What to Do?
Pull Up Your Goddamn Pants: Guest Edition

So... Yeah, Hi!

Okay, okay! I'm going to the reunion. Joe's going too, God bless him! Thanks for the encouragement -- it should be a hoot. I hope I'll recognize some folks! Maybe I'll drag out my old eighth grade class graduation photo and bone up on the names and faces. Do you think they've changed much in 45 years? I know I have. Well, except for my porcelain complexion and radiant smile.

Last weekend we ran down to Ocean City for the weekend and hosted some very dear old friends. We had a great time, just sittin' and yakkin' and eatin' and drinkin'. The water was wonderful and I spent a lovely afternoon floating over the waves. Saturday evening the lovely and talented Deb and Beth stopped by for a beverage and a nosh, so the joint was a veritable beehive of activity! SonnyeBoy spent a lot of time with us too, so I got to love him up good.

Today I finally threw in the towel and called the doctor about my aching neck. The left side of it has been stiff and sore for over a month. I can't tell if it's a sore muscle, a pinched nerve, or something way more horrible like mocus in the crud. ("Mocus in the crud" is a fictional disease my pop was fond of diagnosing.) I am finally sick of having (not being) a pain in the neck! The doc prescribed Naprosyn, Flexiril, and hot compresses. Alas, I'll have to wait to pick up the meds, but I'll start the compresses tonight.

In fact, I think it's time for supper, accompanied by a Dark and Stormy with a hot compress chaser.
