Bag of Randomness for Thursday, April 13, 2017

  • Hiccups
    • I’m on my third day of having almost continuous hiccups. I’d say I hiccup anywhere from one to six times a minute, and if I’m lucky, they may stop for about a half hour, but then they start back up again.
    • You name the household cure for hiccups and I’ll tell you I’ve tried each one at least three times.
    • Yes, I’m familiar with the hiccup girl that’s now in prison for murder.
    • I do find some humor with this and the possibility that God is smiting me regarding my thoughts yesterday, but my diaphragm hurts like hell. Also, it’s caused a loss of appetite and a few cases of vomiting. And even with Ambien, I’m not getting much sleep. One of the worst parts is that after some hiccups, I smell and taste gastric stuff.
    • My discomfort and pain were so bad yesterday I left work early and saw the doctor, coming close to just going to the ER. Too much time researching things on Google will cause some paranoia. A breathing treatment helped, but about an hour after I left the doctor’s office it started back again.
  • I was at our local grocery store standing behind a woman in the “ten items or less” line and she had something close to thirty items. I was perturbed because I only was purchasing two items. But I became further perturbed when she said she needed to break up the transaction four different ways. I became further perturbed when she wrote two checks for two of those items.
  • Passover/bumper sticker thoughts from yesterday
    • Thanks to all of you who took the time to leave your thoughts and comments yesterday. I appreciate the civil tone and giving me the opportunity to see it from a broader perspective.
    • I saw some responses to my thoughts and questions on another more colorful blog which reminded me why I’m often turned off by the church. Many were quick to defend and criticize my biblical literacy and line of questioning and thinking, which I believe is a major fault of the Christian church. Most would first fight and defend rather than welcome the opportunity to provide insight for someone who is seeking to understand. Quick to fight and slow to offer grace. It feeds the perception people aren’t allowed to be sincere with thoughts or questions because they’ll be judged.
    • Someone on that blog commented that I look like a pro wrestler. That may be the highest compliment I ever had regarding my appearance.
  • Letterman’s mother obituary written by her three children.
  • H-E-B becomes largest privately-held employer in Texas
  • Condom-clogged pipe leads police to Austin prostitution ring
  • Ohio prisoners built two PCs from parts, hid them in ceiling, connected to the state’s network and did cybershenanigans
  • The Second Most Popular Language In Every Country
  • I haven’t watched SportsCenter in years but thought I’d see how they would cover the Romo/Mavs story. I thought their bit was actually pretty funny splicing in clips from other things. The video should be cued to start at the fun stuff and you just need to watch 50-seconds of it.

    I can't imagine trying to – much less going to sleep with hiccups.

  2. AndreaJN says:

    I hate the hiccups. Try taking a couple of Tums to stop tasting the gastric stuff.
