Shattered glass

September 2, 2018 - 10:29 -- Admin

I was standing next to a ledge when the small girl's hand pushed it—she couldn't see it; she was too low down. I watched the glass vanish from view, thought "shit" and had a moment to brace. It smashed into a seeming thousand shards of a thousand yet more shards each with a ring that rippled through me.I held firm; I was not shaken.

Naked and nails

September 1, 2018 - 11:00 -- Admin

I was transitioning between the shower and study naked when thboy opened the sliding door. I turned, deeply ashamed, at my hideous body.I do not feel great naked; I do not look good naked. If a casting director was looking for the main role for their production "The Toad King" and I stepped into the room they'd shout "CALL OFF THE HUNT! WE HAVE OUR TOAD KING!"I don't feel as bad wearing a shirt and undies; or wearing PJ pants and no shirt.

Lost a tooth chunk

August 28, 2018 - 14:25 -- Admin

It fell out as I ate a Sundae. I thought it was from my meal the saw it was a tooth piece and frantically tongued about until I found where it once was. I put the shard on a chopping board then lost it when I picked up the board and it rattled off it to the counter and off that to under the fridge.I'd just come back from a psych where I discussed early onset of aging on wonky joints only for a chunk of tooth just fall out of me when I got home like in a fucked comedy movie. Seriously.

Took his sword off him

August 27, 2018 - 15:43 -- Admin

I'm playing Talisman on the tablet and my Sorceress was attacked by the Knight---who begins the game with armour and a sword.I won the battle and took his sword off him.His alignment is good and I am evil. Yet I did nothing to bring on that aggro. It is a nice sword though. He's lost some fights and is two lives from death. Let's see what I to make that happen.

Knee ache

August 27, 2018 - 14:55 -- Admin

The lake ride I did was too much after too long away from daily exercise biking. My left knee is screaming at me for doing something it used to do an hour a day no worries. I need to ease back in then lift back up. I'm older and can't do what limited things I could do as well I did them—my joints are failing early because they were never formed correctly. To know and experience early degradation of your body is fucked.

Skull hiss

August 27, 2018 - 08:52 -- Admin

Gas just crackled out the base of my skull; I heard it and felt it. There's no implants, it's just my dodgy-as-fuck un-turned body venting.As I rode back from the lake yesterday my knees hurt and the already replaced hip ached.

Fifteen hours

August 24, 2018 - 23:44 -- Admin

I haven't done a 15 hour day in seeming forever but I got to see things happen and chat with great peeps. A grueler but a grinner.I even had an outside mission on a stunning day and got assisted at the back of a queue by a roving customer officer.  There were flashbacks to the shit but each time they came they ebbed off because what I was doing made it all worth it.I don't have self doubt; I am one with myself. How lucky am I to obtain self worth?Also there was a change of Prime Minister.

Things that hurt

August 23, 2018 - 17:22 -- Admin

Me; like, all the time.A pebble in my shoe when running for a bus; yes, I ran—on this body. The pebble entered as I dashed across gravel.I missed the bus.Rimming my belly button on the edge of a chair. Loud noises like low flying aircraft, a cutlery rattle-drop or a scooter dropped within a bus. Memories, the having thereof, not the song; otherwise that would be "Memories" and how could that hurt you?
