Happy late b-day. Guess I'll need to put it on my calendar now so I don't miss it.
Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.

I would say you have some type of cabin fever. Likely the highly contagious third variety, except on only one side of the body, not both sides. Also, appear to have local swelling and fever in the back.

Is it time for a 1964 122 wagon?
