Like a Thousand Burrowing Shrews
My brain-stem hurts. All week I’ve been metabolizing the boss, the deadlines, the incessantly ringing phones, and the mountains of shit into tightening knots in my back and shoulders. That tension has slowly climbed up my vertebrae and now the steely-grip is pressing my brain against the top of my skull. The pain isn’t blinding or nauseating, just dull and persistent, so it’s not a migraine, which actually kind of frustrates me. If it were, I could just write it off and dope-up, but as it is I have to accept that it is stress (and therefore work) related (tough for me because I pride myself on being fluid and laid-back.) But there is good news. Today is Thursday, which means only 9 more hours until the (blessedly long) weekend. I have a bottle of gin and a fresh legal pad just waiting for the hours and hours of freedom that lays just over my horizon. Jules has had her own albatross this past week, in the form of nine-straight days in the café trenches. So she is looking forward to the pinko holiday even more than I am (and deserves it WAY more than I do, I might add.)
