I Won’t Be Ignored!

Oh this day started last night when I told my GM I would be late today. I knew the signs.Migraine aura started earlier in the day. Watching me, getting to know my moves.

Learning me.

I thought she’d hang for just a bit then be gone. I told her we would never work and I needed her to go.

 I made it through the movie (Jason Bourne was great) but on the way home she showed up and started poking at my eye, plucking me in the forehead and by the time I hit the sheets she had my brain in a figure four headlock squishing blood from my temples.

I took some pills to ease the soreness and hopefully knock her out. The pills make me groggy so I figured I’d be late in the morning. I managed to wake on time, not a hard task when she was laying next to me like “mawnin! You thought I was gone!  “I won’t be ignored!”

I had an employee call out so the luxury of treatment flew out the window with all hope of rest.

I made it to work by 7:15. 

Immediately started getting everyone else what they needed. Immediately addressing everyone else’s concerns and carefully avoiding any situation which may have called for me to say “sure, no problem” but would have had me inadvertently scream “f$&k you mo$&erf$&;r” at the slightest provocation.

Pain is a truth serum you’d best not take to work with you.🤔

I stayed in my office working most the day. Overhead light bullying me like a big brother with his finger near touching your eyelash. 

“I’m not touching you, I’m not touching you, I’m not touching you..” “MOMMY! LIGHT WONT LEAVE ME ALONE!” 😩

“I’m not touching you…tee hee hee”

“Light leave your sister alone!”😡

Slowly raises finger to eyelash.

“I’m not touching you…”😎

Oh sweet Jesus what time is it???


I’ll skip the details of how frustrating it is to work with people when you have a migraine burrowed inside your head so deep your teeth hurt. 

Let’s just say I may have filled out a PO for a chainsaw, shovel, a plastic bag, duct tape, some lye and concrete from Home Depot…

Alas the day drew nye and I was able to leave like a bolt of lightening on a stormy day.

Home now properly sedated waiting for the bliss of numbness to remove the dumbness of the day.

Fade away fair maiden fade away…

About The "SoKey" Experience

Each morning I wake I pour myself into a goblet, slowly inhaling the scent of my own faults, swirling them around the glass, allowing them to breath, then I sip, allowing my own inconsistencies to soak my tongue before swallowing. If I am tipsy from my own frailties - I'm less likely to become drunk on yours. -SoKey (introspection)
