After finally getting most the terrible back ache out of the way, was coming headaches. This one thought it was his contacts giving him grief once again after months of behaving themselves. He almost blogged:
If not one thing, another.
Is this as the series finale for ST: TNG, where the trial never ends?
Is ma’hab being tested still? Punished for pride?
Etc.Then when ma’habocath’s mind was no longer flooded with, “Oh god my back, my back, it hurts so much, please god make it stop, make the hurting stop.” for almost two weeks, after a week of a horrible stomach bug, shortly following his week-of-bliss-following-religious-experience, his mind finally had room to think, “Oh hey, maybe it’s NOT a good idea to drink 1-2 pots of coffee every morning for weeks!” A load off this one’s mind.
So from now on, ma’habocath will limit his half-gallon-before-getting-out-of-bed caffeine to green tea on work days.
