The Hits Just Keep Coming

Whoever coined the phrase an apple a day keeps the doctor away can suck it.
I have been eating an apple every day on my way to work for the past month or so because Mrs. Shife noticed that my food journal had no entries containing fruits or vegetables.
Why the food journal? Well in my quest to figure out this damn food allergy the doctor asked me to do it to help solve the mystery.
I guess Mrs. Shife also wants me to be around for awhile so she thought it would be a good idea if I mixed in a salad or a fruit into my caveman diet.
Anyway I'm eating apples and guess where I've been twice in the past 3 weeks.
If you guessed the doctor's office then you are the big winner.
Click here for your prize.
First I dislocated my finger playing softball.
Then this week on Monday I got stung by a bee while playing softball.
Well this bee was a mutant or something because my foot and leg swelled up real nice. Then I got blisters that starting popping and oozing Shifeness.

I went to the doctor and turns out I picked myself up a nice infection.
Yay me!
It's been on the top of my wish list forever.
Good times.
I think the phrase might have to be changed to an apple a day can kiss my ass.
I think it also might be time to take a break from the game.
Hope all is well with you. Thanks for stopping by.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.


  1. Multiple brussel sprouts a day. That is the secret...

  2. I blame it on sports; never liked them, ha.

  3. Ouch. I feel for you. I got stung on the forehead a few weeks ago by a hornet and got a fantastic knot on my forehead for my efforts.

  4. Whilst I am sorry for your predicament(s) I have to endorse Mrs Shife's idea that an apple a day is good for your innards. Maybe the bee was trying to get a piece! I do hope you recover from these irritating and painful setbacks SOON.

  5. The gods are trying to tell you something: Stop playing softball!

    "What have we got to do to get through to this guy? Strike him with lightning?"

  6. Yes, but are you eating ORGANIC apples? See, that could be the problem.

  7. wow, you're falling apart faster than a dodge mini van.

    but as they say, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
