Captain’s log: Nightmare on Helm Street?
Yes, now and then. I find there’s very little I can’t do if I just claim I can do it.
Well, I had that classic dream. You know the one. I don’t even like to say it out loud.
William Shatner in a buckboard?
Oh God! Yes, that’s it! With that weird, twisted smile.
Let me ask you this. Was Muhammad Ali there, too?
Yes. Waving at me, from a blue convertible. I think he’s trying to pass Shatner’s buckboard.
Oh, and I forgot. Shatner was wearing a white hat. That seems to have some symbolism in your blog. So, can you make me normal?
Yes. But as a formality, I need to give your name and address to a Government Death Panel.
I understand. I guess it’s your legal and professional obligation, right?
Not really, but they give me a few extra bucks to toss some nutjobs their way.
