And Then, The Next Scary Thing....

Timidadians, we have a problem.

If you didn’t take the brain dump advice offered a couple of days ago to prepare for the next scary thing, admittedly you didn’t get much time, you must be goin’ wild about now.

Antibiotics aint worth a carrot? This one’s a doozey with bits like; ‘ticking time bomb’, and ‘catastrophic’ amongst the verbosity. Seems you can run but you can’t hide; "Antimicrobial resistance is a ticking time-bomb not only for the UK but also for the world......” “....the "pipeline is drying up" of new drugs which can replace those becoming useless.”

Can it get any worse? Sorry to disappoint, but I’m  sure it can. The next scary thing is just round the corner. This corner, not that corner. The corners are getting closer together all the time. Better get back, right quick, to that brain dump thingy assuming you haven’t already exploded or imploded.

By the way Timidadians, while you’re frantically checking out the bathroom drug cabinet, when you’ve finished and closed the door, wink at yourself in the mirror. Use your left eye. You see that? No? Okay, turn round and wink with the same eye your reflection winked with. You winked back with your right eye, right? How can that be? Who’s in there pretending to be you then? Who knows but, to err on the side of caution, stop looking in mirrors, or anything reflective, is wot I’m talkin’ about.

I’ll leave any Timidadians reading this with that thought, which may well make hairy spiders and shadows seem positively cuddly.

Quote; Helen Keller.

“Doubts and mistrust are the mere panic of timid imagination, which the steadfast heart will conquer, and the large mind transcend.”
