The final key to the puzzle: Saturday night in Charlotte, we all went to watch the Bobcats narrowly fend off the Washington Wizards, in their 2-week old stadium. This included the parents, Greg, Anna, her husband Brian and his parents, and about 8 of Anna & Brian's friends. After the game, the parents hit the road and the rest of us walked down the street to a bar. I had started out the evening good, didn't get any beer at the game. So much for that. At the bar I had 3 Yuenglings, 2 Irish Car Bombs, 1 Jaeger Bomb, and half of a Rum & Diet Coke. We got home around 1AM, and after a half hour of scrounging up some leftovers, crashed on the inflatable mattress. Four hours later, Brian was waking me up to take me to the airport, and we are back to the story. Lower back pains, which kept me tossing and turning all of last night as well, and I still feel them today. And you know now what my guess is. My kidneys. I hope they're ok! If they don't ease up in the next day or two I'm gonna have to see a doc for the first time in years.
On a lighter note (heavier to me!):
she taunts me
that i would flee
yet i know
that it has begun to show
Let me selfishly ask of your prayers for me, for courage and integrity.
