Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Back to the Doctor Edition




I’m beginning to think that the warranty on my body has just expired.

Now that my ankle is basically mended – minus a little twinge of pain here and there – a whole new medical issue has emerged in the form of red and bloodshot eyes. I’m off to the doctor to find out what the issue is, but for someone who rarely has any medical issues I’m having quite a run. The wheels are coming off and I’m not enjoying this at all.
