Third Time's the Charm

Missed opportunities, chances not taken, mistakes not made.

Twice before, I've met girls and been instantly attracted, 'love at first sight,' but then let things cool off, not in a position to give a full-throated pursuit.

The first was Karen in Kindergarten, the second was Becky in freshman year high school waking from lunch to English, the third is Kat ongoing in support group that I attend monthly.

Noting my pior temerity, before one support group, I sacked up the courage and asked her for and received her digits.

Her time has heretofore been otherwise occupied as of late, but she shall be less encumbered in July.  As such, via SMS she agreed to a tet-a-tet, a discussion after the July group-meeting.  My hopes are quite ebullient, to say the least.


Codename: Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
   Well, I wasn't exactly sitting, More like walking to brush my teeth.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
   More like slight fall, with exaggerated consequences.
All the King's Horses and all the King's men.
   The mobile emergency room.
Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again.
   Fortunately, they did glue me back together again; which that I'm now on the mend.

I fell because my brace was hurting my leg, it threw me into the computer table, split just above my left eyebrow, mobile ER called, eyebrow glued, on the mend, fait accompli.

Efficiencies and Discounts, Foreseen and Achieved, Soon to be Exploited

Awhile back I applied for and yesterday I received a Target Red Debit Card.  Weekly after I lift weights, my Right Hand Man and I shop at Target (higher class than WalMart).   The card gives me 5% discounts at Target stores and, also free 2-day shipping.  Win-Win-Win.

When things are broken, you must fix them

Today, I had my right AFO (Ankle Foot Orthotic) repadded.  I had worn out the lining of my foot brace, and it hurt when I walked.  I stumbled and hurt myself; so, I repaired my AFO, and all's good.


Last Week's Delivery

Sometime ago, I ordered some muscle pharm Combat protein powder via Amazon. I took delivery of it last Wednesday.  Sunday afternoon, I'll use it while weightlifting with my buddy.  I was heretofore using a different muscle pharm product, one with much greater carb load.
lI do feel my strength increasing; I would have gone weightlifting last week but for scheduling and logistical constraints.

I am fully confident that I shall maintain that trajectory, just with less bloat.


Reach out and touch some deals

I've gotten more adept with and have been approved for a Target Red debit card. I shall have mightily more merchandise freedom.  Choice breeds comparative advantage.  With my Red Card, I'll get 5 percent discounts at the local Target store and on, free shipping, special deals. It makes all the sense in the world; strategic synergies abound.  Win-win-win.
