getting by


The problem with vertigo is that it makes you dizzy.

No, wait, I can do better than that. Okay. The problem with vertigo for someone like me is that dizziness is not a condition that responds well to bullheadedness. The point of, "Ooh, no, better not push it," comes much, much sooner than for something like a chest cold or fatigue. I am forced into much more -- um...sensible, is I guess the word I'm looking for. I am forced into much more sensible behavior much sooner.

I hate that.

I am also not keen on standing half-asleep and dizzy in the yard at 3:30 a.m. with a dog who has, shall we say, some bad digestive issues, wondering, if I pass out, am I far enough from the dog that I won't fall in anything truly unpleasant? This is not a favorite question to have to assess.

The day is almost certain to get better from that point. At least, one can hope.

I'm going to take a page from yhlee's book and say, tell me something about the wind. Myffic or personal or whatever. Wind. Go.
