The Mitigated Gall (Part II)

SO IT'S SURGERY for your humble correspondent after all -- but not until next Thursday! I fully agree it may seem odd to look forward to surgery, but the pain and aggravation that I'm dealing with because of my gall bladder is enough for that. I want this dealt with, and soon! Plus, the surgeon is a very sharp guy.

Meanwhile, I'm stuck on my no-fat no-oil no-dairy diet for -- God save me -- at least a week. Next Saturday, I might be able to stomach a cheeseburger, and I'll hope -- hope -- to be "fully operational" again sometime in mid-June.

I keep waiting for the Gallic Wars pun, but it never arrives......

Oh, and dude, that reminds me: have a good trip down South. Enjoy it!

Holy Crap! Good luck, Ben -- my thoughts will be with you. And yeah, I, for one, am simply shocked that the Great Ranter himself is unable to conjure sufficient bile. I never thought I'd see the day. I'm sure you'll be good to go on the other side, though.

Thanks, Geoff! As for the bile -- yeah, I know. I mean, I was always about that.
