Typing my 1000th post if it was any other fotum except Foo. Where should I post my 1000th?

And how many posts would I have if Foo was counted? Hmmm.

*sigh*

How is it I can feel that I'm moving forward in one moment, and then feel I'm regressing just a few hours later?

jyo, you have my permission. Go home. Now.

I was trying to merge into an exit ramp, and a Cadilac didn't want to let me, so it sped up hard like it was gonna ram me. I steered to get out of the way, and it still bumped me lightly, probably with a 3 mile an hour bump, while we were doing 60 or so. I started to lose it, but floored the accelerator and did some corrective steering. Could have been a huge pile up, but I managed to straighten it out.

Many, many people from detroit drive like it's their life's goal to die in a car accident. It gets annoying.

Well I am sitting here while everyone else is eating dinner

Had my wisdom teeth removed this morning, so I guess tomorrow I will be looking like a chipmunk.

Nah, that car is a tank. A 3 MPH bump won't hurt anything. A little paint is messed up, but it's all primer on the bumper anyway on account of me crashing into a freeway guard rail last winter. (That was going freeway speed, spinning out and hitting the guard rail, and even that didn't hurt the car too much, just marred the paint.)

Hey, fsm, baybuh, had all four of mine SURGICALLY removed (yes, I was knocked out) at once, back in March of '95. But, with drugs, I was able to "chew" grilled salmon from LongHorn on the second night (with my incisors), and was eating semi-solid food otherwise within a week.

Hey, baybuh, as soon as your "pockets" are ready for "solid" food without risk, let me know. We'll organize another CLT Foo lunch.



An', sorry you feel so rotten for the moment. Keep knockin' back those happy pills, baybuh.

I was glad they did it all at once so it's done, so far today it's has been wendy's frosties.
I figure I will wait a couple of days before attempting any none liquid food.

Though they where a little concerned when they brought be back to the land of the living as my BP was 96 over 48

A Polara? I didn't know what that was, so I googled it. Big assed old school cop car huh?

Looks cool, but if I was gonna go vintage, I'd go for a Blues Mobile.

That low?!

Criminy!

Gee, fsm, I'm glad you could suck Wendy's through a straw that soon. I was told not to suck through a straw the first 24 or so hours so as not so disturb the stitches. Guess things have changed, in your favor.

Did they prohibit the intake of Glenfiddich? Or does that only depend upon how close you are to your bed?
