Even The Surgeon General has it!
I think I may have contracted a disease. I have a lot of symptoms. Muscle stiffness, especially in the morning, diminishing eyesight, night blindness, decreased skin elasticity, forgetfulness, loss of hair pigmentation, weight gain, enlarged abdomen, sagging breasts, and flappy arms. I've also noticed an increase in the desire for alcoholic beverages, especially wine, frequent intake of high calorie, high fat foods and a sudden fascination for warmer climates like Florida. I haven't actually had the diagnosis confirmed by a doctor yet, but I'm pretty sure I know what it is, and even worse ... it's incurable and eventually fatal. It's odd since so many people are suffering with it that there aren't any organizations soliciting research money to look for a cure. In fact, the last person that I heard of who was actively looking for ANY kind of a treatment was Ponce DeLeon. I'll have to tell the kids I guess. I'm not sure how long I'll be able to continue working. There may come a day when I'll have to stop altogether. I think I may have gotten it from Ray. I know HE'S been diagnosed... I saw an AARP Card in his wallet.
