Profiles in Courage – Iraqi style
I just read about this today and am really in awe of this man’s courage in leading coalition forces to Jessica Lynch. (Lynch, a 19-year-old Army supply clerk, was captured in an ambush when she and other members of the 507th Maintenance Company made a wrong turn in Nasiriyah. U.S. commandos rescued her Tuesday in a nighttime raid.) In the midst of all the horror that is coming from this war, I find this to be a very moving story.
What’s gonna happen when she turns 40?
I was watching a show called The Pulse on Fox last night (yeah, I know) and saw this story on a woman who, at 29, had a lot of plastic surgery done (lipo on thighs, boobie enlargment, nose job, sculpted cheekbones etc). Apparently, her primary motivation (as she put it) was that she didn’t want to lose her husband in 10 years. Although a normal looking guy in regular clothes, he turns out to be a world class body builder and is all about the body and looking perfect. (Lightbulb goes on over head, right?)
It made me sad that her primary reason for doing this was to keep her husband. (At least that is the slant on the show) And I wondered if she felt that way at 30, how would she feel at 45? Would she end up looking like that one woman who has had so much plastic surgery that she now resembles a cat? (You all know who I mean, right?) I was never age conscious (until 42 came and hit me over the head) and it slammed me hard. What will it do to this woman who feels that’s the only way to keep her husband?
I just shook my head and walked away.

Isn’t it really redundant to have your turn signal on when you are, in fact, IN the turn lane?

How come no matter who I download this one song from on WinMX *and* Kaaza, it still only comes in part way? That is so annoying!
Don’t I sound like Andy Rooney?
