I am officially quarantined as radioactive. The good news it's only a couple of days and on Sunday I can both go out in public and eat with out restrictions. I intend to have an eclair the size of my forearm and a perfectly made grilled cheese sandwich and hard pretzels....and...I digress.
In the meantime I still have a couple of days of exile through which to amuse myself. I've been working on play lists of music which obviously include this for the classic rock lovers among us and this for those preferring more current tunes. One friend called me Hot Blooded. My cousin asked if I was now a Glow Worm. Another friend offered Great Balls of Fire. After being ushered to a room with what I presume was a lead lined container, watching a small vial be extracted from it by a gloved technician who then handed it to me to swallow the contents I returned to my family singing, "This little (radioactive) light of mine, I'm gonna let is shine." I need some more suggestions from all of you.
Pondering music and some of my limitations and side effects, both potentially real and fun to imagine, has led to what I consider to be some good names for rock bands. For my amusement and, I hope, yours I suggest the following:
Atomic Burp (I have this weird sensation in my throat and digestive system, not intolerable but I am kind of wishing I could just belch to relieve it. TMI? Sorry, you may prefer to skip ahead a bit if eructation is disturbing.)
Snot Rockets (We all know what they are but since my dose of nuclear materials I am told the most dangerous thing about me is anything my body secretes or excretes so my snot rockets would have a special potency. You've been warned. It's only going to get worse from here on out.)
Spit Glow (Unfortunately this sounds more like a sad 70s era soft rock group than anything I'd want to listen to.)
Nuclear Piss (I'm told my urine is what will be the most radioactive.)
Hot Vomit (I was told by the nuclear safety officer before being discharged that if I puked within 4 hours of receiving my dose I'd need to contact them so they could help decontaminate the area in which I hurl. Isn't that special?)
So, what are your thoughts as to music I ought to be playing or names of rock bands I could form?
