This morning, the alarm went off at 6:35 as it always does. I hit the snooze button twice as I always do, then stumbled out of bed, grabbing my robe which is hanging on the hook it always hangs on. I shower, starting from the top (washing hair) and working my way down as I always do. I turned the water off, flicked open the shower curtain and reached for the towel hanging where it always hangs.
Then my back decided to do something it has never done before. And that is why I stayed home today taking muscle relaxants as frequently as the directions allowed and watching Doctor Who on Neflix.
