Well, yesterday was sure tough. As I mentioned, my back went out which it does on occasion, though thankfully not often -- every few years or so. But this was one of the worst. Usually it just lays me up for a few hours, and Iie comfortably on the bed or floor until I get the All's Well signal. This time, even when lying down it was on-and-off excruciating and lasted probably 9-1/2 hours. Finally, by about six o'clock and I could tell things had eased up, and I was beginning to feel comfortable though sore. Happily, this is Bowl Season, so ESPN had three games back-to-back (no pun intended). So, I just lay on the floor in my living room for most of the day and watched football all day into the evening. I had my book with me, as well, and a phone and my notebook computer -- though I didn't feel much like writing, however I did check email occasionally.
But things are better this morning. Still a bit sore, but much better and mobile. It tightened up a little during the night, but that's gone. I don't know if this is insanely stupid (I know it's not the smartest thing to try...), but the Writers Guild is showing "The Wolf of Wall Street," and I plan to drive over to see the morning screening -- that's 2:45.
