Goodbye Angry Mr. Achilles. Hello irate IT-band.

I am not sure who did it or when. 

 Strike that. I do know when.

 It was two Thursdays ago.

The horrid day that someone ticked off my IT-band.

Strike that.

The horrid day that someone royally ticked off my IT-band.

Like I said, I don't know who it was, but tick it off they did! 

And the irate IT-band has been fuming mad ever since.

Now, I don't know if you know much about fuming mad IT-bands, but they hurt ... paper cut in the eyeball style.

And I am so over it.

1. I am not able to run. If I am not able to run ... stay clear. I am no one you want to be around when I cannot run at will.

2. It is messing with my company softball team {because, like, hello, I cannot run}.

At our first softball game things got desperate. And desperate times call for desperate measures.

Like using the snowman duct tape as athletic tape

Is now the appropriate time to tell you that the snowman duct tape was used to tape on numbers for the two players who did not have numbers on their shirts? Like I said, desperate times call for desperate measures. And we were certainly desperate in more way than one. :) 

As each passing day came and went without relief, I contacted my favorite athletic trainer {even though he wasn't the one who drained my toenail}.

He suggested I roll my IT-band out with ... a rolling pin.

Being the non-domestic fool that I am, I clearly didn't own a rolling pin.  Soooo, I stole borrowed mama's. 

And zoo-ee-mama! Does this hurt!!

I also invested in some kinesiology tape ... Which is straight from heaven, much like unto contacts and air conditioning. 

I think the IT-band is showing some improvement.

And it better be!

Because I have a softball game tonight.

And while I don't run every day {not even close}, I need to know that I could run any day I wanted. 

So, to you horrid, little irate IT-band: it's been real. But it hasn't been real fun. You better be packin' those bags soon or else ... you will have a standing date hourly - indefinitely with Mr. Rolling Pin. How do you like them apples?


To answer questions regarding the dot system ... Level I dating is you are just dating non-exclusively and since these people receive no dot, I am also assuming Level I dating also includes sitting home on your rump and not dating at all! Isn't that so fun to have the publicly advertised??? :) 

One word about the entire system: GOO.

But let's add some others for fun: intrusive, invasive, meddlesome, prying, nosy, tactless and all up in my grill! 

But I guess that's all that needs to be said about that. For now. ;)

I'm assuming from your facebook post today that your leg is not getting better like you thought.
