Max Baer

I have followed boxing all of my life. I have never seen a boxer that I didn’t admire. But if one were to ask me who was the best “Boxer” I couldn’t say. But I will say that the best “Man” to ever put a pair of gloves on was MAX BAER! God rest his soul.

    Dear Kip

    I lie in bed a lot.  I get up to urinate a lot, so getting bed sores doesn't concern me.  I may have what they call clinical depression.  I hate that term.  I prefer calling it "not being interested in many things.  Maybe I am depressed.  So what?  What are you going to do about it?

    I have a more accurate description of what they call clinical depression.  Depression is the latter part of manic/depressive, and it that gets stronger and stronger the older and weaker one gets as they become less capable of carrying out their manic desires.

    In other words, they're too sad to get mad.  Inside they're steaming, but they don't have the energy to act it out.  This makes them sad.  Too sad to be mad.  That's what other people call clinical depression.

           Hah hah, pretty funny putting those comment in as a response to the Max Baer thread.  I was tempted to post that I knew Max Baer personally and that in real life he was a bully but also a coward who once backed down from me in a confrontation over politics.  But I resisted the temptation.  See, I'm growing already.  It was funny to see my depression post in the Max Baer thread.  I thought maybe you were going to slip the Sparring Partners Needed story in there, something to do with boxing.  I saw the Baer thread when I went in the other day before you put my post in there.  Funny.

            As for this thing called depression, I really don't think I've got it and I really am not sure I care.  I am bored though.  As for the phone, I turn it off maybe once every 2 or 3 weeks for a day when I feel the urge to get lost under the covers for sometimes days at a clip.  But usually the phone is turned off only for 1 or 2 days at the most.  I don't want to hear a sound.  I want to slip into dreamland.  I wake up a lot, don't sleep very well – probably as a result of lying in bed too long. Anyway, if you ever call me and the phone just rings and rings, that's because I turned the ringer off so I don't hear it.  It seems rude, but it's not selective, just me blocking out the world for a day or two.

            I'm gonna have to start reading my stuff before I send it as I noticed a typo or two in the manic depressive essay.  It bugs me. Yeah, I've got to get in that habit – reading before sending but not changing anything other than outright mistakes.  Thanks again.  I plan on returning to the land of the living tomorrow, Wednesday.
