Well, Christian is out of town again for two days and so I did something I've been wanting to do for a couple of days now, and that is wrap my wrist in an ace bandage because it has been sore. I don't know if it hurts because of some kind of computer mouse-related repetitive stress syndrome or if it is because I did a backbend at my daughter's request and nearly broke my spine (and wrist) but it really hurts when it moves and so, to immobilize it I took my cue from the hundreds of "drama freaks" that I went to high school with who always seemed to come to school with one body part or another wrapped in some sort of bandage.
I don't really understand why being really into drama gives you a predisposition to bandaging yourself. It could have been method acting. Or maybe being in plays and practicing monologues is fraught with more hazards than I realized. Famous actors are always talking about how "hard" it is (Gwyneth Paltrow included) to practice their "craft." I wonder if that's why they wear bandages so often. One time a girl in my English class took on the persona of a Cockney maid for a day. That didn't seem physically dangerous, even though it caused me a lot of discomfort (nothing that would require an ace bandage, however).
At any rate, it feels good to wear this bandage and I may start doing it more often because I like it. 'At's royt, it makes me 'and feel bet-uh.
