- Pain: 1/10
- Inconvenience: 5/10
Today’s mugshot is guest starring my rock climbing shoes. That will be one of the first sports I get back into once I regain my energy. You’ll notice my facial expression is the same in almost every photo I take. It’s extremely difficult to twist your face into different expressions when it’s numb. Trust me.
I’m able to talk a lot more now. I wouldn’t call myself chatty quite yet, but I’m feeling a bit more dignified each and every day. As a result, I’m snapping elastics on a daily basis. I feel that it’s a fair trade-off though. I hope these elastics are edible, because every time one snaps, I never see it again.
Due to my newfound ability to communicate in my hybrid state, I’m attempting to become somewhat social again, albeit very slowly. I have so many things I want to say, but I have to filter through them all and decide which statements are actually useful, because it’s far too much work to talk non-stop. And if I attempt to do so, my jaw joints start hurting from the excessive movement. I was, however, able to hang out with a friend last night! It was crazy! We played Crib. And then we played it again. And then we played it one last time. I won all 3 times. I may have chubby cheeks and sound like a salivating monster, but at least I can still think straight.
I made the mistake of eating soup with celery in it last night. Now I have celery strands stuck in my teeth and I’m unable to remove them. This is the true definition of the word “annoying”.
Why are you so sad?
I’ve had several people ask me that question as of late. The truth is: I’m actually very happy! I can’t smile though, so that explains the depressing look upon my face in all my mugshots. My friends also tell me I look like a little kid due to my chubby cheeks. *sigh* So much for being taken seriously in this life…
My jaw has been randomly floating out of place a few times every day. It’s quite odd–it just pops out of place. I have to grab my chin and push it back into the right spot every time it happens, so my teeth fit back in the splint. I’ll admit that it feels a little weird, but I guess that’s the price I must pay for being able to open my mouth a little bit.
Last night, before bed, I accidentally put my hotpack in the microwave for a bit too long. When I took it out, it was so hot that the cereal inside was actually popping. As a result, I burned my face AND had a craving for popcorn.
I checked the Google AdWords’ results for this blog yesterday, just out of curiosity. I had quite a chuckle when I read that its highest rankings come from the following 2 phrases:
- “the best way to lose weight”
- “how to lose weight fast”
I guess they’re not complete lies.
Anyway, I must go pick up some more soup and Ensure today. My roommate is cooking some type of curry chicken right now. And it smells absolutely delicious.
