Knock On Steel

If you happen to be dealing with “..the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune...”
(Hamlet - Act III, Scene I – William Shakespeare)

“You’d best wear a suit of armour that fits well.”
(E. Stewart)

Mine fits pretty well. At least here’s no slippage except for the visor part – but it's supposed to go up and down, so that’s okay. Sometimes I deliberately CLANG it shut when I’m trying to bite my tongue. (Carefully, of course.)

But it’s stuffy in here.

And I feel a bit like Darth Vader. (A lightsaber would be handy, too.)

May the Force be with me.

(This post may be somewhat cryptic to those not cognizant of my way-too-long-history. Sorry.)

Lash on the armour...and be glad you can take it off sometimes, and in the end, you'll be able to set it aside.

Sorry you need it. Sometimes things are really sucky...

Chin up.

As Jasper Friendlybear of CBC's Dead Dog Cafe says:

Stay calm
Be brave
Wait for the signs

Sounds like you could use a hug, but not while you are wearing that.

Beth said...

Yes, and basic black never goes out of style.

Very, very difficult keeping the chin up with that thing on - makes me feel like keeling over backwards.
(Thanks, pal.)

Wise words, Jasper.
(Although there has been way too much waiting...)

Cyber-hugs work no matter what. I'm going to consider that hug a done deal.

Now this is a warrior I can visualize...and who is your opponent..oh wait, I know....

I wanted to be Darth Vader for SO long. And now I find out that you are indeed him.

Whatever it is, may the "force" be with you.

Beth said...

why bite your tongue??/what have you got to lose? I say...Spill it!!! Get a load off your chest!!!

I got your back, BTW...if you need me.

YOU are as strong as your armour - it's just nice to have it sometimes! YOU are not alone in there!! A tight fit but I'm with ya!

Steel...brings to mind so many different contexts. It's a metal that can be molded into any shape or form. Many your soft side, hard side, suit up when you need I making sense here?

(I've worked with steel for a long time....the machines would pound that sheet of metal into many different sizes of pots and pans and lids...amazing what you can do with it.)
