Write two haiku about: the chiropractor.
Had my first ever visit to a chiropractor today. I've had tenseness in my neck and shoulders for... longer than I care to admit, but recently I'd aggravated something in my left shoulder area that I wanted to get checked out.
The short story is that I've got a rib out of alignment (which sounds, to me at least, more horrible than it actually is, apparently) and I'll be seeing her again for more cracking on Monday.
Other things happened today, but I'll get to sharing that tomorrow. Bed time now.
I've got a pretty
high tolerance for pain. "Good,"
she said. "You'll need it."*

With a crack, crack here,
and a crack, crack there, you'll be
good as new once more.
*"What?" I replied, feeling rather worried. She immediately clarified that she wasn't talking about what was about to happen (she meant it would come in handy raising two boys, as we'd been talking about Max and Miles earlier). We had a laugh and eventually I relaxed again.
