I forgive you. Or maybe you forgive me? Did I do something that made you curve into an S-shape, to try to crush my internal organs? Well, that was fixed with the rods, so you don’t have to worry anymore. Except that now you can’t move the way other spines can, and I guess that kind of sucks. No more back bends or somersaults, that’s for sure.
Anyway, I forgive you, too, and I am also grateful for you and your co-conspirators, those rods. Those silly dudes who have been with us for so long, trying to fit in, but never really being accepted as part of the “in-crowd”. Maybe it’s time we accept them, what do you think? Are they your best friends now, or worst enemies? Life saver, or ill-maker? Yes, and yes. Yes, and yes.
I am treating you the best I can, when I can, and I hope you see that. I know I wouldn’t be here without both of you. So, thank you.
