Haiku For Monday #114

Oh my aching back!
Need traction, got work instead.
And Aleve? Does dick.

Sorry about the back. Aleve does suck.

Try 3 Advil instead. The Liqui-Gels.

So sorry Chris. Yeah, Aleve only masks the pain, and your pain tolerance increases over time. Ice will help (dunno if you can do that at work), and drink lots of water...and not so much caffeine....that'll make it less inflamed.

Aleve is totally amateur hour. Six syllables for you if you've truly hurt your back (trust me, you'll know - you can't move):

Flex.I. Ril.
Vi. Co. Din.

Feel better!

I hate having a sore back (And shoulder too, usually)! It's a definite minus of working as a cashier, and a rather frequent occurence.

I know this sounds terribly old-fashioned but get Beth to rub you down with Aspercreme. It's amazing.

What, too much rolling around on the floor with Mia?
