Oh man. I may not be using the same approach as the lady in the picture but I’m not far off it: I’ve had a bad head cold for the last ten days or so which, since Monday, has mutated into some kind of sinus problem. In other words, I’m currently a one-man snot producing facility and there’s no sign yet that I’ve reached peak production levels.
Given this and the fact that it’s already Thursday, I think I’ve no option but to rule myself out for Sunday, which is a pity because my shiny new 2009 Club Mayo Dublin card arrived in the post the other morning and I was looking forward to giving it its first day out down in Charlestown. Oh well, it’ll have to wait for the match against the Dubs on the 22nd.
Because I’ll now be following the match on Midwest on Sunday, I will, of course, be able to provide the same barrage of updates to the site via Twitter that I did for the Donegal game but the downside is that, once again, there’ll be no pics or video clips with which to embellish the match report (which again will be based only on second-hand observations). This’ll be the same for the Kerry game the following weekend as I’d never planned to go to that one: regular readers will know that I’m allergic to anything to do with the Kingdom. That’ll be three matches in a row that I’ll have missed, which is slightly alarming but there’s snot much I can do about it, I’m afraid.

Sorry to hear of your snot problem Willy Joe.
We’ll have to try and win without you. We’ll
miss the pics. and video clips. Get well soon
and keep up the good work. Akamore man.
Sorry to hear you’re knocked for 6 WJ and forced to forego the trip to Charlestown. It’s miserable enough waking up to the “depression recession” every day without having to deal with a bug on top of that !!
Hard to smile in the midst of all that but if (or should that be when) Mayo bag a win on Sunday it might help. Another way of raising a smile is good joke. So here’s a few old classic Doctor ones from the great Tommy Cooper : old but claean and simple – get well soon as they say !!
Walked into a doctor’s office and says, “Doc, I’m horribly sick!”
The doctor looks at me and asks, “Flu?”
“No, I drove here.”
A woman told her doctor, ‘I’ve got a bad back. ‘The doctor said, ‘It’s old age. ‘The woman said, ‘I want a second opinion. ‘The doctor says, ‘OK. you’re ugly as well. ‘
A man walked into the doctor’s, The doctor said ‘I haven’t seen you in a long time’
The man replied, ‘I know I’ve been ill’
I went to the doctors the other day and I said, ‘have you got anything for wind’ ,
so he gave me a kite.
I went to the Doctors the other day, and he said, ‘Go to Bournemouth, it’s great for ‘flu.
So I went, and I got it.’
I went to the doctors with a jelly stuck in one ear and custard in the other. The doctor asked, ‘what seems to be the problem?’ I said ‘you have to speak up, I’m a trifle deaf.’
A man goes into the doctors. The doctor says, ‘Go over to the window and stick your tongue out.’
Man says, Why? The doctor says, ‘I don’t like my neighbours’
‘Doc, I can’t stop singing the green green grass of home.
‘That sounds like Tom Jones syndrome’.
‘Is it common?’
‘It’s not unusual.’
I went to see my neighbour and knocked on their door. The lady of the house answered, I thought she looked a bit odd. I asked her if her husband was in. ‘Johnny passed away this morning I’m afraid’ she said.
‘Oh dear, that’s awful’ I said ‘What on earth happened?’
‘Well he just told me that he felt a little poorly and took to his bed and that was it’
I didn’t know what to say. I asked if she was with him at the end. ‘Yes. I was’ she sobbed. I enquired if he managed any last words. ‘Well, yes a few’ she said.
So I asked her, ‘He didn’t say anything about a tin of red paint did he?’
I’ll have to keep taking the medicine, I guess, and sit back and enjoy the Mike and Billy show on Madwest. Love the jokes, Ma-Yoman – the old ones are the best!
