Good news everyone! August is also National Pain Awareness Month!
I learned this by reading an article that was just sent to the paper via email by a women's-health lobby (because bigshot legislators follow our lead on most issues).
Actually, the article is apropos of conversations Lady Steed and I have had recently and, as we were about to buy a megasized bottle of ibuprofin on Saturday, apropos of our planned shopping as well.
Of course, being a man and spending six to eight hours a day laughing at such trivialities as pain, I find all this bemusing at best.
"Ho ho," I say, in the grand tradition of such manly men as Teddy Roosevelt. "Pain!"
The reason men need a room of their own incidentally, is not to write, but to nurse their wounds away from prying feminine eyes.
Or so I hear.
