Today was the Big Anniversary for my friend. The actual party isn't until Saturday, but I like to celebrate things on the Day It Happened...I'm geeky like that :)
So all day long while I was doing my usual hamster dance I kept thinking about her and HOW to present her with the gift. As usual, the Universe created the PERFECT moment and we both had a much needed juncture of JOY. I loved seeing the graceful drape of the wave breaking over her shoulders and she was absolutely wonder struck. (Is that a word in English? I'm really really tired and my brain is thinking in several other languages....forgive me, please, my momentary lapses...)
After my usual morning chauffeuring I spent two hours with my friend the chiropractor. I have been having these insanely painful spasms in my upper thoracic area...(think sciatica only downside up). That nasty shooting nerve pain just would not go away, not with Yoga or deep breathing or any of my other pain control prestidigitation....RATS and other small rodents..I don't have TIME to take care of MYSELF...I'm too busy rescuing everybody else. (Confession is good for the soul....I am holding myself up as an example of what NOT to do.)
That voice on the airplane...the one that says "Put your own oxygen mask on FIRST before assisting those around you..." well, duh. "We know you have a choice when it comes to air travel..." Oh wait a minute...where was I? Nerve pain. Right.
So my sweet friend says to me, "How long has THIS been going on?" and I had to sheepishly admit ALMOST TWO WEEKS. I won't repeat what she said next. Pick your own expletive.
She adjusted me. Attitudinally and spinalwise. I'll bet you heard it two states away.
I showed her what I had been knitting for our other friend. She loved it. She wants one. I'm thinking the golden glitterspun is next...
Got to go do my ice therapy...ouch.
Auf wiedersehen, wunderkinder....
und if you want a Dr. Suess reference, my very favorite is:
"UNLESS, what's an UNLESS?"I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees....
