So I kind of over did it again at the gym. Hard not to over do it when you are surrounded by hot chicks in neoprene and spandex. Particularly when they can out perform any lazy guy. But that is neither here nor there. Today every step I take feels like a charlie horse. I cant even get to the phone before the answering machine picks up and I cant sleep either cause the phone keeps ringing. So I have just resigned myself to sit here and hurt and try not to think about the Persian White Poppies I have blooming in my backyard and the heady Opiates they contain. No need to go chasing the dragon everytime I feel an ache, right? Gorgeous flowers and only illegal if you decide to go tampering with God's nightcap. I'm enjoying my rich garden and grow wary of the encroaching fall and inevitable frost. Winters are long where I come from. Long and dark and cold as hell.
