But all of this physical work comes with a price.
In my case, it's the price of back pain.
It began during the first two weeks of May, I spent most afternoons raking and then transporting via wheelbarrow, the leaves and debris that accumulate over the winter months. Yeah, I felt good! Until my next-to-last wheelbarrow load. I bent over to pick up the pile of leaves and somehow twisted the wrong way. And that was all it took. Sigh.
So for the last few days, I've been walking just like the alien guy in District 9. Have you seen that movie? It's a sci-fi about space ships from a dying planet that find their way to earth, only to hover above cities until humans 're-locate' them to a type of refugee camp. There, the creatures love to eat cat food (only a writer would think of that hehehe). The gait of these creatures is identical to mine: a combination of stiff leg and waddle.
