you're welcome

What happens when you go into physical therapy on Friday, in tears, complaining of weird and intense shoulder/neck pain that has switched to the complete opposite side of your body?


Jon the physical therapist sends you home with a towel wrapped tightly around your neck.

(And then you note that "throat towel", while not something you've ever considered as a fashion option for yourself, is, in fact, REALLY NOT something you can "carry off".

When Jon suggests that maybe you should wear the throat towel while you're tooling around Costco with your husband, you politely decline.)

Throat towel FTW

I am SO sorry.

When I have been in this position a chiropractor was the only thing that could make me feel better.

I hope that SOMETHING, ANYTHING works for you!

Oh man, that expression says it all. I don't have any healing words of wisdom other than it won't be like this forever and yes, sweets make it better. Hang in there, you can do it!

I love you all dearly, but WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? You're all WAY TOO NICE.

I was expecting ribbing and teasing and a lot of laughter. Because dudes, I look RIDICULOUS.

Instead, I'm met with sympathy and kindness. Thank you for that. Now go laugh at me, I DEMAND it.

Just so you all know, I married this lady. This is the look I get anytime we are grocery shopping and she wants some kind of craft magazine. Its impossible to say No, and I love her

At least it's not some neon pink colored thing like what they make casts out of for kids who have broken their legs. Maybe you could get an ascot over the top of the towel and walk around your house in a smoking jacket while listening to Masterpiece Theatre? Could be fun...right?

(Just trying to look for the 'funny' in the situation, cuz it hurts to see the hurt in your face....)
