Quasimoto is well known for
his unique physique,
his particular posture,
a singular stance.
He has a humble humped
hunch  and a heart.

After yesterday’s escapade on ice
I awoke to find I was Quasi’s kindred spirit.
My hunch was from holding my sore ribs.
I looked humped as I hobbled on my sore right foot.
Need I bend to the floor for something,
the resemblance was uncanny.

Hmm. A mixed blessing perhaps.

Have you given any thought to joining a bell choir?

I tried out once but they said I was to dingy.

I took a pill for pain when I got home yesterday and I wasn't impressed. Woke up at 3ish feeling just as bad as the night before.
Called into work at 4:00. I took 800 mg of ibuprofen and went back to bed. Got up at 10 and it was a miracle! I could walk without a limp and I didn't have to hold my left side to move around. Thank goodness,I was thinking this was going to hurt bad for a long time.~L

I was told that they'd rather hear a bell pealing sounded by a metal battant than muted by a peeled banana-lookin' one.

I just can't win for losin'!
