    I have had to cut way back. I just don't feel good if I drink more than 2 or 3.

    I drink wine and liquor pretty exclusively. I'm going to guess I average 2 shots of Scotch a year, and probably 5 glasses of wine, maybe 6. Every year.

    I drink more than I smoke though. I used to average a cigarette every 3 years, but lately, it's more like one every 5 years. When I do have my quintennial (sic) cigarette, I only smoke with theater people and only when I can bum a cigarette. They are bad influences on me.

    There is definitely more to this story.

    you may have to transition directly into injectables. Ask your doctor now!

    Yes, a lot more. The travails of being the child of an aging and somewhat high-maintenance parent…

    I know you didn't mean it to come out this way, but your language here is not elegant. My son has Down Syndrome, and he is far more popular and gracious than I will ever be. So please be clear: It isn't the lack of intellect that actually bothers you. It is the presence of attitude.

    Get the vaccine. Neither my wife nor I got it when we should have, and shingles subsequently caused her enough nerve damage to impart permanent, partial but not-fully-correctible hearing loss. I learned the lesson and got mine. It was painful, but completely worth it.

    I have every intention of getting it. Just not looking forward to it.

    Don’t plan anything for Saturday.

    I completely understand. I was just hoping it would help you to withstand it with the certain knowledge that it is totally worth it.

    Yep! We’re re-watching the first two seasons in preparation. On second viewing, I could argue for Connor Roy as the most astutely observed character even if he’s on the periphery.

    The mess Kendall makes at both the board meeting and the wedding…wow, great tension-filled scenes.

    Absolutely correct, it is not the lack of intellect that bothers me, it is the lack of respect for mine. Please accept my apologies. I have great respect for those who can be popular and gracious, in my experience they possess an ability to see the good in others most of us can only dream of having.

    I have a question. I know I can reply to PMs in "mobile", but if I am going to send a new PM I have to go to "standard". Took me a few weeks to figure that out in the halcyon days of the Presidential Thread. Can you spork from "mobile" or do you have to go into "standard"? The reason I ask is when I spork I don't receive any indication that said spork was sent. I do have quite a few of you I can't spork because of the spork rules...which should be relaxed on this thread, because this is a small group. But just like in my home, no one cares what I think.

    Sporks in mobile are just the little +/- button. Feel free to practice on me.

    I think you spork on mobile with the +/- button at the bottom of the post, to the left of 'Report' and 'Quote'.

    First day of school today.

    My colleague had to have a kidney removed somewhat unexpectedly so I'm teaching his courses in addition to mine. That means my 0.15 posts/day is about to drop precipitously.
