I did manage to get some rest yesterday and, after an early night, woke up feeling better than I have the past few days. For some reason, since Monday I have had this edgy feeling (a bit like restless legs but all over) and I’m not really sure what is causing it. The steroid injections I had before New York are also starting to wear off and so I can feel the familiar tightness returning to my joints; mainly my right knee and hip. I look a sight trying to get out of the car I can tell you.
But I needed to forget all that because I had a fun-filled day ahead; firstly, watching my local football team lose once again (booo!) and then an evening watching the comedian Peter Kay. They do say that laughter is the best medicine and I believe there is a lot of truth to that; I love having a good giggle at a funny film or comedy show and tonight was no exception.
I particularly liked his take on doctors’ receptionists and how they (many of them at least) stand between the patient and doctor like guard dogs, determining who does or doesn’t get to see them as if they are qualified in making medical decisions. He also joked about not being surprised so many people turn to the internet instead, googling their symptoms and self-diagnosing, when it takes a month to get an doctor’s appointment. He’s obviously been doing his research!
Best of all though, were his misheard lyrics: KD Lang singing about ‘arseholes’ and Michael Jackson claiming ‘your burgers are the best’. It reminded me how for months I thought Lady Ga Ga was singing about ‘my little bedroom man’. I’ll let you work that one out!
Great night, only problem is my sides are aching now 😛
