No, no, not this kind of shot:Rather it was this kind of shot.Listen; I hate shots. I am using the word HATE about shots. I may not hate them as much as SuperDave does; he once just walked out of Doctor Dailey's office instead of taking the injection, mom later found him wandering Davis Island some 3 miles away, yeah, he was about 10. Still I hate shots.
Two examples: #1 after SuperDave's splitsville thing, I decided shots weren't all that mondo jovial, so I tried to be cool, but it was no use, I was putting up a fight.... it took about 6 nurses, not exactly supermodel slim ones either, to hold me down and administer the medicine.
#2 After Becky pushed me out of that tree in Land o Lakes and they loaded me in to the helicopter, the paramedic (medic that jumps out of planes, I guess) asked, "Hey bud, you look like you're in bad shape, do you want some morphine?" Now you've fallen 22.5 feet and a tree landed on you, you are in a medivac helicopter on your way for 6 hours of surgery, who wouldn't want a shot..... er, me, that's who! "No, I'm fine, no morphine for me." Paramedic, are you sure, I mean, your arm is messed up and you look white as Michael Jackson?" "Nope, I can make it. says I!" Listen you're probably in shock, you probably need the morphine." Me telling it like it is, "It's not that I don't want morphine, I just really don't like shots!" Helicopter dude, "Oh, we give it to you in an IV." Me, "Bring it on, bring it on, Sweet Jesus, bring it on!" I love IV's!
So, no you know how much I hate shots. Well, I called the doctor, "Doctor, I need the shot."
Doctor Foot, "I been waiting on your call."
Me, "yeah, thing is, I hate shots, I am using the word hate about shots."
Doctor Foot, "I understand, but really it doesn't hurt."
"Whatever, I hate not running more than I hate shots, it's worth a try."
And guess what, Doctor Foot was not lying, it didn't hurt at all. This morning was my first post shot run, and it didn't hurt, sucker was numb, I know that. I know it probably isn't a cure, but damn, it felt good to run pain free.
Thank you Doctor Foot, I had forgotten that I actually do like to run! I just hope it gets me through the Rocky Mountain Oyster Double Marathon and that the next one gets me through Western States!
