They drop in unannounced at least once each month and sometimes more often. They storm right in and make their presence known immediately. They never ask if I have time. They don't really seem to care what is on my schedule for the day, where I have to go, or who I may need to see.
For the most part I try to ignore them. I keep doing what is expected and just put up with their outrageous, unruly behaviors. I try to focus and not complain. I try to pretend they are not bothering me. I must be a pretty good actress for many people have no idea how impaired I am.
Today they played a cruel joke on me. The first one arrived just after lunch and the second at the end of the work day. They attacked me from two directions, front and back. You see as I was getting into my trunk to retrieve a scraper. The lid to the trunk fell and struck me in the back of the head. Instant pain...I wanted to cry but I didn't. Yes a migraine behind my right eye after lunch and a bump on my crown from the lid of the trunk at the end of the day. I don't have an Oscar performance left in me. I hurt all over.
