    Influence

    I learned a couple things about influence, early on

    High school Western Civ class

    I begin to yawn

    Can’t stop

    I’m in the front row (Prof Healy liked me up close)
    Not long after, everyone is yawning

    Healy, rather proud of his stoic persona, developed a look of consternation, zeroing in on me
    It’s hard to grin while yawning, but I managed it

    Found the same with upchucking

    Stayed home from school once because I really was sick for once
    Couldn’t keep anything down
    Violent heaves, even the dry ones

    Heh, after tossing one of content on the hallway carpet (trying to get to the can) my little brother began to barf, right beside me

    I was rather proud of that

    It’s hard to laugh while vomiting, but I managed it

    Way it is, ain't it

    I'm now missing my big (little 4'11") sister
    Gone too soon

    I did a stand up at her funeral

    Big big funeral
    3000 or so folks
    it's rather easy to make sad folks laugh
    the place roared

    She'd of loved that
