My friend back pain


It's just me and my back pain out at the front desk of the library!

"How are you two doing?" You ask.

We are just fine, thank you very much.

If you asked me how I am doing, I would maybe have to say, "Okay, but my back hurts." But if you ask me and my back pain how we're doing, well, answering that my back hurts wouldn't make much sense, would it? It would be redundant. And it wouldn't really speak to all the nice conversations my back pain and I are having about how we'd rather not have to get out of this chair for a few minutes.

If it's quiet for a while at the front desk sometimes my back pain thinks about trotting off to the fiction stacks to look for a good mystery to read. 

But when things pick up we get real chatty with each other.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
