I might be sick.

It's hard to tell for sure. I might have a bit of a sinus infection, or I might be suffering from lack of sleep. Or maybe it's a combination of both.

Felt like crap all day today. I was very excited about coming straight home after work and taking a nap.

The nap thing - it only lasted half an hour before the nightmare came.

This one, I remembered. Usually, lately, I don't remember what it is that jolts me awake, bathed in my own sweat with my heart threatening to leap out of my chest. But this one, I remembered.

That image is burned into me now, so I doubt I'll sleep tonight either. Unless I'm sick.

Fuck, I hope I'm sick.

Did you use to live in Omaha Nebraska. 20+ years ago, I played a lot of pool and now am back playing and was told that one of the guys we use to play with, possibly you, in Omaha became famous in BANKS and goes to DCC and the like each year.

I use to be in the USAF when I came to Omaha from Alaska and played at a pretty good level, playing with guys like John Ritonya, Lee Norton, etc.

Just wondering if you are the same guy.


Yes, it's me. I remember you, of course. You stopped playing and the rec center became a lot more boring.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
