I’ve mentioned here before that I’m claustrophobic.
It’s getting worse instead of better.
I had to have another closed MRI yesterday, and unlike my experience a couple of years ago, I was a bit of a wreck.
The technician used all the bells and whistles to calm my fears — and trick my brain — into thinking I wasn’t in a narrow, closed tube.
But they didn’t work this time.
When I got home, I started reading up on possible therapies, cures even, for this debilitating fear. Guess what the first recommendation is?
Get an MRI.

Lots of people make spectacles of themselves — the Egg included — but this guy is doing it for all the right reasons:
So if you see him — and his very large ball — in your travels, connect!

Tonight was sponsored by the letter Z…
…as in I fell asleep on the couch soon after I ate dinner, and woke up around 11.
(Perhaps it was sponsored by many Zzzzzzzzz’s.)
When I did wake up, my first thought was, “Man, I”m ready for bed.”
I must be catching up on sleep I lost back in college or something.
That’s a thing, right?

I forgot yesterday.
I forgot to write a post.
Since I launched The Egg almost five years ago, I haven’t missed a day.
I have great excuses: A packed schedule. Business travel. Lack of sleep. Or do I have…a brain cloud?
It almost got Tom Hanks in the movie classic Joe vs the Volcano.
Clearly I need a really great steamer trunk.
(This only makes sense if you’ve seen the film. Don’t want you think the cloud is upon you…or is it???)

It’s not a silly question — it’s a timely one.
Today is a national holiday devoted to this salty, crunchy, life-altering, lunch-completing, yummy snack.
Sure, I’ve eaten a few.
Personally, I prefer the BBQ variety. But for some reason — I’m thinking all those healthier choices crowding the snack aisle — BBQ corn chips are harder and harder to find in my neighborhood bodega and grocery store.
So today’s post is my personal plea to Frito Lay, a company I have helped keep in business over the years:
“I want more.”

My cold won’t go away.
It’s been two weeks. I don’t mean to be rude, but…
I felt poopy all day but had to work hard. With congestion. And coughing.
This sounds like a job for…
Thanks, Ditch Plains.
