Due to circumstances beyond my control …
Today, I’m just going to share a couple pics from my trip to Santa Monica last Sunday.
I should be back to “normal” blogging tomorrow.
An overcast, and therefore uncrowded, day at the beach in Santa Monica.
As a young-un’, I hung out a lot in Santa Monica and Malibu.
Dinosaurs used to roam the beaches back then.
They had big teeth and roared a lot.
Some of them had little arms.
Can you spot the plane in the above photo?
Since those days, air-o-planes have been invented.
Santa Monica isn’t very far from LAX (airport), so you can hang out on the beach AND watch planes all day.
Double good fun!
(Remember all the Doublemint gum commercials? Do they still make those? With the double-good twins? Double good, double fun!!)
How old AM I???
By the way,
The circumstances beyond my control which I alluded to at the beginning of this post …
Might involve accidentally taking two pain pills at one time.
How does a person do that?
(It involved vitamins! And accidentally gulping down what was NOT a vitamin with a pain pill. Which equals two pain pills. I was distracted arguing with Briefcase about the importance/non-importance of landlines. As in telephones. As in, I will not die from an overdose – but I’m having trouble thinking in a straight line.)
I can’t believe I used to (post-surgeries) take big, enormous, doses of pain pills every four hours.
Did I mention it was a very tough PT session yesterday?
I thought I might faint during/after it –
I think I forgot to breathe for most of my session.
I do that sometimes when I’m in a lot of pain.
I also said bad words.
More than once.
The Neanderthal doesn’t even flinch when I say bad words.
(Also? He’s truly helping me so much –
Even when he really, really, hurts me. Which he did. Yesterday.)
Where was I?
Oh, in Santa Monica.
(I’m going to regret this post, aren’t I? But if I didn’t post anything, people would think something was really, really, wrong. In fact, I will be perfectly fine in a couple hours – and I will be a lot more careful with taking vitamins in the future. Also, do you have a landline? Or do you just have a cell phone?)
What was I saying?
Santa Monica, at dusk.
Santa Monica was really pretty at dusk, with the clouds rolling in …
I think I should go now.
And really – I’m FINE.
I’m “allowed” to take lots of pain pills –
I just usually don’t.
(And now you know why!!)
