i pulled my back somehow last saturday. i'm convinced it has something to do with the mattress i was sleeping on, or that i am somehow actually physically active in my sleep, because god knows that i don't do ANYTHING in my waking hours that would hurt my body. except slouch at my desk chair. or slouch at the bar stool. or slouch in front of the TV (speaking of TV, rip vmars).
i've pulled my back before - i have bad joints in general so i'm really used to being completely uncomfortable constantly and in pain, i'm thoroughly convinced i actually have junior arthritis - but this has lasted almost a week and is really bad. in fact, i can't bend over, whatsoever, and bending over, it turns out, is an integral part of living (no dirty jokes, please).
put shoes on? can't do it. pick up shampoo in shower? nope. dropped a pencil on the floor? i'll stare at it, forlornly, for five minutes, till somebody else sighs exasperatedly and gets it for me. it's a pain! in the back! ha ha! HOW THE FUCK DO I MAKE IT STOP? am i going to have to go the ryan avent route and eventually get steroids shot into my spine or eyeball or something?
in other completely not related news, i meant to mention this in the ratson's post down below, but the night we were there was the regular stetson's trivia night, and i'm telling all y'all that used to do trivia at fado's: we would CLEAN UP. two example questions that i heard, i'm not lying at all:
"are happily and easily adverbs? true or false?"
"if you mix equal amounts of red and blue paint, what color do you get?"
