Boinggggggg...

As a product of American television, I've garnered most of my common knowledge from the boob tube. I've learned a little bit from books, but generally, 80% of what I know I learned from television:

One thing that I find doesn't quite work out in the same way in real life is the head injury. Yes, upon impact you do see stars or birdies fly around your head -- but no. Your head doesn't take the shape of the frying pan... and the bandages don't disappear in the next scene.

Many a time I've seen Tom get his bell rung by Jerry, as a large lump forms on the poor cat's head... tongue hangs out... eyes cross... Fifteen seconds later, he's back on the saddle, using his cunning and wits to try to foil his nemesis.

That's why I can't explain why four days after getting knocked for a loop in a collision with a teammate, I still can't fstohfls think d gdsgdl ylys g clearly and yrthfh feel like sh.. ... ....

What could possibly be the next revelation? Riding a motorcycle and saying "Ayyyyyy" isn't cool? The girls at the Regal Beagle aren't easy? Putting your hand perpendicularly to the edge of your nose isn't the best way to avoid a poke in the eyes?

God, I hope not... If these are true, I'm f*cked.

Get some medical attention too. Concussions are no joke, (but you can still take advantage of it).

Don't forget that all complex family problems, even those involving fraud, incest, and death, are solvable within thirty minutes. See "Ties, Family."

eeyowch. I'd go with the "be sure it ain't a concussion" idea, becasue those things have a nasty habit of getting worser for you as time goes on.

Also, duck's bills do NOT swing around their heads if you give 'em a smack in the kisser. Who knew?

god, prego, i'm so sorry. i wrote about the grandson i'm babysitting for who, at 8 months, climbed out of his crib today and took a dive onto the floor. definitely get med attention, if you haven't already. Oh, and BTW, I meme'd you today. OK if you don't have an idea of what that means, pre or post head injury, I didn't know, either. So if you have time to kill and your eyes still focus, go to meanderings (tutuhoneygram@blogspot.com)to find out what a meme is. and get plenty of rest, Really.

My all-time fave is the resistance to gravity until about 0.8 seconds after the characters, hovering motionless in mid-air after zooming off a cliff and coming to an abrupt x-axis stop, look down.

Whaddup with that?

You make me think and smile, all at the same time. Not an easy feat, dude. Merci!
