Happy Jackie Washington Day.
Today I pretty much felt like dying from the immense pain when the docs removed my stitches and splint, and then put my foot in my robo boot. Not quite sure why the pain is so intense, especially when I thought things were going fairly well.
And now I might die from OD’ing on Percocets: I keep taking them because the pain just won’t stop.
Don’t worry, some day Jackie will be back.
I can’t tell which one is winning more at dat #CRIPPLELIFE
Seriously guys, I am SO tired and frustrated by these crutches and splint. Just yesterday I was bumping into everything and wearing out my body just by trying to put away laundry. I finally just gave up and sulked in bed. It’s such a chore to do the most basic and everyday things that I am desperate for something to make my life a touch easier.
But these people look so happy and cool, right? I want to be like them.
Remember that CDC campaign I was a part of? Well the ad agency behind it, Brand+Aid Creative, put together the above HTML email debuting their work without the constraints of government guidelines.
Spread the word!
So my mom’s birthday fell on the day after my surgery. My brother, sister-in-law and niece came over to celebrate and I managed to take this serendipitous photo. My niece gets REALLY excited when there’s any type of celebration that involves cake, whether it’s her birthday or someone else’s.
As Ray noted, she’s pretty much doing this in the background:
Anyway, it was a joyous occasion, all things considered!
SUMMER LEG LOOKS 2014
I’ve taken a picture of the different leg looks I’ve been serving for the past week, pre and post surgery. Obviously I had to make a gif. Can you tell I’m bored?
This is my Percocet face.
After I snapped my Achilles tendon in half on Tuesday night, the Georgetown ER gave me a nice supply of “adult candy” to keep the pain away.
Unfortunately, they also gave me the incorrect names orthopedic surgeons three different times. Byeeee Georgetown.
On Wednesday, after seeing ray-ray's awesome orthopedic surgeon at GW, nailtipflips and I decided to visit Lauriol Plaza. Percocet makes me loopy, smily, and kinda happy, especially when paired with a margarita. See above.
This is me, and this is why old people shouldn’t play sports.
Surgery soon, I hope.

Rest in peace, Bobby.
When you get a question mark candle on your cake, it means 1 of 2 things: you old as shit, or your boo is a snatch face and thinks she’s funny. In this case, both are true!
Happy Birthday Boolicious choronda! Here’s to 50 more!!
(The cake took a beating on the way over..ugh. also thanks to Q’Rea Matthews for the great photo)
I’m lucky to have some pretty amazing friends.
