Prudent advice

Lessons learned this weekend:

Do not attempt to descend stairs drunk. You might fall and break your ribs.

Do not attempt to descend stairs drunk. You might fall and break your wrist.

Do not attempt to descend stairs drunk. You might fall and break your tibia and fibula.

Do not attempt to kiss your pit bull while drunk. You might get your mouth rearranged. (Nineteen sutures. I had never had the opportunity to do bilateral infraorbital nerve blocks and a mental nerve block [that's the chin, not the brain] all on the same patient before. Interesting.)

(Sense a common thread here?)

Do not lie to us that you have tuberculosis, in order to get a private room. We know who you are, no matter what name you give. You have very distinctive hypertrophic scars over all your central venous access points, from years of IV drug abuse. You've failed with this scam the last few times you've tried it. Try another city. You've probably used up your welcome at all the fifty hospitals in the Philadelphia area.

Cutting your wrists to make the voices go away is a bad plan.




HAKU

usu(i), usu(maru), usu(meru)

meaning: thin, weak, shallow, light

薄暗い ==  usugurai == (adjective) dim
薄弱 == hakujaku == (noun, adjective that takes な) feebleness, weakness, weak



Top radical is 'grass/plants'. Left lower radical is a radical form of 'water'. Right lower radical is 'spread' (博). Current meanings are borrowed. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Thin plant covering spread over shallow water.'
