Incendiary Soul

Robert Smith is my power animal.

Pain in the butt literally and figuratively.

I strained my piriformis muscle (which autocorrect wants to change to “pie informs”. I wish pie would inform me it magically showed up in my bedroom…) which is apparently pretty common even for people who aren’t on their feet 13 hours a day, 3+ days a week. I got a nice chiropractic massage and adjustment and instructions to stretch a particular way to avoid adhesions while the musicale heals, and to ice the muscle.

But,seriously, wtf. How am I supposed to ice this bitch?

That’s it. There. Right there. The problem is that it’s swelling, stressing out my sciatic nerve. If this has ever happened to you, you’ve probably seriously considered taking a bullet instead of dealing with it. So, ice would help the swelling go down.

That musicale is under other, thicker muscles. Which are under, in my case at least, a considerable amount of butt fat. This ice pack makes my skin painfully cold before I feel any kind of relief on the musicale/nerve combo that’s buried under all this junk (in my trunk).

So, this is partially just a whiney complain post, but also, help? Anyone with experience with this have any advice? How I should sit or lay? Better products than a a shitty ice pack? Anyone with a Percocet hookup? I only need two.

Doodling Joe as an angry, melting skeleton, cursing the rain for giving him emo hair. #skelly #doodle #pencil #bored #youkillmeikillyou

So I’m assuming he won.

Well, there’s nothing for him to have won. These bloodied antlers aren’t the result of a fight. See, deer lose their antlers and grow new ones every year. When they grow new antlers, the new antlers are covered in a fine, fuzzy skin called velvet. When the time comes for the antlers to stop growing and become hard and sharp, the velvet becomes very uncomfortable and the deer rub their antlers on rough surfaces like trees to scrape it off.
Because antler is bone, and because the velvet that helps them grow is very blood-rich, bucks who have recently shed their velvet look very gory! Not to worry though, this is all perfectly natural and soon the dead skin and blood will go away and leave behind a magnificent set of mature antlers, just in time for the autumn mating season.

deers metal as fuck
