Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Remember that sequence in Dog Day Afternoon when you thought Al Pacino's character was shouting Attica?
He's really shouting SCIATICA. He gets the crowd all worked up because they've had enough of that certain pain that burns and stabs its way around the right hip and lower back.
Yes, it's sciatica, and that's what's causing my pain. I had it once before, about 15 years ago. It doesn't hurt as much as it did last week, but it isn't gone.
At least I can sit down now and bend over without crying out in pain. I need to do everything in slow motion.
But I'll leave you today with The Far Side because laughing is much better than crying.
Infinities of love,
