Feelin' All Percy
Yeah, I had a bit of a sinus infection. It has been going on for well over a month, but today I actually was tearing up from my left eye it hurt so bad. I could not look at light and my wife continued to be supportive and try to understand the complexities of being a man by asking the important questions:
- Are you retarded?
- Why do you hate doctors?
- Do you think it is going to get better without you going in?
- Do you want paper or plastic?
Scratch the last one... I think that was the girl at the grocery store, but honestly, my head hurt so bad and I was in such a fog that it all ran together. I couldn't get in to my regular doctor until 2009, so it was off to urgent care. The Medical Assistant always comes and gets you in the waiting room then takes you through the door that keeps the riff-raff out and up to the scale... 260... geez I am fat. Then it is blood pressure... 114/78... maybe I am not that fat. A quick temperature... 99.0... slightly warmer than the weather at Brian Head this weekend. Then the big question:
What brought you in today?
Well, it is either a really bad sinus infection or a massive brain tumor. I figure either way, I probably get a couple of days off of work and some good pain killers. I think she appreciated my optimism. Turns out it is the former. So some steroids, some antibiotics, and some Percocet later and I am riding the narcotic wave of dizzy euphoria. What better way to enjoy the effects of pain killers? Staying up until 3:00 AM watching Arrested Development Season 2 and blogging.

Sorry to hear about your ailment. But glad to hear you've got more time for Arrested Development. I missed it while it was on TV, and recently borrowed the dvd's from a friend. Wow, that show is funny. I'm an addict at the moment, watching 1-2 episodes a day. Can't believe something as good as this was canceled.
