When Life Adjusts the Schedule.

Pirate Bandages

Yesterday morning I went to the dermatologist so he could carve off what is probably a skin cancer and zing other portions of my head with blasts of dry ice. I now have a round bandage in the center of my forehead and am glad no workshops are scheduled for this week. 

But at least it wasn't a pirate bandage.*

Then I went home where, feeling cocky because of major progress with a bad back, I boldly bent over to pick up something, only to be quickly reminded that the back has a schedule of its own. 

The rest of the day was spent doing Herman Munster imitations.

Minor salves are now abandoned. It is time for the Sloan's Liniment; a.k.a. The Nuclear Option.

*On second thought, that would have been amusing.

Wow. Here’s to a quick mending and wind at your back.

Thanks. I am taking nothing for granted today.
