There's an old joke that picks up the words of the only survivor of a plane crash in a remote jungle. The rescuers finally get to the guy who is the lone survivor of a horrific plane crash that resulted in a fire that destroyed all the other people on the plane. There are parts of human bodies hanging from the trees and the first rescuer asks the survivor how he's doing:
"It's weird," the survivor said. "It only hurts when I laugh."
Well, leading up to the idea that I could golf on back-to-back days I thought, "How bad can it be?"
I would rest and stretch through the two rounds.
Pick up the conversation between me and my buddy yesterday.
Me: "I can't breathe without pain. I'm such an idiot."
Buddy: "You looking for me to argue?"
It's hard to work when your only thought is:
"My back hurts."
But here we are!
Guess who is NOT golfing the rest of the year!
And to those of you reading this and thinking:
"He's such an opinionated a-hole."
Just know that I'm a little like the airplane survivor.
But as much as I'm trying to laugh my way though it...
