I realize I haven’t been posting much lately. It’s mostly because I’ve been working a new job. It’s been a while since I worked a job that had me on my feet, and dam I am in pain. Truthfully I think I slipped a disc a few years ago working at a job. I’ve had doctors look at it, but never gotten a MRI on it. Which I really should have back when I had coverage. It’s a pain in the small of my back which feels like a tightening pain, and also causes my left leg a lot of weakness. Mostly centered around the top of my leg right where it starts.
So pretty much as soon as I get home, I force myself to go get some drugs and I have to lay perfectly in order not to be in pain. So writing isn’t high on my list of things to do. I realize it seems kind of silly, because it’s rather easy to type everything out. But all I would think of over and over is “Pain, Pain, Pain, Pain” and you can see how this would go. I just get home and need to unwind.
It also reminds me of when I was working and living in Brick NJ. I was working in a junkyard breaking my back day in and day out for shit pay. My ex would spend all my money and she didn’t work. When I’d get home I’d want nothing more then to just relax. I got to the point where I would take as much time untying and getting my boots off as possible. At one point I realized that it was taking me a half hour to get off my boots just so I’d have a few moments of peace. The amazing thing is that she’s still a complete child today. Doesn’t work, has no future, and she’s just looking to get some dumb guy to let her be a housewife. I was an idiot when I was younger.
So I’m trying to write up more posts in one sitting and schedule them to run during the week. I got a couple written today. Also hopefully in time and with drugs I can not be totally dead the second I walk into my house. I really can’t explain it, but I wish I could explain it better and this didn’t come off like me bitching. Which it probably does. Oh well, such is life and the internet.
Talking about my crazy Ex from Brick reminded me of a story from that time. She used to do stuff on Wednesday because I got paid on Friday and could put money in her account before the check cleared. Well one time she told me she went to the doctors, and I deposited the money for her and everything no problem. So Saturday comes along and we’re out driving, I decide to ask her which doctor she went to see. She stutters before telling me she went to see “Dr Staples”… Because she actually spent the money at Staples and had forgotten her story.
Even more amazing is that I was apparently wrong. She’s a department manager at Wal-Mart now. I can not imagine the hell that the people working under her are going through day in and day out. Who would ever put her in any sort of management position is beyond me. Hell, I’ve busted my ass at some places and had bosses who loved me and I still never had any sort of promotion. Another reason why Wal-Mart is awful.
So to pad this out a little more, I went to a Chinese buffet the other night with a friend. I was looking at their chicken and saw something that caught my interest, “Hong Kong Chicken”. It looked like regular chinese fried chicken with a coating of something on it. When I brought it back to the table my friend mentioned that “It looks like boneless wing sauce”. So I had some and that’s exactly what it was. With all the different kinds of fried chicken you can make at a chinese place, I will never understand why they bothered to coat it in generic boneless wing sauce.
