I have a splitting headache. It’s not a migraine. Those have very specific symptoms for me (light sensitivity, head pain, the tendency to speak in a bad German accent). My head just . . .hurts.
Supposedly, there’s medicine one takes for headaches, but I don’t actually know what it is. I have some random stuff in the medicine cabinet, which I stuck up my nose, but that doesn’t appear to have done anything. I have heard that caffeine helps with a headache, so I drank a six-pack of Coke. My headache is still there, but now I’m very, very awake.
And I have to pee.
The odd thing about this headache, though, is that it’s not centered on my forehead as usual, but rather near the top my skull, at roughly 4 o’clock (assuming my nose is 12). Also, when I put my hand there, I can’t help but notice there’s an odd protrusion, like the head of a 16-penny sinker nail (they’re about 3.5 inches long, FYI), a type often used in framing houses.
This is odd because it feels like it’s been there a long time, but I don’t recall ever noticing it before. One would think that one would notice such a thing, but I am amazingly clueless, as regular readers can attest.
I did try to remove it with a claw hammer, but now I can’t remember the word for the thing that you get in to go to work. I think it’s ‘credenza,’ but that’s probably not right. Credenza’s are a type of shoe
Anyway, I may actually go to the doctor-place and have someone look at it.
Assuming I can remember how to make the credenza go.
NOTE: I’m kidding. I don’t have a nail in my head and I know what a car is. Occasionally, I do a blog like this and I get an email from a friend asking if I’m actually okay. Yes. I have friends. So, just to forestall any concern: no, I don’t have a nail in my head. I do have rocks in there, but that’s a different story.
