Getting Old


Getting old sucks. I knew this already. You go through your 20's and 30's hearing horror stories. And then it starts. I have Palindromic rheumatism which randomly attacks joints all over my body. Try to say that one three times really fast. It is rare and comes from who the hell knows. I have started to wear glasses after 42 years of perfect vision. I just had my first basal cell skin cancer removed and am now scheduled for a more advanced squamouse cell removal. The problem is I you can't even see where they did the biopsy so what are they going to remove? This all started after moving to Boise. Maybe Boise Weekly brought it on. My friend Andy and I started the Happy Club. One of our rules is that you can't talk about any physical ailments. I didn't use to have any. I will have to work on this.
