Action heros (including myself)

Rambo was awesome.


Yes, he’s old. Yes, he’s a grotesque steroid freak. But the carnage is profoundly grisly.


Yesterday (Tuesday) night at work I was sent over to a restaurant in one of the buildings because their water was doing something freaky. I went into the room with their hot water heater, which had a metal grating a few feet above the floor. I was looking at the heater and stepped into an open part of the grating to get a better look, but there was no floor there. What looked like the floor was an access hatch from below. An access hatch that dropped out from under me when I stepped onto it.


Fortunately quick reflexes and tree trunk leg muscles saved the day. I’d always wondered what would happen in such an event. Good to know I pack the gear to survive. :-)

I’m gonna hafta bite the bullet with another round of dental work. I’ve got a molar on the right side of my mouth that really hurts. So probably another root canal and another crown. It might delay my move, I dunno. I’m waiting to see what the bang on my new unimproved credit card balance is. But I’d have to do it eventually, so I might as well get it out of the way. And hope nothing else starts to hurt.
