In her memoir, Alison Arngrim, the actress who played Nellie on "Little House on the Prairie," describes how she became friends with a Swedish woman who'd had a sex change. When her parents explained about it, her first response was, "You mean I can be a boy when I grow up if I want?" because she was a tomboy. Luckily, her parents didn't take this too seriously.

It's like holding up a plate of rancid meat and telling someone smugly that they can't have any.

This might sound odd, but there was this story I loved as a kid called "The Fisherman's Wife," about a poor fisherman who catches a magical fish and spares its life. He is given a wish and asks for something modest which is granted, but his wife keeps pushing him to ask for more and more. Finally, the fish gets fed up and says, "Go back to your hovel," revoking all the wishes.

I feel like I'm at that point with libs wanting concessions. They've just pushed too far.

I have nothing against gay people, but if I never see another rainbow flag again, that will be fine with me. Let's have a society where no one is defined solely by who they screw.

Same here. My dad has been in the hospital three times since getting the clot shot. Feeling that way is natural. It will likely pass in time.

Saw a sticker at the pump that said "F*CK Biden." That was a new one for me.

"Like, why is it always like, a big and brassy woman"? Exactly.

They seem to have very narrow "rules" for how to impersonate a woman. No creativity. It's always - bigger and more "colorful" is best.

Why do none of these guys ever dress up like a librarian, for example? Why does no one have an introvert alternative persona?

Sounds like Shel Silverstein. That's a compliment.

They did a movie "Dark Waters," with Mark Ruffalo. It's pretty sobering them dismissing all the deformed children their employees who worked on the Teflon assembly line wound up having.

I don't get it. It's a mass email, it's not aimed at you personally. Just delete it if it bugs you. If it does trigger you, maybe seek professional help?

I'd go to the ER if I were you. I had a tick bite a couple months ago, but it healed after two weeks. It sounds like you definitely shouldn't be treating this on your own. Even temporarily wearing a mask if it's required to see a doc and get diagnosed would be worth it if you ask me.

I feel bad for her. My grandmother had shingles (this was way before COVID) and she is usually really stoic but said it was one of the worst pains she ever felt.

True. Japanese women who refused to bind their feet were ostracized and couldn't find a husband. Also it started when they were little girls so they probably didn't have a lot of choice in the matter.

I find it amusing that libs who got on about conservatives being brainwashed by Fox are on their multiple booster and believing that having COVID would have been worse without them.

Very true. Not necessarily defending her decision, but previously the Trump family had been treated like royalty among the liberal elites. So she has a thinner skin than Trump but honestly, who doesn't? It can be brutal to have your former friends turn on you, even if you're just an average person.

I saw an adult man who was out biking collapse and fall off. Very scary. It was not a hot or humid day. He appeared to be in excellent shape and was not hit by anything that I could see. Don't know if it was vax related, but I wondered.

I had problems pronouncing certain words as a kid and had speech therapy. Often when I was talking to people I didn't know, I would substitute a synonym that I knew I could pronounce without anyone asking me what the heck I was saying. I still do this. I never made the weird blunders Biden does that libs claim is due to stuttering.

I know this has also been said of Hitler, but the world would have been a better place if W had gone to art school and not into politics.

A responsible doctor will tell you that the side effects may include a worsening of your depression, anxiety, etc. and to stop immediately if you notice this. Unfortunately, not all doctors will bother discussing this possibility.

To quote Dave Barry, they're so overcome, they knock over their bottle of Visine eye moistener.

My dad is a boomer. He's still wearing a mask every time he goes out. If I tried to talk to him about some of the recent stories about clot shot dangers, he'd wind up screaming at me. Not all elderly people are willing to open their minds.

Probably no "Mook Elementary Schools." I'd hate to have to claim my kids went to one named that.
