So, I’m sat here at the Doctor’s office (for an appointment that was 10 minutes ago) because of something so debilitating I had to take the day off work.
I know what you’re thinking “Hey, Luke! You’re still young and carefree, right? I bet you’re just hungover.”
“Extreme Sport Wipeout?”
“Second degree burns from running into a burning building to save a kitten and just generally be a hero?”
I like you think that highly of me, but no. I’m here at the Doctor’s office because…i threw my back out.
That’s it, I’m an old man! I didn’t even throw my back out doing something awesome like lifting weights or rescuing kittens. I did it walking to the washing machine. Not putting things in it, not bending over to adjust the dials, not picking up the basket, just walking across to the washing machine.
Consequently, if I want to see anything to my left or my right I have to turn my whole body in that direction! Trying to get comfy on these waiting room chairs is also pretty damn painful!!
Oh, and my service provider’s data just went down for everyone on their network as well, so whilst I may have full signal I can’t get onto anything more than a google search or an email.
Fortunately, I’m writing this on the app and it’ll post when it’s up and running again. Which is disappointing as I was halfway through an episode of Community, which is my new comedy binge. My drama binge at the moment is The Walking Dead, before last week I’d only seen up to the mid-season finale of season 4, now I’ve rematched every episode and I’m about to start season six.
I’m using both Netflix and Amazon Prime at the moment and I think I’ll make a blog post of the two and their pros and cons of both, you know, for the real geeky of you that maybe care.
But in the meantime I’m just going to keep growing old and injuring myself by walking.
My appointment was 30 minutes ago.
I’ve been given a few anti-inflammatories and sent on my way. Also told to stretch it out.
No song yet because I have no internet to get the YouTube link. But I am listening to ‘Little Moon’ by First Aid Kit.
