I believe I have mentioned a time or two that I play football with friends from work on Thursdays. Well, tonight I made a beautiful touchdown - and also twisted my ankle, bent my fingernail, and subsequently my finger, all the way back, pulled myriad muscles, permanently agitated several areas of my spine, and probably jarred something loose in my skull. And why do I play, you may ask. Well, because it is great fun, great exercise, and a great way to work out work-related angst. Also, because we go to my favorite hot dog place afterwards - they have about 30 styles of hot dogs on the menu and will make any one vegetarian - plus they have THE BEST pickles and strawberry rhubarb pie! I always get the Veggie Mongrel hot dog which has sauerkraut, relish, onions, sweet peppers, mustard, ketchup, melted cheese, and veggie chili on it - yum!! So, though I will not be able to walk tomorrow, the touchdown and hot dog, with pickle, fries, and pie, made the effort more than worth it.
