So I went back to my wonderful, awsome ortho doctor Emily Darr MD (super nice, young, seemingly happy for a doctor, etc) this morning to see if I needed a couple more epidurals in my back. We met and she asked me the usual, "if I hit you in the face with this stick does it hurt?" I'm kidding about that one. Other usual "if you do this or that does it hurt like hell?" After "yes, yes, f*^*k yes" she made her recommendation.
Barowing the line from Portlandia and tweaking it just a bit she said "we should just...put some needles in it" and smiled. Classic.
She did put some needles in it. Then we played Atari on that thing after.
