Remember those dolls whose arms and legs used to snap off?
My leg feels like some not very nice child tied it in knots and is now trying to pull it off at the hip. Consequently, I haven’t had a good night’s sleep all week.
So our plan for today is to try and rest–I’m buoyed up now by the wonderful glorious news from “thewhiterabbit,” which took me by surprise this morning: maybe my leg will be next.
Okay, I see Violet Crepuscular coming up the sidewalk, I’ll try to give you her next chapter of Oy, Rodney. And then, I think, some more prayers of thanks, a nice cigar, and one of Denzel Washington’s Equalizer movies. Yeah, I know they’re rather violent; but they also make me want to stand up and cheer. There’s something to be said for a character with well-nigh incredible powers and resources who uses them to rescue powerless people who are getting crushed. Could Sir Lancelot do more?
As Prester Jod once said, God makes use of heroic deeds and hard fighting.
And He hears our prayers! Let us never forget that.
