But not on weekends? It’s called a weekday headache, which seems right. Does it start forming on your way to work or after you’re already at your cubicle/office/desk? I ask because it could be something you’re doing/eating/smelling prior to reaching your workplace. Time to self-sleuth. Could it be the awesome sweet creamer that makes your coffee so delicious? Or is it that perfumy body lotion you hardly notice anymore, you’re so used to it? There are tons of possibilities driving that headache. And headache pain, as you know, just plain sucks. So self-sleuth it out.
Let me know what you find.
Good health to you!
No I didn’t. That was my goal. I wanted to become famous enough as a writer to be invited on Oprah, and turn down the offer. Not because Oprah wouldn’t be good enough (seriously, who could think that?), but because I’d be too nervous to occupy the same room as that brilliant icon, let alone go on stage with her.

As it turned out, the tables were decorated with light green plates, pastel eggs, chocolates and yellow ribbons. This is an army organization, so no complaints about yellow ribbons here. No images of matzoh (unleavened bread), parsley (main herb), delicious charoset (an apple cinnamon staple that makes the palate happy). No pics of Moses. No staff. I’m repeating this next thing because it’s worth mentioning again: no matzoh. What kind of lame-o Passover celebration was this? One with me as the token – the CYA token – so a religious event could be held with tolerance for all who work or use these offices. And I’m to be the tolerant one. Or a jackass.
What do you think? I think I have to bring this up to the chaplain. Meanwhile, y’all, have a
