My back is acting up and I’ve had to get Mr. Walking Cane(TM) out of the trunk. I’m not in excruciating pain, but I can’t stand fully upright currently without using my cane and I’ve already called Doc Chiro about dropping in a couple days early so he can try and work some magic. Fortunately I have tomorrow off due to the election. Unfortunately I’m scheduled to spend part of it sitting in a dentist’s chair getting work down on my next tooth cap.
The worst of it, however, is hobbling around work having to explain to every single person what’s wrong with me. For newer building residents I can understand this, but for folks who have been here longer than I have and who already know that I have a back problem and have seen me do my Old Man Mr. Tibbs(TM) imitation at least twice before it’s somewhat irritating having to explain it all again. So I’ve resorted to explaining that I’ve got the cane to whack anyone who comes to me with a stupid computer question. Oh yeah, what did you want to see me about again?
