The judge was being patient as my attorney read her the litany of sins that were created by the fed in my case….which can best be described as a version of the riot act. Or using a few other references:
– like Nolan Ryan throwing a no-hitter when he was playing for the Angels, etc….
– Brett Favre or Joe Montana leading a come from behind victory
– Jon Camp of Renaissance ripping one of his patented ‘seldom imitated, never duplicated’ bass solos on ‘Ashes are Burning’
– Richard Quest of CNN giving a wonderful report on the state of aviation after the Iceland volcano errupted
Basically, those would be†an idea†of what happened in a verbal vein. I was impressed and grateful because when it came for my turn at bat to delineate what had happened, it was just explaining, in my own words what was going on. Confirming that the paperwork which was submitted and the interviews for same were faulty [I can use other words here, but my crush more than likely will be seeing this and well I have a reputation to maintain of keeping things a little above board] as well as just capitulating the fact that I am disabled [which is not in the traditional vein of same….if you have been reading along, you know this is not the typical, person becomes ill and then is relegated to a wheelchair etc…not being mean, just an explanation]. And in the space of time it takes to listen to Renaissance’s† ‘Song of Scheherazade’, it was over. It is now time for the waiting.
As much as I despise that part of this, it will be worth it. Of all things too…this brought home, by proxy several other things about how our society’s overall mechanics do work. In a sense how stereotypes tend to keep folks in those safe little cocoons and reward for same. And those who work through the system†with a positive†and cooperative mindset tend to be more or less outcasts. I know…Rod Serling in some of his scripts spoke about the same thing…and it is sad that the human race really has not progressed since those were written about 40 years or so ago.
Oh yeah….I did do the innocent bit:†
but it was not the V neck. After all, this was a court of law, not the dollar aise at Food 4 Less [a chain owned by the good folks over at Kroger]. But it was still safe, sane non-treatening, so I could to quote Joe Friday ‘give just the facts, ma’am’
That is it til we have the results/decision……so as always, enjoy the Colourcast as the pictures fly through the air.
