I think maybe it's being in this office that was making me sick. I felt better yesterday after I left, though it took all evening for the headache to go away. There might be mold or something--I'm allergic to mold. Or maybe it's the lack of circulation or something, I dunno. For now, I'm going to start taking Alpha Lipoic Acid and some other stuff again, see if that helps, and maybe talk to my boss about it.
Anyway, story time! Last night was my Monday D&D group, with my Padfoot (limegreenjillo
) and her hubs, Aaron, plus Josh and Gabe. We rotate DMing--right now Gabe is doing it, and I feel bad for him, because we were really horrendously distracted last night. I mean, it's usually bad, but this was awful.
Case in point: Jill and Aaron sit next to each other at the table, and despite being married for a year and a half now, they still engage in behaviors that are equal parts adorable and obnoxious, such as poking and rubbing each other's shoulders and leaning over to smooch at random intervals. Aaron is especially bad at this, and last night I guess he poked Jill's arm particularly hard, because she made the sad face and said, "There's a bone in there!"
Well, I mean, we can't just leave that alone, can we? Someone said, "That's what she said," (I think it might have been Josh or Aaron) and we all busted up laughing. And then I couldn't leave it alone.
I said, "Heh, I almost did that on myself the other day."
And you know, that works too, so again with the "that's what she said" and we're laughing even harder. But I wanted to finish my story.
I said, "I was giving someone a ride in my car..."
Again, more hysterical laughter. I had to hold onto my chair, I was laughing so hard. But I valiantly continued.
"They were bringing something along and I said, 'You can just stick that anywhere.'"
More laughter. It had reached ear-piercing levels by this point.
"And I almost said that's what she said on myself," I finished, struggling for breath.
"Oh, man, this is never going to stop now," I said after a moment, when we just kept laughing and laughing.
And yeah, that works, too.
There were a couple more before we finally calmed down. It was awesome and terrible. We are such dorks.
