Dave!Getting old sucks ass.

There can be no better indication of this than having things go randomly wrong for no particular reason. Like tonight when I went to get up out of a chair and found that my back was out. How in the hell did that happen? I mean, when I was younger, I'd have to attempt to pull a car out of a ditch to throw my back out. And now? Sitting.

Ideally, I'd join a gym and strengthen my back (and everything else) so that crap like this doesn't happen. But I am usually so busy that just finding time to go to the frickin' bathroom is a challenge.

Perhaps I should start wearing diapers and use the time saved from not going to the bathroom to work out.

But I digress.

The primary consequence of an injured back is that you can't get comfortable. Ever. Unless you take pills, in which case your brain is able to ignore the pain. Unfortunately, your brain ignores everything else as well, so any attempt to work while under their influence is futile. Which is why I usually chose to be uncomfortable. I may not be as productive, but at least I won't spend my entire day staring at a computer screen trying to remember what it is I am supposed to be doing with it.

Which is usually what happens when I sit down to blog, but never mind.

    Is this your subtle way of asking for Depends for the holidays? I’ll totally get you some; I got your back (terrible pun intended)!

  2. claire says:

    Agreed! It does suck. Sorry you threw your back out, that always sucks. And it’s the worst when something goes awry and you didn’t do anything!

  3. I know that feel bro. I was feeling all achy today thanks to crappy weather aggravating derby injuries.

    Take it from someone who happily turns 60 next year… the answer is vodka. No pain and the creativity stays. Well, ok, you may have to do some editing the following day but what the hell. Life’s short.

    I feel your pain. See if you can score some xanax so you will stop fussing about it. That’s what I do. I hope it goes away fast.
