Ever have an “attack headache”? That’s what I call them, lots of things really, that seem to just pop up out of the blue with no warning? You’re just going about your day and all of a sudden BAM! It might be a headache, a muscle cramp, an itch, etc. There’s no buildup to let you know something’s coming, it just hits. I hate attack itches! I had a headache like that today. I’ve never actually been shot in the head but sometimes I imagine that pain like I felt today might feel like getting shot.
Why do we do that? “It felt like getting stabbed! … It felt like getting run over by a truck! … It felt like my head exploded!” Hmmm.
Anyway, I took some meds which knocked me out – who knew Ibuprofen could be so powerful? And the kids, bless them, came in and sat on the bed next to me and quietly did their schoolwork while I dozed.
They put all their books on my desk for me to check when I came to so everything was right there, waiting for me.
After that, I made pancakes for dinner since Darc had something special going on with work, and I had the kids watch the original Star Trek episode that enthralled me so much when I was little. They actually liked it! My daughter liked seeing Kirk kick some alien butt best. That’s my girl, loving the rough and tumble of it all, lol. It was fun, sharing that with them.
