Wow! I can’t tell you how nice it is to be home, back in a place with a backyard, proper t.v., window blinds, and actual dresser with drawers for storing my clothes!
Nice while it lasts.
I got in a little after 3 pm today and the first thing I did (after greeting Akemi and the dogs of course) was to head over the nearby medical center and get that x-ray. For almost two weeks now, I’ve been suffering from what I’d describe as “a sore right lung”. Every time I take a deep breath, it triggers a dull ache in the region. On my first visit to the doctor, he poked, prodded, listened to my lungs, then sent me for a blood test that came back all good. He suspected it was a muscular issue. On my next visit to another doctor, there was more poking and prodding and listening to my lungs. He also suspected a muscular issue – but sent me for an x-ray, just to be sure. If I’d just gone on Monday, I’d already have my answer by now but, because I was feeling a little better, I elected to put it off. Thus, I get to stew all long weekend.
I love the idea of it being muscular. Only problem is, I can’t recall doing anything that could have caused the problem. “Oh, at our age, you don’t need to do anything anymore,”my writing partner, Paul, informed me. “Stepping out of the shower, sitting up, just turning your head – crack – that’s it.”
Really? Can anyone confirm this through amusing anecdotal evidence?
Tomorrow, I commence my goodbye tour of my favorite Vancouver bookshops: The Comic Shop, The Book Warehouse, White Dwarf Books – and continue work on Episode 204. That script aint gonna write it self. Trust me, I know. I left my laptop out two nights in a row with a dish of cookies for the script fairies only to discover the cookies gone the following mornings but absolutely no work completed on my script. Has this ever happened to you?
