Call Me Goofy

>> Thursday, January 31, 2008

Either I slept the wrong way, stared at my computer too long, or kicked a puppy in a former life, because today my upper back and neck hurts like crazy.

Tonight I asked Michael to apply one of those medicated heating patches to my back. I must have missed the part on the package that said it’s like putting a wet rag in the snow and then slapping it onto your skin, because as soon as he applied it, I emitted a “Goofy Holler” which I’m sure the neighbors heard.

(In case you’re unfamiliar with the Goofy Holler, also known as the “Wilhelm Scream”, check it out on YouTube. )

Anyhoo, the good news is that the patch is no longer cold. The bad news is that it feels like someone took a wire brush to my spine and then poured jalapeno juice all over it. The overall affect is somewhat like rubbing sand in your eyes to divert attention from the pain in your shin after running into the coffee table -- it works, but not really.
