Came home from Flood Stage last night feeling like a bus had backed up over me, and then gone forward over me, back and forth, a half-dozen times. Wound up hitting a rabbit in the road by my colleagues’ house as I came home because I was in so much pain. Feeling much better today, but last night I crawled into bed with headache, body aches, joint aches and general muscular weariness. Slept for nine hours through. Woke up this morning, took Clio to pee, fed her and ate an entire half of a cantaloupe myself. My usual walk down and around the maintenance building has left me sweaty and exhausted.
At first I thought maybe I aspirated some fuel on Saturday, while breathing fire. Most of the ache has been centered in my guts, though, and I think maybe I ate something bad, or ate too much of the wrong thing, or … this is the other possibility… just worked myself too hard the last few days.
In any case, despite the sweatiness I am feeling better this morning than I did last night. I am going back to bed though.
