Today - If somebody can explain to me how having a five pound bag of bread flour hit me in the head is a positive thing, now would be a good time.
Uh huh, I thought so. Hearing no takers, let's just move on to me in bitching mode.
Yesterday - a Friday, it was for those who are interested in such things - was particularly horrible. Waking up to aches, pains, and a black depression. Somehow I dragged myself into the office, just a trifle late, trifle being a relative term. What followed was rapid-cycling CPS (chronic pain syndrome) which left me exhausted - passing out and can't get up from the couch exhausted. Too tired to get out of the car exhausted. My mood ran from laughing at Facebook while eating a Whopper with cheese no lettuce (I finally gave in) to wanting to hang my head out the window and throw up. No fast food jokes, folks. That Whopper was GOOD. There were times I could zoom around and get a lot of substantive work done, immediately followed by pain and a deep sense of regret that I could not accomplish more. I can't control this thing; it controls me. All I can do is live in the moments it allows me to live.
Because I crashed on the couch, I actually missed seeing the Orlando Magic win in overtime, over the LA Lakers. I don't like the Lakers, and I don't know why my favorites, the LA Clippers, should have to share an arena with them. Kobe who?
The Magic lost their last 10 games, which added to what is the worst record in the NBA. Finally, a year too late, the head coach was fired. A very nice man, Jacque Vaughn, a class act by all accounts, and a great dresser, but a terrible coach. I don't supposed it helped him that at every home game, while most people were chanting "let's go, Magic", a very vocal contingent was harmonizing with "Fire Jacque Vaughn!" You can see how those would go together, right?
So here is the first game under interim head coach James Borrego, and my boys pull it off, and I sleep through the whole thing. I really really REALLY hate fibromyalgia. Chronic pain syndrome. Whatever.
I'm stepping out of bitching mode now.
