Cranky Large Medium reading, 15 June

Go away.

Will you leave, please? Go away, far away. Why are you still here? Is there a problem with your directional sense. Let me make it simple: there is here, and there is where you should be. Turn and try to get to that place. Why is it you're not turning, now? Oh, you want something from me. And that would be...? A reading. Who'd 'a' thunk? Well if giving you one of those is what it takes to get you back on that path to yonder, let us tarry no more! Here you are:
You are a smarty-pants goody-two-shoes who applies diligence to everything you do. Bully for you, you also like to read and think really hard. Not only that, but you have friends (!), and you're generally popular among them. That makes you equal to my parents' Labrador Retriever.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But, look on the bright side. At least you're still around to complain. That beats what these people have, as, on this date in history, they all were sent to the great doggy paradise: Emperor Go-Sanjō, Andronikos III Paleologos; John Cavendish, John VI Cantacuzenus, Murad I, James K. Polk, James Short, Kristian Birkeland, Otfrid Foerster, Wendell Meredith Stanley, Arthur Lewis, John Vincent Atanasoff, Prince Lazar, Thomas Campbell, Guillaume Courtois, Ary Scheffer, Louis-Claude Daquin, Alfred Bruneau, Robert Meredith Willson, Ella Fitzgerald, ... Stan Winston, George K. Brewer aka George Reeves, Steve Cochran, Victor French, Hume Cronyn, Giulio Cabianca, Sam Crawford, Jimmy Dykes, Andy Stanfield, Happy Chandler, Dick Murdoch, Choi Hong Hi, Sherri Martel, Robert Stethem, John Connally,
and John Leslie "Wes" Montgomery.

'Round midnight the party will have to end.
Happy birthday, anyway.
