Misfortune stalks me. You doubt me?

Today, at lunch, instead of going out with my colleagues, I went to test drive a used car.

Halfway through the test drive...it broke down. The guy the dealership sent to get us, got in a car accident on the way, so they had to send another guy. So a quick test drive turned into an hour and a half ordeal.

Desperate for something to eat, really, really fast, because I have a deadline to meet today, I go through a drive-through. I decide that today, dammit, I deserve fries. I forget to look carefully at the fries when I eat them, and manage to bite into the salt packet. I, of course, in a fit of frugality, passed on the combo with soda, as I would just get a drink when I got back to the office.

Those back spasms that I have carefully been holding at bay with judicious amounts of muscle relaxants, stretching and meditation...they have given my precautions a big giant "F-YOU, I'M AN ANTEATER!" Go ahead, google it -- without the edit; it's one of my favorite pictures of ALL TIME. Because I love anteaters. And adore the attitude. From an anteater. Plus, no one has made a "F-YOU, I'm crippling back spasms!" poster.

An instant on the lips, an eternity on the internet.

So, google, ho! I go and find the page with all the silly anteater pics on it. That one with baby anteater with the caption, "Pleased to meet you..." is too f-ing cute. Beats a lot of those cat and dog pics.

Sorry about the back spasms. Have you tried big doses of magnesium citrate? My favorite is the Peter Gillham "Natural Calm." The plain you probably wouldn't like but the lemon flavor is not bad. You might need to take a lot of it at this point. Poor you.
