Res

I’ve been finding that I have an almost visceral fear reaction to legal proceedings. Perhaps it’s just residual anxiety from The Troubles, where any legal document I received was certain to bear yet more bad news. I don’t know. The feelings are real, and affect me to the point of causing insomnia and a certain amount of agita.

This all presents a bit of a challenge since I get to handle all of the subpoenas that arrive at my office. Yesterday, I was even fortunate enough to be deposed for three and a half hours over the contents of a record. I was nervous enough to forget my home address for a moment. I’m not sure that I gave this particular sphere of my duties any thought when I applied for the position, but I’m certainly in the thick of it now.

I guess I’ll just chalk it up to exposure therapy.

What's in a name?

You can't sing the blues until you've lived them

I’ve got worn out skivvies, baby
Worn out skivvies got me down.
I’ve got worn out skivvies, baby
Worn out skivvies got me down.
I got holes on my butt cheeks
From draggin’ my ass all over town.

The elastic waistband’s sprung
Can’t keep ‘em slidin’ off of me
The elastic waistband’s sprung
Can’t keep ‘em slidin’ off of me
I’m wearin’ initials of this chick
In New York I’ll never see.

Boxers, briefs, or dropbottoms
The story always stays the same.
Boxers, briefs, or dropbottoms
The story always stays the same.
As soon as one pair starts goin’ baby
All the others jump that game.
