When I’m working and have a good amount of cash, I buy all kinds of deals on Groupon – which works great, since I can redeem them when I’m not working and not break the bank eating out and pampering myself (not literally, of course. I think that’s a different deal site).
Today, I went for a massage courtesy of Groupon. This particular massage place was one of the medical places that’s got a doctor there, so they did a whole intake questionnaire and had the therapist look me over since I’d mentioned some shoulder pain.
She took a step back, cocked her head and said “that’s odd. Your left shoulder is lower than your right one”.
I really honestly thought I’d escaped this particular injury. It’s something that happens to ‘lifer’ electricians. We load heavy stuff on whichever shoulder we like better (for me it’s the left side. Although I’m right-handed, I do just about everything else in a left-side dominant manner), and eventually the shoulder drops, leaving us looking like some Victorian bell tower dwelling monster. Or something.
So now, I’ve got uneven shoulders, and a thumb with a chunk out of it.
There go my dreams of being the world’s oldest supermodel.
Also, work is still dead. Dead, dead, dead. Hopefully, it’ll pick up towards the end of the month.
