My dear old Grandmother used to say that to me when I was a little kid and I had no idea what she was talking about.
I sure as shit do now.
Of course, I have been living with pain every day for the last 39 years now anyway with this fucked up lower back.
But now I know what she was talking about when she used to tell me she had “Mystery Pains”.
If you are over 50 years old, you know exactly what she was talking about too.
Those days when you go to sleep at night feeling fine and wake up the next day and your shoulder hurts.
Or you can’t turn your head because you suddenly have a crick in your neck.
Or your knees hurt.
You know what I’m saying. Weird shit with no apparent cause
Well, I turned 59 years old about an hour ago and I can feel every minute of it right now.
I just got home from work and my feet are killing me, I can’t hardly stand up straight because my lower back is killing me and I have had a weird crick in my neck for the last 3 days.
I have no idea where that one came from.
Being in pain lets you know you are still alive I guess and that beats the alternative all to hell for sure.
I decided two weeks ago that I was going to say Fuck It and take today off.
I’m taking Monday off too.
Gonna have me a little mini vacation.
Don’t give a shit if I get much of anything done either.
I’ll probably just go fuck around out in my own little Personal Disaster Area and maybe see if I can’t find the floor in a couple of spots. If I get real ambitious, I may just try to find the top of a work bench too.
I dunno, I ain’t promising anything.
Either way, I ain’t going to work so that suits me just fine.
A little R&R is in order and I have low expectations.
Y’all have a nice day now and thanks for stopping by.
