The good news…I’m rash-free and the goiters have almost healed.
O.K., so now I have your attention, I suppose I have to say something positive besides, “the doctors have given me a clean bill of health.”
I work part-time at Duke University now, but in the past I worked as a receptionist at the Boston Bonnie Fish Co. My job was to answer letters from irate customers who found fish bones in their frozen fish dinners. The box the fish sticks came in brashly declared, “Boston Bonnie, Best Bet, NO bones about it!" I would send them several coupons for free fish dinners (depending on the number of fish bones they had attached to their letter) always recommending the clam or shrimp dinners, assuring them they would be bone-free. Sadly, this experience has not translated into another job in the frozen fish industry.
I have owned cats and dogs in the past, but as it turns out I have asthma. I love all animals, but fear my allergies may limit my pet tolerance to a non-furbearing species.
Other than an aversion to the aforementioned fur (cows would be on that list, so Hinduism is out), I have no religious preferences. In fact, no religion is preferable.
I'm an avid sailor and have sailed from Newfoundland to the Windward and Leeward islands, as well as a transatlantic crossing. So if you know your way around a boat, have a pair of topsiders, and can tie a bowline, we should talk.
In politics I lean to port, but don't mind a lively discussion with a starboard point of view.
Despite what you may think from reading this, I don’t do drugs, drink alcoholic beverages, or smoke anything.
The pressure to be far too clever is daunting; the scope for disenchantment is vast.
…but don’t let that stop you.
