Sometimes it’s hard being a nerd. As I tried to understand the future of American heathcare for a person such as myself with mounting “pre-existing conditions” as it is being proposed by the monsters in the Republican Party my Twitter feed was inundated with “May The Fourh” tweets.
Cinc-Ow de Mayo
Much like I did when I suffered from all of my many past maladies and injuries, I look forward to the day when I can stop blogging about my pain from my bicycle fall nearly one month ago. One month and still partially disabled. Wow. The bag of meat that we call our “body” is so fragile.
At week’s start I was hoping that this would be “the week” that put me right again. This morning I screamed in agony as I lifted my left leg while trying to put on my underpants. Clearly my body is incapable of healing itself this time, and I will keep considering my options for getting help.
In an attempt to try and return some “normalcy” to my life I will be practicing my second Opposite Day today by going to an Irish bar on Cinco de Mayo. The bar chosen is Ri Ra in midtown, no to be confused with the noodle restaurant Ra not more than a few blocks away, which is conveniently a mere few blocks hobble from “XYZ Corp” headquarters. I know my friend Hank will be joining me, and our friend Bill had talked a out taking MARTA down from Brookhaven. With MARTA’s station-closing fire yesterday I’ll have to see if Bill makes it down.
Yesterday MARTA had a fire, and there was a water-main break that has shutdown Roswell Road in Sandy Springs. What next? The Atlanta Metro area is literally falling apart…
Die Sechste Und Siebste Von März
If I can figure out how to get around without pain I have a busy weekend ahead of me.
Along with much-needed house cleaning and a restarting of my house purging project tomorrow I will be headed to Colony Square for the “Europe Days” activity being out on in part by the Goethe Zentrum. I may get in a trip to the High Museum as well.
Speaking of the High… Once I am capable of pain-free ambling again I want to work in routine trips to the museum since “XYZ Corp” is located so closely to it.
On Sunday I will have to figure out a way to get my lawnmower to the front of the house in order to give the yard its first mow of 2017. I may have to think about this today and build in a trip to Lowes tomorrow to get something out of which I can fashion a ramp that will defeat the three-foot elevation gain from back to front. I don’t know if you recall, but this impediment was why I was so thrilled to be able to single-handedly move a bulky bookcase from the basement to the curb no more than two months ago. I even blogged about how I was going to miss having this physical ability some day, I just never realized how quickly some day would arrive.
May the Fifth be with you. Have a great weekend as well.
