some time ago,
i started getting pains.
around my stomach.
i swore it had to be a hernia.
i was all ready to make my appointment.
with the doctor.
the hernia doctor, duh.
to fix me up.
then mm says,
"are you sure you didn't bump into something?"
"maybe it's just sore muscles?"
"have you been doing crunches?"
this made me laugh, a big belly laugh, more soreness, ow.
"when did you first notice the pain?"
it all started around the holidays.
halloween, thanksgiving, christmas.
folks, it ain't a hernia.
my jeans are just way too tight.
