Bride of the frankenstein
Last night I had a dream that somebody hit me in the neck with a sledgehammer. We were sitting on a train, and the train lurched, and somebody came from behind and hit me. I wasn't even upset about it at the time and I cannot tell you what we were doing on a train. I woke up this morning with a kink in my neck. In the soft part between the neck and shoulder. I cannot turn my head or look up or look down. If I want to look at something I have to turn my whole upper body, which my husband and daughter seem to think is hilarious. Ruby has taken advantage of this vulnerability a few times by trying to put her tongue up my nose and snotting right in my face with full force since I can't turn away. Since the day is already miserable I figure I might as well go get my blood tests today. I am hoping the wait isn't too long because I can't go until 11:00am and my stomach is already grumbling. A person like me is rarely ever actually HUNGRY, but on days when I get my blood tested my stomach growls like a bear and I get sweaty and nauseous and feel like poopy. Why not add a kinked neck on top LOL? Once I get back I will spend some quality time with my heating pad rice pack and the motrin. No muscle relaxants becase they make me mean. I am talking mean like a rabid dog. Any slight noise (talking, the tv, dog snorts, cat burps) makes me snap. They work well, I just wish I didn't turn into a maniac when I take them. Too bad. Off I go to heat up the rice pad and wait for 11:00am. While I am doing that, talk amongst yourselves and pass around some nibblies. Have a coffee or two. We'll have a better visit tomorrow. 'Kay?
