Painkillers please

Thursday eve:

Threw out my back. Movement is painful. Fucking sucks. Missed D's bachelor wknd. Loopy on muscle relaxants.

Friday

Slept the whole day, slept the whole night

Saturday:

Able to stand up and walk short distances. Every other step causes sharp pain in the base of my spine. Taking it easy. TV with the missus. Lucky to have her.

Newfound appreciation of/sympathy for:

1. Lady from commercial who moans, "I've fallen... and I CAN'T GET UP"
2. Supermarket employees who wear hernia-preventing man-girdles
3. "Walk-in" bathtubs (as advertised in the New Yorker)
4. The Clapper
5. People who have been repeatedly stabbed in the back with a sharp dagger

Listening to:
