Of the thousand mortal shocks that flesh is heir to, a really ripping sinus and/or migraine headache has got to rank near the top, especially if you’re the kinda guy who somehow made it past a number of Significant Birthdays unplagued by such ailments.
I mean, I just never, ever, have headaches, not even on mornings when (shift to passive voice) activities have been undertaken that are known to produce same. I didn’t even know where the aspirin were until my wife, reluctantly pressed into nursing duty, found them. And all this sensitivity to light, noise, etc? Alien to me.
Anyway, today seems slightly better than yesterday, so perhaps I’m on the mend. Now, just one other worry: Is this a pre-existing condition?
