Me: OK back ache, enough is enough. I need to fix the roof before the rains come! Back Ache: Groan! Me: It will be OK, I have to start, I have been procrastinating for several months. You know, one poor excuse after the other? Back Ache: Can’t you hire someone? Me: I don’t trust anybody. Back Ache: Why? Me: I am an engineer type, I get extreme satisfaction out of doing the job right the first time, I am retired have plenty of time, and with the money I save I can buy a new windsurfing sail. Back Ache: That’s not totally true, You have enough money to do both. Me: Yes, I am lying to myself. TMSers do this all the time, you see I am also a frugal fart as well. Back Ache: I am not feeling very well right now. Me: That’s my fault, I have not exercised you recently. Back Ache: I know, I know, you fractured your sacrum, had a cold, and could not exercise in smoky California. My cousin Charlie, your Neck Ache has really been really kicking up, we have been working together to make you really miserable. Me: Well I am better now, I’ll go easy on you, if you feel bad I’ll give you a yoga pull. Back Ache: That’s not good enough, can I have a heating pad and Tylenol PM as well? Me: No! The yoga pull is just to remind me. Back Ache: Remind you of what? Me: To slow down, take a break, think! Back Ache: A reminder! Is that all I mean to you. Me: Yup.
