In a different life, I worked in Tech Support. My friends set up a site called Tech Hell where we all posted sad and depraved stories of calls we had to answer. Some of them have been published in a book called Techmares. One of my stories (maybe more than one) is featured in Chapter 3. How cool is that?
And on the “why haven’t you been posting” front, I pulled a bunch of muscles in my neck this weekend carrying Max around Target (he’s big now). He was leaning over the whole time forcing my head forward at an odd angle. It didn’t hurt at the time, but as soon as I got him down, I couldn’t move my head back to its normal resting location. I could only turn maybe 15 – 20 degrees either left or right, and was in a great deal of pain. So, I spent all weekend on the couch with heating pads around my body. I went to the chiropractor yesterday morning and found I’d only been making it worse with heat. So, after much pain and contortions over two days, I’m covered in ice packs. But, I can turn my head almost all the way; I can type; the pain is gone from my right side and all that’s left to fix is my left side.
So, that’s why I was gone. Good excuse, huh?
