If you care to look back you can read about last Sunday morning when my coffee went down the wrong way and the exhuberant coughing caused my chair to back up just far enough for me to miss it coming down and fall on my ribs on one of the metal legs.
I have been in pain all week. I thought I was getting a little better each day.
I hadn't been out all week because I was nursing the pain.
Yesterday, my dad asked me if I wanted to go for a drive along the beach and I took him up on it.
On the drive home, he said he wanted to stop someplace for bananas and I thought I might as well go in a get a few things.
I picked up a few things in the produce section and just as I was moving into the meats section, my foot hit the only wet spot in the whole store and my right leg went racing ahead of my body leaving me doing the splits on the polished concrete floor.
A huge goose egg immediately sprung out of my shin which had slammed into the rail across the bottom of the cart.
So, I thought. ok, **** happens. I got a free goose egg and I didn't knock my teeth out.
Last night the pain from trying to catch myself as I was going down with that bad shoulder? Well it "flared up" and I could hardly sleep.
And the plan is..............not smoking
Stuff happens and smoking won't fix it. Once you internalize that, you're good. Smoking is never my choice.
Don't let smoking be your "go to". There's nobody home.
There is some good: I got up real early and burned a dvd of three of my songs to submit to "The Voice."
Made a label. Printed up my musical history and got it mailed. It wasn't perfect but anyone in the business will look beyond the technical shortcomings and hear the voice. (I hope. LOL)
What's a 65 year old man going to be doing on a TV show? Singing I hope.
