Clue/Question:  The paramedic was trained to use a defibrillator and could use one – – –

KCC to offer Basic EMT training in Coldwater - KCC Daily


(CLEAR!!!  Phew!  That was close.  He shouldn’t have gone for that third chili-dog!  Madge warned him.  But, Herb always thinks he knows better.  Have you guys heard the latest diss?  Apparently, now the ultimate putdown is to call someone a “Karen”.  My son was using it yesterday, and this morning I heard a definition of it on some morning show.  It seemed awfully specific to me, and I’m guessing there must be an actual Karen out there, for which it was coined.  But, how could it have become the latest thing?  I once had a girlfriend named Karen, and she wasn’t a whiny, complaining noodge.  She was a feisty little fireball, who loved to play softball.  She wanted me to commit to her . . . so she could dump her boyfriend.  LOL!  Had to turn her down.  She went on to marry an older guy.  She went from a size one to a size fourteen!  That was quite a shock, but as long as she was happy!  I wonder whatever became of her?  Maybe she became a major complainer???

Hey, now!  Hoyt is on a tear with new clue words!  Today he has given us all a “suntan”.  Of course, being a compound word, it was the only one that I struggled to get.  Our pal, ralis95, has yet another reason to update his world famous clue word database.  Maybe Angela can tell us whether it was once used in a Sunday Jumble before?  All of the jumbles are coming up as new.  I noticed that Hoyt once used “gnebu” for begun, so he was being consistent today with “began”.  The answer letter layout was a cryptic eleven letter jumble.  But, I doubt anyone failed to get the final answer.

Fine cartoon of paramedics saving a man’s life.  Jeff must be watching “911”, “911 Lone Star”, and/or “Chicago Fire”.  All fine shows that feature EMTs.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Hi UR. Actually, SUNTAN was just used this past February 19th. Stay well, stay safe. 🙋🏻‍♀️

    SUNTAN was used in a weekday puzzle just last February.
    It tripped me up then, as compound words often do, and tripped me up again today despite its recent addition to my challenging Jumble words list.

    Thank you both, Angela and David!

    I guess it’s hard for me to remember just about anything pre-quarantine! But, that does explain things. The most recent version of the database that I’m working with came out in January! I’m pretty sure that it’s “read only”, so I rely on the big guy to keep me up to date. Maybe it’s time I requested an updated edition? — YUR

    YVW. And I thought you might be interested in this article. Karen became a “thing” about 2 years or so ago. I think the origin might have been a man who took to Reddit trashing his ex-wife. And as do many internet “vents”, it took off like wildfire and easily became legend. It doesn’t take much! 😉 But on a global scale, it had died down somewhat…until recently. For some reason the Corona virus made it once again rear it’s ugly head…and voila! We’re back on Karen…Be well, stay safe…and be kind to the Karens you may come across. God knows the poor women have suffered enough already….😉
    And here’s 🍷to a good night.

    Thanks, Angela! “Can I speak to your manager?” This is the line that was stressed this morning. I’m sure that a lot of people are using it (Karen) on a variety of women, blurring the lines . . . as usual. — YUR

    YVW…And my heart goes out to all retail workers today…Lack of patience, rudeness and a seemingly all around sense of ignorance is being directed towards them…and they so don’t deserve it. Deep breaths, huh? Wear a mask..and wear a smile under it…Have a good one. Be well, be safe, 🙋🏻‍♀️

    Ah, yes, Unc, the outdated database would explain the SUNTAN imbroglio ;-). There have been a number of new regular words since January, so asking ralis95 for an update might be a good idea; DLH does like to work almost-new words back into play.

    Angela, that is great advice about retail workers. Be extra nice to them and wear a mask **for their protection** even if you don’t think you need or should “have to” wear one. Remember that about 15% of covid-19 patients never show symptoms, so you don’t really know whether you have it or not, and even patients who do get symptoms typically don’t feel sick for the first two-to-thirteen days. We have to protect retail and other essential workers.

    Hi David…Thank you. There’s just way too many incidents on the news of these boorish, ignorant people hurling insult after insult at the poor, overworked, underpaid retail personnel. Refusing to wear masks, complaining about shortages, etc, etc. Do they think these people are there working because they’re enjoying it? They’re more scared than we are…They’re there each and every day, forced to come into contact with so many people…so many germs. I just don’t get some people. They all should come here to NYC and just take a peek into one of our ICUs. Just a peek…I’m sure they’d change their tunes. It’s ravaged NY..not to say that it hasn’t decimated other parts of the country too…But it’s so bad here, still. I personally have lost 7 souls to the damn scourge…and I fear for myself, and everyone I know. So these ingrates who think it’s ok to take their biased frustration out on someone else, just irks the hell out of me. It’s totally uncalled for. Be well, David. Stay safe. And I apologize for the venting. 🙋🏻‍♀️
