I'm In No Shape For Drivin'

I think I obtained my first concussion today. It was a beautiful play in the end zone as I was attempting to catch the football. I watched in slow motion as it bounced around my fingers as I was falling backwards towards earth. Unfortunately, it was knocked out of my hands seconds before the THUD of my head hitting the cold hard field reverberated though my head like something that reverberates a lot.

I think I am doing fine, although for a while this afternoon life was a blur. Like, I know I had a conversation with a friend on the street, but I do not remember much of what was said or even if I made any sense. Dinner wasn't much better, as I do not think I was tracking with most of the conversation.

But I'm getting better. I think I'll go for a walk. I feel happy. I feel happy.

Song to go with this post: Coldplay - "A Rush of Blood to the Head"

You would have been a lot safer playing proper football, my friend. But you will insist on rejecting some good old colonial advice...

Oops! Is this your most commented upon post? The programme kept telling me that it couldn't process my comment, so I kept on trying.

I thought you were just really trying to make your point.

hey it's rare for you to make sense in conversations anyway so don't go blaming the concussion. After having been married for a five months and now going back to the bachelor lifestyle I have this to say. I dont know how I did it for so long. I need a wife, I need my wife. Tonight for dinner I had Pear Cider and pretzels and then for desert cookies and cream icecream followed by another pear cider and more pretzels.

Lay off the ciders my friend, it is causing you to double post comments.
