It’s hard to believe that this morning, before breakfast, I was shot up on morphine and watching Edward G. Robinson in Damon Runyon’s "A Slight Case of Murder."  I enjoyed that tremendously.  Before that, I watched a new digital remix/restoration of AFRICA SCREAMS starring Abbott and Costello.  Also featured were Joe Besser and Shemp Howard. Shemp would later rejoin the Three Stooges, and following his death, Joe Besser would take his place.  It was a treat to see Besser, Howard, and Costello working together.  Very funny, of course. 

It is not my normal routine to get shot up on morphine and watch old movies — i had a medical procedure at Swedish Hospital in Seattle (3 stents in the heart), and the chest pain from the wire being shoved in there earned me the morphine shots….made the Edward G. Robertson film sooooo dreamy. LOL

The procedure went fine, from what I hear.  They said I can have S-E-X in FIVE DAYS! YAY…I must remember to call them and find out who it is I am supposed to have sex with, as they didn’t write down anyone’s name on my instructions.

    I’m glad you’re feeling better! Did they at least write down that you should use a condom if you are going to have sex with a stranger?

    Did they also advise which therapist your daughter should see to deal with the concept of her dad having S-E-X? 🙂 Glad you are feeling better papa!

    You should be careful with that morphine. It can lead to the hard stuff — like medical marijuana. Hope you feel better soon.

    Gotta hand it to you – most people go for “Fantasia” or “2001 – A Space Odyssey” when they’re high, but you went for “A Slight Case of Murder.” Bravo!
    BTW, when your daughter read that last paragraph, you are aware that she probably went “Eeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyeeeeeewwwwwwww.”

    Thank you Myra for making my point in case it wasnt clear 🙂 I am also impressed with my dad’s highbrow taste in morphine viewed films 😉

    Anea – you’re quite welcome. I, too, have a father (and mother, for that matter), and I hate to break it to you, but no matter how old you get, your parents can still *always* embarrass you.
    You simply have to wait until they get old enough to put on the ice floe or move to the condo in Florida (my parents’ choice was the ice floe, btw).
