How apropos that I would find a new traveling companion as I am beginning my new journey – 400 days ’til 40. I didn’t, however, expect to find my new companion on my @ss. Yes, my new cyber friends, Hermie is my new pet hemorrhoid. He has taken up residence in a place I would rather not have anything reside. I suppose this is one of the many gifts I have to look forward to as I make that climb to 40. As time and gravity and wear and tear take their tolls on my not-so-youthful body I am told I will encounter many new surprises, and Hermie is just one of the lovely things I have to look forward to.
So, folks, I wonder. Do you think Hermie will be with me 400 days from now??? (The correct answer, by the way is “Hell no!”) The question is, how will he leave me? Will he walk out on his own, or will he have to be forcibly evicted from his residence in a location meant to be exit only, and not a parking zone?
Well, there you have it – in my quest to find deeper meaning in just 400 days, I have now told anyone silly enough to read this blog that wiping is not as easy as it was when I was 401 days away from 40. Getting old sucks, though, as my father used to say, “It beats the alternative!”
