A Dispatch From Dullsville

When I was a kid and I'd complain to my mom that I was bored, she'd tell me that only boring people get bored.  Exciting, vibrant, intelligent and wonderful people could always think of something to do.  Well, after two weeks of "taking it easy" for my stupid hip injury, I am ready to confess that I am a boring person.  Tediously, mind-numbingly boring.  I can barely stand to look at myself in the mirror, I'm so boring.  If this keeps up, I might start talking to the walls, I'm so boring.



I think the two pictures above nicely show the excitement that's been happening around here.

I am the type of person who thinks that when a doctor says I will be better in four days, he really means two.  Because of this, I have three times now gone to Target and walked around and ended up in agonizing pain after declaring myself "all better."  My mother has now confined me to the house for another week, mostly because I'm sure she's sick of the phone calls where I'm absolutely shocked I am still in pain after walking a half a block to Walgreens and browsing for half an hour.  

I'm willing to admit that the doctors are right and this stupid thing will take another week to heal.  Please prepare yourself for more exciting updates.

  1. Is it wrong that your pictures look HEAVENLY to me? (I'm running around ALL THE TIME.) I'm sorry you're temporarily stranded, though! :)

  2. Given my feelings regarding DC, I'd actually be willing to print that first photo on archival paper (whatever that might be) and frame it. I'd have a little title plaque made, too. It would say something like "Ode to Survival."

    For God's sake: PAY ATTENTION to the doctors. Marmaduke would, you know.
