WTH?

So, I am running behind already this morning, and I hate starting the day out this way. I overslept, if you can believe it, considering all I have done recently is sleep.

I managed to make it until four yesterday afternoon at work, and that was miraculous. By then I could barely make it into the house, but I accomplished alot at work. I am feeling somewhat stronger so far this morning, but the pain is still there. At this point, I will take what I can get.

I got a compliment yesterday. It made me feel really g-r-e-a-t. Some idiot tow truck driver, twelve feet tall and two inches wide, his pants so large that he had them doubled over in the front and belted, who looked like he hadn't showered in days, smoking a pipe, said to me: "you are sort of gimpy, aren't you?" I replied that I was, He said I and freakin quote: "You sure are a good lookin' gimp!" Thanks a hell of a lot, fucker. Out.

I never cease to be amazed at the things perfect strangers will say. I guess you were supposed to take that as a compliment?! I imagine he was trying to make you feel better, or give you a laugh or something, but still! Don't you just love it when folks have to state the obvious? "Hell no, I just walk like this 'cuz it's fun?!" Hope today goes better - getting closer to the weekend! Love ya, Jamie

I think he deserved a little bit of a slam dunk.

Maybe you could have said, "Well, you aren't too bad looking for a stick man either...."

Generally, I can only think of those sorts of things AFTER it is all over. It's my nature to stammer and look all weirded out but not be able to answer properly. I have found that I can usually come up with whoppers in the car on the way home.

Hey, feel better soon, yes? Maybe try a pain patch instead of pills? I wear a pain patch for my sciatica and it works much better than oxycodone ever did...

Thanks so much to all of you for commenting, it means so much. Maybe the word "gimp" is one that only really OLD people know, or maybe it's midwest?
