gus Thomasson across the street from Ace Hardware. If I’m willing to invest $139 they’ll also throw in screenings for atrial fibrillation, chronic kidney disease, abdominal aortic aneurysms, peripheral artery disease and osteoporosis. HOLY MOTHER OF CRAP. What does a retiree wear to an aneurysm screening? I might need a new outfit.
