Is It Too Early to Go Back to Bed?

We went out again last night. I got in at 3:00 a.m. and woke up at 9:00 a.m. It's now 9:30 a.m. and I'm wondering if it's too early to go back to bed. I think I've given this whole awake thing enough of a chance. It's not all it's cracked up to be. While I'm up, though, I might as well give you an account of our evening.

My brother-in-law's brother Mike is in town from Pensacola. We're all in our late 30's to late 40's age-wise but we don't look it. Check out the 11/7 - 11/19 archives for New Orleans pictures if you don't believe me. You would think that all the years of late nights, drinking and smoking would have had the opposite effect. However, we look pretty good for a bunch of old geezers. Yes, we take our vanity quite seriously.

While we might still look pretty good facially, our bodies have other ideas. My sister, Terry, has to have foot surgery next week and Mike came to town with a 23 year-old girlfriend and bursitis in his elbow. We liked the girlfriend but the elbow looked like an uncircumcised penis and he kept making people touch it. I would say it felt like an uncircumcised penis but I've never felt one so I can't be sure. If you've seen Popeye's elbows, you have a pretty good idea of what Mike's right elbow looked like.

We played some pool at the Star Bar then went to the Black Cat to see Anna and Radi, our Bulgarian friends (see 10/17 - 10/23 archives "Learning Bulgarian"). Anna has moved to California and was in town for the holiday with her new hunka hunka burnin' love German boyfriend. We were quite international last night.

When we were leaving at around 2:00 a.m., Terry thought she lost her wallet and Melissa thought she lost some money. Terry found her wallet and I found Melissa's money (in her purse) and we followed the bouncers out as they were kicking out some hoochie's so we could watch the action. However, no action ensued, and some our our little group went to Waffle House while I wussed out and came home to my big warm bed.

Oh yeah. My big warm bed. That's where I was going. Goodnight (morning).

I hear you about the body.
I typically get seen as about 10 years younger than I am (I'm 46) but, oh my body! My knee, my back, my eyes! This middle age stuff sucks, and I hear old age isn't that grand either...
oh well.

Personally, I felt pretty good in the womb, where I began my training in one-upmanship
