being sick is good for you!

December 15, 2010

Oh life, you’re so funny.  I can’t beLIEVE I didn’t trust you when you got me sick with fever and chills, and then followed up with headaches, no energy, and a hacking cough!  But you knew what you were doing, didn’t you?

This is the photo message I sent Kels the night I got violently ill while she was on call at the hospital. I was a poor sickie that missed and loved her a lot.

While I was sick and, for the most part, in bed all week, my little butt muscle was getting to rest.  No P90x workouts for me!  Then, Life,  just as you thought I might be getting better enough to start working out again, you delayed me a few extra days, just for good measure.  Well played!

(Value your pinkie fingers…  They are more important than you might think.)

Anyway, I see now that all this time of “rest” has been good for my overworked piriformis muscle, so… good timing, Life!  My physical therapist thanks you!

I’ll leave you with a slightly happier visual image, one that makes me smile every time I see it:

Yup, Kelsey had to write herself a note to remember her pants.  Sure, it was to remind her to get a second pair from the dryer for some important event, but I’ve kept it up because it conjures instead an image of a pantless wife, catching herself just in time on the way out the door.  It also reminds me of my brother, who has always considered pants ‘optional’.  Love you both!

  1. Pants. Are. Always. Optional.

    Unless you are welding. Then you pretty much need them.


  2. zeke, i would argue that pants are necessary when operating a deep-fryer, too, or else a very durable apron. thankfully, this is second-hand knowledge.


  3. Salute!
