 loco-pop injury

i hurt my neck the other day. a part-time massage therapist (who also works part-time at the station) felt me up and said that i'd pulled my levator scapula. that sounds so fancy, doesn't it?

the injury seems to have occured after i drove myself to loco-pops on sunday. my friends suzie and joel were in a car following me, and after i parked i was so excited to have them taste the gourmet popsicles that i leapt out of my car and did a little jig right there in the loco-pops parking lot. an hour or so after that my neck started to hurt.

i dealt with it (by bitching loudly) for a couple of days, but i finally broke down and got a prescription for skelaxin. i'm feeling a bit better now.

i find myself wanting more popsicles, but i'm scared to go get them; i never knew that place was so dangerous.

Xta, when you fall off the horse you must get back on! When you are injured by doing a Loco Pops jig, you must go back and jig again, as soon as possible! I'll be happy to accompany you. I'll even do the jig, and you can just walk calmly in, if it will make you feel safer.

PS, "Skelaxin" is such a weird name. Like a skeezy drug for relaxin'.

Skelaxin is what you take after you've been Gellin'

Maybe you should persuade Summer to create a Skelaxin Chocolate Cream locopop. Hell, I'd have breakfast, lunch and dinner there if she did!

Serves you right, getting hurt like that, for continually taunting those of us who live out of state with this LOCO-POP madness.

I was thinking maybe you should try to keep it to a safer dance. Maybe a Loco-Pop Waltz or something.

I believe the surgeon general issued a loco-pops warning just last week. It appears to have been lost under the weight of the Katrina catastrophe. You'd best heed the surgeon general. your neck will thank you.
