|Well THAT didn't take long.|
The stock market has had its worst opening week in history, wiping out so much wealth that the often mathematically-challenged Bernie Sanders is concerned that there will no longer be a top 1% in our country to rape and pillage. In the Middle East, all of the nations and sects are eagerly choosing sides between Saudi Arabia and Iran for the upcoming Armageddon Bowl, American military personnel are being killed in Afghanistan while the White House refuses to admit that they're even engaged in combat, and the roly-poly little lunatic leader of North Korea just exploded a hydrogen bomb.
Although reassuringly, Barack "I'm Pretty Much Lying About Everything" Obama has suggested that it might not have been an actual hydrogen bomb, but just a new and improved whopper of a standard atomic bomb. Wow, what a relief!
So Hope n' Change was already in a less-than-great mood this week, and then fate played a cruel joke on us...
We visited our back alley doctor (he's no longer covered under our Obamacare policy, so we have to pay cash) for a minor condition, and were prescribed an antibiotic which allows no alcohol for the next two weeks. Not even rinse-and-spit mouthwash!
And according to our friendly back alley pharmacist (who is no long covered under our Obamacare policy), the consumption of any alcohol whatsoever means "you'll start vomiting really badly. And it won't stop."
Which means... (sob)
Which means we'll have to watch Obama's State of the Union address next week cold sober! After which, alcohol or not, we still expect to start vomiting really badly. And it won't stop.
2016, we hate you already.
