Checking in

I always feel like a slacker when I go a day without posting. I’ve been dealing with a migraine all day and only want to be in bed. In a dark room. With no dogs barking.

However, I did see a couple of things in my book of literary days that amused me. The first was that Victor Hugo married on October 14, 1822, and at the wedding breakfast, his older brother suddenly went insane. A pre-television sitcom!

Also on this date, Dorothy Parker, Robert Sherwood, and Peter Benchley, who’d been forbidden by Vanity Fair to discuss their pay rates, wore signs around their necks that revealed their salaries.

Finally, during a migraine dream, I learned that a Very Famous Country Star is gay. The problem is, I don’t know very many country stars, and this one’s identity kept changing in the dream. So I’m not really sure who he was. And I don’t out people, anyway. Especially when I’ve only dreamed they’re gay. But it was fun eavesdropping on his phone conversation with his wife-in-name-only. This is what good drugs’ll do for my dreams.

    1. I either take Maximum Strength Midol, or depending on which doctor I’ve seen, vicodin, tylenol 3, or morphine. None of those gets rid of the headache. All of them allow me to sleep my way through the headache, which is all I ask.

    Oh, no! I feel bad you’re having one of your bad migraine days. It looks like we synched up, since I’ve had a horrible headache all day. I finally had to lie down to sleep it off.

    1. Sleeping is really all I can do for it. The pain meds don’t really make the pain go away. They just knock me out. I hope you’re feeling much better!

      1. Yeah, I’m okay now, thanks. I’m glad you’re doing better too. 🙂

        Sometimes a headache will go away if I take some Excederin. However, if it’s a bad one, all I can do it just go to bed. I realized after seeing a segment on TV that I might suffer from mild migraines from time to time.

    1. Yeah, but you work a job in a building with a boss and stuff, plus you do a gazillion social things. This IS part of my job, and it’s weird to call in sick to myself.
