It's my thing but, I need to start bringing notes to myself when I go to Krystel's. You know, like, remember you've got a bad hip, so don't dance all night with the ladies. You'd think it would dawn on me after a few times, wouldn't 'ya. Wrong, salsa breath! So, I get up each Saturday (sometimes morning, sometimes not), and do a self examimation.
The first thing I do is look around and make sure I'm at my apartment. Then, I do a quick body exam to make sure all the parts are still there and Ralph's ok. My next move, and I use the word loosely, is to head towards the bathroom to make sure I don't have marks on my head where I usally wear the lampshade as a hat.
Assuming all check points are fine, I then try to recreate the evening in my feeble little mind with the hopes that I didn't do or say anything I could possibly regret or that could be used against me in a court of law. This is followed up with a quick check in my voice recorder on my cell phone as I oft times record messages to myself. Thankfully, I speak fluent Scotch, so I'm able to translate any messages to self.
Well, my little imbibers, last night was no exception and my record remains intact. I first noticed the pain when I opened my eyes. The pain was then aggravated as I limped to the bathroom and the previous evening started to come back to me.
(Fade in...) I remember singing "After The Loving" with the band and I stepped into the audience and sang the song to Barbie. (Fade out...Blank...then Fade in...) A girl said," Ay, Jimmy, don't spin me so much, I'm getting dizzy". (Fade out...Fade In...) I'm taking off my jacket and hanging it up. (darkness).
Yeah, I did it again. I'm going to make a few calls later to find out if I had fun last night.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
A blind man was walking with his seeing eye dog when they came to an intersection. Ignoring traffic, the dog promptly guided the man into oncoming traffic. Amid horns blaring, tires screeching and people yelling, the man and the dog arrived safely at the other side of the street and the man reached into his coat, pulled out a cookie and gave it to his dog.
Amazed at the man's actions, a bystander said to the man, "Why did you give the dog a cookie after he almost got you killed?"
The man replied, "I'm just trying to locate his head so I can kick him in the ass!"
