Ouchie!

I mentioned on Friday that I hurt my back at work but, being a brave and uncomplaining soul, haven't mentioned it since.

Well - on Saturday morning it was difficult getting out of bed and I was well pissed off about it. But after a few co-codamol, a 40 minute walk and a hot bath I was reasonably fine.

Yesterday it seemed to have stiffened up again but after the painkiller, walk and bath treatment it was grand by last night and I was all set for work today.

This morning it was great - hardly a twinge and I set off for work. Maybe a little bit sore getting out of the car but nothing much - then...

Maybe it was a bit of an atmosphere I sensed, maybe it was the cold, maybe apprehension that the work expected of me was physical but whatever, the next thing my back went into a sort of spasm. The worst pain yet. I sent myself home.

So here I am. Sore to sit down, sore to stand and sore to walk. I'm dosed to the eyeballs with painkillers and I've got a hottie stuffed down the back of my trousers. As if my arse wasn't big enough.

Here, get Minnie Driver out from your slacks woman.

Nelly said...

Minnie Driver? You like her?

Beowulf said...

She's a hottie for sure.

ed said...

Minnie Driver? Yer one who once ate a whole coathanger, and suffered facial disfigurement from it?

Sir: you shoulda gone to Specsavers.

Nelly said...

I didn't like to say ... but she does have a look of a lunching hamster.

Sandra said...

Well, I'm sorry to hear that your back is sore, even if no-one else cares.

Nelly said...

All's in men's heads is..?

Minnie Driver wouldn't be my first choice of a hottie but I think it's good that Beowulf thinks she is. It means there's hope for us all.

Poor moms. Hope your back feels better soon.

Keep takin' the durgs Nelly. Back pain is no laughing matter.

Beowulf said...

Alright then, let's hear who y'all think is a hottie then if you're so sure you know so much!

Rolpol said...

Most hotties I can think of would do little or no good for back pain. However, as I am currently struck down with Man Flu, I would plump for Mary-Louise Parker in a nurse's uniform.

Hope the pain recedes soon, Nelly

ed said...

Well, somewhat like Minnie Driver, but actually fit, and can act a whole hell of a lot better: Ms Rachel Weiss.

Although I'd quite happily settle for Mary Louise Parker.

Mr Bolan said...

Ms Weiss. Mmmmm.

Youse all forget, though, that Mr Wulg and Ms Driver have a _history_.

Nelly said...

Tell us more Mr Bolan.

Beowulf said...

Now, now. All that can be said of our affair was published in the national press at the time. It's a matter of public record and should someone want to drag all that up and reopen that wound in my lupine heart then so be it.

Ed - Rachel may be good looking but she doesn't have Minnie's force of personality.

Nelly said...

Was it when she was doing Circle of Friends? Was that shot on the Oul' Sod?
