That title has NOTHING to do with this post at all. I just have the No Diggity song in my head and that title sort of created itself.
|I worked at Pecos Bill Cafe in the FALL of '97!|
Today I'm writing about the aftermath of The Fall. Not the season filled with crunchy leaves, beautiful orange trees, Halloween parties and Thanksgiving. I'm talking about The Fall - where my body so rudely met the Earth thanks to gravity and an uneven sidewalk.
Yesterday morning I woke up with a throbbing head ache. Not your traditional form of headache, but like my whole head just hurt. My cat delicately brushed her head up against me. Naturally she hit my chin. I almost cried. I couldn't even touch myself. (Wait, not like that song. Stop it!) I looked in the mirror and I had a deformed chin. And a lovely bruise to show for it, too. (I tried to get pictures, they wouldn't turn out.) Breakfast was interesting - because I could hardly eat. Throughout the day I was doing chores and feeling stiff. I could hardly get my bra off when it was bed time. Well that was just less than 24 hours after.
Cut to today.
I could hardly move my arms in swim class, let alone use the heaviest weights we have. I mean I DID do it all with my regular weights - but it was sooooo hard. I was moving pretty slow. And every time my water weights hit my right thigh it stung. It hurt to get dressed today. I'm such a whiner right now.
I have a line going over my thigh where the edge of the sidewalk hit me. My right shoulder is so stiff I can barely lift my arm. The left hurts, but nothing like the right. But really the reason I'm whining ... I am sooo hungry. Can I eat? Hardly! I tried to have a banana and I can't even open my mouth wide enough to take it in.
OMG - is it just me or is this the perviest blog I've ever written without even trying?
That's all I have to say about that. (I'm kind of on a Forrest Gump kick right now since they keep replaying it on TNT.)
