Eating my words

Tonight I am eating my words! I hate when I do that! Today I worked at the school in the library and this morning a man from the district, who has something to do with ergonomics, came in to assess the library. It is not set up to be real functional AND with Juanita recently needed to have neck surgery and Mrs. Schmidt constantly needing to see a chiropractor, they brought in a specialist to see if things can be revamped. I happened to be the one in the "hot seat" when he was there, so he was watching me work and watching all of the twisting, turning etc. that is required to do this job in the set up that they currently have. I can't remember exactly what was asked of me, but it was something along the lines if I felt I was having alot of twisting and turning of my neck. I spoke right up and replied, "Oh, I wouldn't go by me, because I am MUCH YOUNGER than all of these ladies here and don't have such problems." I'm not kidding when I tell you that not too long after he left, I started having neck pain! I don't know if it was caused by me being tense while he was watching me, or if maybe just being a smart ass might have been the cause? Needless to say, it has progressed to the point where I have had to medicate myself tonight for neck pain and I feel like I'm walking around like Igor. When they were talking about the level of the computer monitor, he wanted to know if we wore bifocals and I once again said, "Oh no! I'm too young for those!" So, I'm waiting, because I'm afraid that my vision is going to be the next to go!

I'm going to go lay on the couch and read my book and see if this medication will start working to relieve my neck discomfort. I'll learn not to be such a smart ass in the future!
