06:51 pm - Muscular. Cartoon screws.

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

So, two doctors in a row say it's muscular. This one told me to take 800 mg of Motrin every 8 hours for 5 days, so I'll try that. Seems to help; this afternoon I took a nap in my bed, and that spot on my back only felt vaguely sore.

Then to the hardware store. Since I haven't yet drilled any holes for the towel bar, I had more freedom to pick hardware. I picked some self-tapping drywall anchors that look like big white plastic cartoon exaggerations of screws, which you SKA-ROOO into the drywall and then screw actual screws into them.

Also, a guy finally came today to fix that spot in the shower with missing tile. On Friday I'll be able to use the shower. So, once I get the towel bar put up (maybe tonight!), the hardware work on the bathroom will be complete! Then we'll just need to put in some furniture to put towels and things in.

I'm on 600 mg Motrin for my knee and get an MRI tomorrow.

The bathroom problems are at my work - they shut off the water to the toilets (but the sinks still work) while they were working on the women's room on my floor. Another day of going upstairs to the 3rd floor men's room...

Do the muscular cartoon screws have a beefy arm coming out the back?

Screwdor was a man!
I mean... he was a screw-man!
Or maybe he was... just a screw!

Screwinating the drywall!
Screwinating the towel rack!
Screwinating all the people...

...wait never mind.
