What is up with the damn weather!? This past weekend in the Evergreen State it was in the 90s!* I know it’s August thank you very much. But it’s Washington for heaven’s sake – it’s supposed to rain here! Yeah, and then we’d have had sauna conditions so I guess it’s a good thing it stayed dry. Well, the weather stayed dry. Not me damn it. I kept pouring down the water and it kept seeping out of my pores. Okay, pouring out of my pores!
Seriously, Saturday was so hot I barely moved till the sun went down. Plus it was my first day without anti-inflammatory assistance so my knee was complaining.
“You! You up there … where’s my pain meds?”
“Um.” Am I not eloquent? In my defense I’ve never had a conversation with my knee before. It was a little unsettling.
“Helloooo? You awake? Get me some pain medication!”
“Uh, I already took the Tylenol.”
“Tylenol is a joke! Get me some Advil, stat!”
“Sorry about that. Doctor’s orders. We can’t have any more anti-inflammatories until after the surgery Thursday.”
“Wha?!?!! Get that effin’ doctor on the phone! I have some choice words for him!”
“Dr. W isn’t in the office on Saturday.”
It went downhill after that.
*Look, I’m aware the East coast’s heat wave had much higher temperatures and I’m not trying to say we have it bad here compared to them. I’m trying to say it’s hella hot here and I’m just not used to it! So lighten up.
