i didn't think he had it in him

I WILL be damned. laurence Simon wrote a post about me that showed a side of him that he usually keeps cloaked. I am delighted that he did it, but he makes me sound like some kind of saint. I ain't that. I've done everything I've done for purely selfish reasons.

Besides, anybody who reads my blog should NEVER be surprised that I am open and candid about things that happen in my life. That's what the blog is about, and it's been that way since the beginning. Yeah... visit here and I let you peek in my underwear drawer.

Prostate cancer and a painful divorce were not fun to live through. Learning to stick a hypodermic needle in my dick to generate an erection was not fun to live through. Seeing my son twice every month was not fun to live WITH, But I blogged about every bit of it. That's what I do.

When I decided to have my operation, I did a lot of checking around first. I learned a lot. I didn't walk into this with no clue about where I was going. I knew where I DID NOT want to be, and that's where I WAS. I found an exit sign. I wanted out of there.

So far, it appears that I made a damn good decision. I'll know for sure in about four more weeks. And when I find out for sure, I'll blog about THAT, too.

That's what I do.


Those are the many reasons I keep coming back here; because you are open and honest. There was one time in the past when you posted something that ticked me off but, you have never lied. That is comendable.

Did you know that Glenn Reynolds posted about you on the 10th? It's the eighth one for July 10th. There are 13 or so posts to get thru on the 11th, but it is there...

You're getting more famous every day, Acidman.

You should keep a count of how many offers you get for the re-commissioning. This ain't one, but I'll but you get a bunch from both sides.

And I'll bet you get a huge spike in hits to your blog starting in about three and a half weeks. There's going to be a lot of intense and rather prurient interest out here, everyone checking back in every day to see if the flag's gone up.

I hope you're not setting yourself up for an enormous case of performance anxiety, knowing half the blogosphere is watching over your, um, shoulder. But don't worry. The most dreaded symptom of performance anxiety, just not being able to get the damn thing up, is the one problem you've got solved, period.

I don't want details from YOU about the pump. I want two of the woman I know you're gonna be "visiting" to email me and let me know how works. Especially Miss Butterscotch Schnapps. In fact, I want a phone call from her!

Underestimation is a two-way street.
