Verti-No-Go


Jimmy Stewart (I think it was him, mighta been Cary Grant) climbing that tower, and then, he's so dizzy his head is spinning.

AndyMan putting on his shoes this morning, and BAM, vertigo hits me like a ton of bacon fat. I tumble onto the bed and watch this Spin-Spin. I've had Vertigo before, I know what happens next. First we get the spinning, then the profuse sweating, then the nausea. In short, no run for me today.

Well Damn. Damn, damn, damn, damn, damn, damn. Already got dressed, packed a bag, taped my feet with this really damn expensive tape that the Doctor made me buy. Got my new shoes, and these are kicks, they aint no hotboxers! But, even though the Vertigo rarely lasts more than an hour and I can have Jon drive, not a good idea to go up and get dizzy while in the middle of the woods. Plus when it hits, I can't walk and it's hard to even crawl, just gotta lay on my back and wait. So, I loaned Jon my car to get up there, aw, he'd do it for me (course, most of you have seen his car, you hit something with it and the value of the car actually increases!)

Oh, well, reckon I'll have to rendezvous with Star tomorrow for sure now.

Damn you Alfred Hitchcock, why'd you have to go and invent this crap anyway?
And one more thing, vote in the Santa poll will you. I know you don't all believe, but I site as evidence Santa's appearances in Miracle on 34th Street, The Santa Clause (I and II) and don't forget the most excellent Elf. Say I believe, say I believe, say I do believe!

Vertigo = Not Fun

Two years living with the condition and all I can say is I feel your pain . . . erm dizziness.

I'll be content if I can get through the holidays without an episode.

Sometimes I get vertigo when I drink scotch...and wine...and scotch and wine together. Wait, is vertigo when you meet ugly girls in bars?

AndyMan said...

Er, you know, maybe we should ask the girls Prof. Hey, just saying

Star said...

Vertigo or Hangover? Pretty much the same description.

Bring your brother out to Croom tomorrow morning...

Dude, if it warant fer bad luck, you'd have no lack at all...

Feel better, drink more water, it's probably dehydration. Or something.

(Disclaimer: I am not a medical doctor, but my father was a dentist, so there's that)
