Didn’t really get out much this week. It seems that there were always conflicts of one sort or another. Even with all that rest I felt a little lead legged this morning. Still. Feels good to have gone.
Tuesday morning I went and got an EMG to try and determine what’s causing the sciatic pain I’ve been dealing with. What a strange test that is! It involves getting electrocuted in creative ways and measuring the resistance. They can find nerve damage of various sorts. They didn’t find anything conclusive, though.. A slight decrease in activity in an area that would indicate a nerve pinch at S1. So back to the nerve pinch/bulging disk theory. I’ve got a Petscan coming up next week. Maybe I can have them add whatever they’d need to do (MRI?) to see what’s going on. Increased activity does not seem to be helping or hurting.
Yesterday I packed up a customer’s nose bike frame and rims to take to BKLYN for Lance at SquareBuilt to powder coat. Got as far as 42nd st and had a little shit bag malfunction. A pair of little boys sat down next to me on the train. One turned to the other and said, “ew… You farted? who farted? He farted?”
Oh god. I THOUGHT I had smelled something. Couldn’t exactly lift my shirt on a crowded train and figure out what was going wrong, though.
It seems that I had some real beginner’s luck with the irrigation. Having to work out the details now. Hilarious.
Today is my last day as a bachelor. Hill gets back tomorrow. Not a moment too soon!
