If you’re keeping score at home (and I know you are) the doctors have determined that I have a pinched nerve due to a bulging disk in my neck. I have been prescribed steroids that should reduce the swelling in the disk and vicodin for the pain. In a few days I should be fine, if not it’s going to br MRI time. Keep your fingers crossed. In the meantime, can anyone tell me how I managed to get a bulging disk in my neck? As I explained to the doctor, in the last few weeks I have engaged in nothing more strenuous than and one brief episode of rocking out to AC/DC in the car when I thought no one was looking. This is the worst AC/DC related injury since Bon Scott rocked himself dead.
Speaking of AC/DC, they were one of the first bands I ever loved. When I was 7 my mother bought me a copy of “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap”. Then on Friday mornings in the summer my father would pick me up in his van and we’d listen to Dirty Deeds all the way to the bar. While I’ve outgrown most of the things I loved at age 7, (Pop Rocks, The Banana Splits show, Pac Man) I still love that ass kicking rock.
