Oh my god, you would not believe what a fucking INCREDIBLE day I had today!

Ok, not really, but I learned in my speech class that you should start off with impact, you know, as an attention getter. I think I will start every LJ post with that sentence above.

Anyway, I was just thinking about standing, and how much I hate to do it. Whenever I am standing I'm always thinking about how long it will be before I can sit down again. I've always been a lazy bastard but I think being in the army was what really made me hate standing. We always stood for the most pointless reasons. When I was in this field unit we would have three or four "formations" a day where we would gather together and just stand there in rows while some fool told us what we did, what we were doing or what we would do, or just ranted pointlessly at us. When I think that I could have been sitting all that time that I was standing it makes my ass burn. Parades were the worst, we would stand in rows for hours, no kidding. People would pass out from standing there so long. And it was generally for some old guy who was retiring and was also bitter about having to waste time there, looking out at all of us standing when we could have been sitting. Who knows, we could have even been sitting with beers.

In other news I have an incredibly stinky patient today. It's one of those patients where, even after you go home and take a bath in isopropyl alcohol and then set yourself on fire, you still feel dirty and infected. You feel filthy to the marrow.

Happy Friday!

I'm taking a speech class in argumentation next semester so although you think you had a fucking incredible day today, you're wrong.

Haha, I love this post.

I think what ruined me for standing was rowing. "Wait -- I can be an athlete sitting down?" From there to cycling. Maybe next I'll take up wheelchair basketball.

We had to stand for hours in the hot humid Maryland sun in Black full uniforms, rows and rows of solar energy absorbing people.

Regularly we had people pass out or fall asleep standing up...while standing there during the parade comments.
