For the Record: First official injury is..to the back! Sweet. But that's not the 'story' im here for. Thats just for fun. |
But anyway, the story. Well, it's not REALLY a story- but we'll pretend it is one.
So, yesterday I went to the chiropractor for my back. Actually now that I think about it- its like two stories. boy aren't you lucky?
so back to Dr. Fred, yes that's the chiropractors name. Weird huh? I thought he was a hippy when i heard his name, but who knows. Im still thinking about that one.
So, my lower back thing has been hurting, like mucho. And my Dad thinks it might be my sciatic nerve or something. So I went to Fred yesterday (its dad's dr. not my chiropractor) and I had do to all of these little 'test' thingies-hold up my arms,ssee if my legs were straight, very high-level high energy stuff. I felt kinda like he was in the circus once before just b/c of all the energy he had. But I was too scared to ask him. Unfort. My back still hurts like a mother, BUT my legs are even now! When i went to MY chiro. my leg was like 1/4 or more shorter than the other~!! craziness!
So thats story number one. Now, you may want a box of kleenex next to you for this one, it's very heart-wrenching. Its about harvey, of course. Oh, the other night dad and tori hopped on my bandwagon of glorious name-making-for-inanimate objects, and dad decided his name should be mike. Why mike? Because Bicycle has 2 wheels (bi) and Monocycle has one wheel (mono). Ok, so youre probably still asking "why mike?" Well, i dont know how u go from mono to mi-but it made sense at the time. But I told him no dad his name's harvey- i cant UNname him, that would be mean and scarring for him. So he's like ok, how about mike harvey? or Harvey Mike? and im like still, no that doesn't sound g oood!! So, apparently Mike is either his first name, middle name, or last name; or he doesnt have a last name. Im letting him decide.
What do you think, Mike harvey, harvey mike? Either way im gonna paint his name on the seat in red. (or mayb lime green- i want the spokes lime green/red) First i ahve to come up w/ a little stencil of it. And get spray paint. :Its gonna rock.
Ok, next h-m related story: Or did i just get so off track w/ that name business and THIS IS the actual 'first story'. hmm..
Hes still on 'crutches' b/c of those dirty chinese manufactuers and their rice pudding!! Yesterday we went to wall mart to go get a new pump w/ an attachment for the inner tube. And in the back of my mind i kjnew it wouldnt work so i looked at the inner tubes themselves. And guess what? would u like a 16,18,24,26,27 inch tube? Why yes, maybe for th at lovely tonka bicycle on display there, but not for harvey!!! NO 22 INCH TUBES. ANYWHERE. kmart or walmart. or sports authority. Im very distraught about this, as you can tell.
but the good news is i got a helmet! Well, dad got me a helmet-very surprising. It's red and shiney, and in the store it had the snow white effect on little children. That sounds mildly disturbing, but it's not. Its shineyness attracted their bulging eyes to its shiney shiney red surface, like that pesky pesticide-injected apple that dwarf-lover just HAD to eat. I found it very entertaining to watch t heir eyes fix on it and then i'd wave it around slightly so it would catch the li ght. Does that make me evil? no. I was just trying to give them some happiness. And u know what was ironic? this ONE spanish kid WAS eating an apple when his eyes just happened to stumble upon my helmet. Geez, what luck.
So yea- i have the helmet, the hard hat, the name, the seat fixed finally, BUT NO HARVEYNESS! Thats the end of my story. WE're selling shirts in the lobby. Good night.
