Pardon me while I whine.
It seems the "ruin my weekend" fairies are at it again. Last weekend I spent laid up on the couch with a pinched nerve in my back. Not sure how I did it but there I lay. I ended up taking Monday and Tuesday off work since I couldn't stand up straight until sometime mid-afternoon Tuesday. The only thing I achieved during my 4 days on the couch was an unhealthy addiction to "Real Housewives~of~Atlanta". The TV choices were slim and Brav0 had a marathon going.... what can I say? LOL!
Well, Saturday morning I woke up with a throat so swollen that my uvula was laying on my tongue. And yes... I had to look up the word for that little thing that hangs down between your tonsils.It's not a pleasant feeling. I've had to fight the urge to constantly gag over it. Lovely, no? Do you know that when I g0ogled for an image of "uvula" I found that there are people in the world who actually pierce theirs? Seriously. G0ogle it for yourself. I can't even imagine how a person could think a piece of metal constantly tickling the back of their throat sounds like a good idea. WTF?
I was awakened several times last night probably with some type of "my uvula is choking me" sleep apnea thing. And every time I woke up I realized that the mere act of swallowing my own saliva felt like someone had poured broken glass down my throat. Niiii-ce.
So yeah... the last 2 weekends have pretty much sucked for me. But it could always be worse, right? Not that I'm tempting fate or anything. Hopefully, things will be back to normal in a few days.
