The great big headache list

The one year anniversary of my headache is coming up on February 17th, right after Valentine’s Day. I hope it gets me a gift! A fuzzy teddy bear perhaps? Or maybe a cake shaped like a Vicodin with hydrocodone ground into the icing? At the very least, it owes me back rent for all the time it’s occupied my head.

I’ve decided to post a list of all the suggested causes and cures people have sent me over the past year, from the serious to the absurd. Why? First, if you are someone who is googling the phrase “headache that doesn’t go away” or “never ending headache” or “chronic daily headache” this entry will give you a lengthy to-do list.

9 things that have made me feel old lately

1) Going to bed at 9:00 (yes, PM).

2) Watching a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie and enjoying it.

3) Sitting in a coffee shop and being annoyed by “those damn teenagers.”

5) Watching the ladies ice skaters at national’s and realizing they were all born in the 90’s.

6) Realizing I am older than Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, or Jimi Hendrix ever were.

7) Hating the snow because it’s hard to drive in instead of loving the snow because it’s fun to sled in.

8) Taking a ton of pills at night. (I skipped becoming my mother and went straight to becoming my grandmother.)

9) Feeling tired all the time.

What’s made you feel old lately?

Humans can sleep for days when living alone underground, experiments show - ScienceAlert
This is probably a sign that I've got problems, but the idea of sleeping for 30 hours sounds really appealing.

Justin Bieber chastised audience for clapping on the offbeat: The biggest challenge facing musicians at shows is audiences with bad rhythm.
I'm linking to this because of the video of Harry Connick Jr. at the bottom, who manages to throw in an extra beat in the middle of a song to get people to start clapping on the offbeat without them even realizing. Mad skillz!
