Country Sayings Saturday

Not a Country Saying Per Se…

I received a comment about jumping off the bus from a friend via email, “After my stroke, I was “placed” in a nursing home. Had no choice, was not really in a mental-physical condition to object. Discharged myself against medical advice ADSAP (As Damn Soon As Possible). I continue to recover, but I am doing so on my own terms and not drooling in a corner waiting for my microwaved gruel. So even if youre (sic) ON “the bus”, recognize its a bus…cue Admiral Ackbar “It’s a trap!”…and do whatever is required to get yourself OFF the bus…” (emphasis added).

There you have it, sheer damn manliness with a Star Wars sub-quote.  Sounds like what my Dad would have done had he ever been in that situation.  That’s tough, country tough.

Or as our hero Winston Churchill said, “Never, never, never give up!”  He might not have been from the country, but he was from a country, right?
