Oh crap, double crap...

My right shoulder hurts bad and my right bicep is numb... I hope falling off my bike on Friday hasn't caused some physical injury that is only now surfacing... Damn, I want some Star Wars Stormtrooper armor!

Fuckin' gravity... fuckin' body growing old....

ah.... just fuck....

And I have to work tomorrow!

I would have my neck checked out by a good chiropractor.

I was having this same conversation with a friend the other day, we figured there HAS to be some sort of curve to this "pain as we age" crap...otherwise none of us could get out of bed by the time we're 60??

It goes in cycles for me. Not too bad lately but a couple of months ago I was like one giant body ache.
A friend of mine turned 55 a couple of years ago. I asked him how it felt to be that old. "Fifty-five sucked as a speed limit and it sucks as an age."

I'm just 21, and I have a bad right shoulder, a bad right knee, a bad left knee, poor eyesight, exercise-induced asthma, and I've had 8 concussions (explains a lot, doesn't it?). I am SO totally fucked when I get old like all of you...

That's why you see all the old-timers on the barstools....

Darling, 8 concussions? That's a lot of gettin' beat up. Did you play football?

Jeezum, Linzi!... I've only had one concussion, and look what it did to me! ...

I've been extraordinarily lucky... I have some minor rotator cuff problems in my left shoulder from a bicycle spill when I was 12, but I have God's Own Knees... I can still run 10 miles if I get into shape again [I was up to 9 a day just two years ago]... I do have a numb left foot from a muscle tear under my left glute from a Bowflex debacle a couple of years back [That's what stopped my running], but it doesn't really affect me anymore... Been doing hour walks recently, and I quit cigs again a few weeks ago... Baldy's recent triumph has inspired me... Don't want to do an Iron Man, but I'd like to complete a second Marathon before I turn 50...

With a record like that at age 21, I'd be happy if I just got to grow old - or get life insurance...

I'm thinking that someone needs to work on their self preservation skills. You know the stuff they make the airplane "black boxes" out of? Wear it

Bad right shoulder - rowing, 9th grade. Bad right knee - 9 years of soccer. Bad left knee - motorcycle crash. 8 concussions - 2 from basketball, 1 from football, 1 from falling out of a treehouse, 1 from racquetball (how sad is that?), 1 from surfing, 1 really, really bad ski accident, and 1 from a motorcycle crash.

Note to self: Don't play basketball, football, or racquetball, don't climb trees, ski, or ride with Linzi ...
