Cody, Cody, Cody…

I have discovered Codeine. Codeine makes my butt not hurt anymore. Codeine is my friend.

I’ve spent lots of the last two days very sore. Walking hurts. Sitting hurts. Lying at slightly the wrong angle hurts, as I discovered last night, taking an hour and a bloody half to get to sleep.

Right now, I can’t feel a thing from my left glute. I suspect that if I spent twenty minutes rubbing it hard against a cheese grater, I still wouldn’t feel anything, but that’s not the point. Right now, there is comfort.

And codeine. And ibuprofen. And vino.

I suspect that tonight, there will be sleep.

    Sleep well, my friend. Codeine solves everything. (But you didn’t hear that from me…)
