Lots to do but I need a minute to decompress. So, after a talk with my Pops last night it would seem all but confirmed that I have broken my butt. No lie, the tiny, most posterior (my apologies for saying anterior first. my butt hurts), barely bone tip of my coccyx is likely chipped or cracked. I know this because the pain, while subsiding day by day, has obviously continued on longer than a bruise. Pops broke his playing football and he’s pretty sure, based on my description, that this is what I’ve done. Also, I’m pretty familiar with what fractures feel like — one wrist, twice, the other, once; a toe; my left foot twice; a few fingers here and there over the years — so, I’ve really no doubt. And, after some research, the only treatments are pain relievers and time. (Advil, you are a kind and dear friend to me.) And not sitting in a certain way too long cause ooooowwwww…… My poor little prehensile tail. Oh dance, if I didn’t love you so much I would hate you for the pain you cause me. But I could never hate you. Because the joy you bring me wipes it all away. But sometimes I get mad at you. True story.
Anyway, because I’m not a lover of milk — it’s tolerable with chocolate mixed in or as an addition to my coffee but beyond that, ick — my mom has always pressured me about calcium supplements. Seriously, beginning when I was like six or seven. And, of course, I have always rebelled. Mom, I got my Viactiv out today and I feel geriatric as all get out but I’m on it. God forbid I end up with a hump back due to osteoporosis. I love you mom and I know you meant well but that has freaked me out for years thanks to your graphic description of it as a possible fate.
A friend of mine just told me via chat she watched the entire royal wedding and teared up. She said it was a low moment and one we needed to keep between us in our circle of trust. So, I’m putting it here. Also, AWE.SOME. (h/t Ace of Spades)
Pretty sure I’ll be enjoying both of these at some point. James McAvoy, we all have our Magneto.:
Anyway, because my sister Lou mentioned driving around Atlanta listening to this music the other day on Facebook, I decided to pull out my disc and digitize. It’s wonderful to run to. Happy Friday all. Have a lovely weekend.
