Chickens in the Basement

I love to write and I love to laugh. When I write, I get to the point quick. My stories would fit on the back of a postcard. They usually make me chuckle. And you know what they say, "It's all about me!"

Pain in the Butt

Terri and I did our usual two mile walk today.
Riley Dog was a little slow, so I didn't over-do it.
However, a little later, I walked out to the mailbox and realized my right butt cheek was killing me.
The only way I could get any relief while walking was to lift that butt cheek from where it met my thigh.
I didn't see what I looked like, but know it was NOT attractive. I will not be venturing out in public until I get used to the pain or it no longer hurts.
I have no intention of winding up on America's Funniest Videos and earning somebody else $10,000 because they videoed me hauling my right ass cheek around the mall.
You know, my butt cheek is big enough to put a sling around it, hence, no photos with this post.
But, I think the other end might have to tie around my neck. Ben Gay on the hind parts sounds a little too close for comfort. Maybe I'll just stick to Aleve and stay out of sight for a day or two.

Ha ha ha!

As we get older, the "no pain no gain" deal is baloney! Rest up, you likely pulled something and it will be fine in a few days.

Meanwhile a (((hug))) for Mz Chickens owie bum lol...

I am laughing so hard but with you not at you. I was doing some yard work the other day and my right butt hurts like the dickens! Don't know if I was standing funny or what but I keeo reaching back and massaging my butt cheek and hey not something I want videoed either. Aleve has helped.

Just wanted you to know that I love you more than life itself. You stinker. If I ever get 5 minutes to myself before the day's over I'm going to show the world what one of my bestest buddies sent me for my b'day. Tell hubby to give you a big kiss on your butt cheek and it'll get all better!

Aww, getting old is a pain in the butt, ain't it? I prescribe two glasses, no three glasses (and make them double) of wine. That will alter your walk enough that no one will notice how high you hike your leg, except for the neighbor's dogs.

Have a good weekend!

LOL! I can relate, Anna. I swear, I turned a wicked corner this past year and am really feeling older lately. ugh. Rage against the light!

Barbara said...

As I prepare to leave for Vegas with my mom, your post reminds me that I will be carting BOTH sides of my butt when I'm done with this trip. She will make me go everywhere.

Sending you a virtual Vicodin in hopes your butt will feel better soon.

Oh, we should just invent butt slings now so we can make some money on them before other people.

What would my Friday night be like without Anna, Christine and Barbara? You ladies make me laugh until I cry. Thank you. I hope to sit and have a glass of wine with you all someday.

I hope that your butt is feeling better very soon!

Oh the joys of getting older! Now I have heard of having you butt in a sling but not so literally! LOL!
I think I might pay money to see that!

Put on some really tight panties and adhere an over the counter medicated pain and heat patch right to that cheek!
That really sucks!

Hi Anna!
You are a riot!

Sending up prayers for your backside, my friend!

......stop making yourself the butt of jokes (pun intended!) and take a rest dear one! My left one hurts like hell when I sit too long in one position - I think it's the sciatic nerve (sciatica - which is really miserable). Thank goodness Paula is treating me to Business Class for that 18 hr. flight in a few weeks - at least I should be able to recline the seat for the night and not have to worry about hitting someone behind me in the teeth!!

As for the Atomic vase - perfect for those really brilliant azaleas.

Hope to see you before I leave Anna - maybe we can meet for coffee. Let me know if you'll be at the shop any day - I'll try to get by.
