Last weekend, something strange and fucked up happened to me.
I’m not sure if it was stress caused by financial distress or the fact that I hadn’t eaten much that day, but I got up from my couch last Saturday and blacked out.
This has nothing to do with Weedeater, who will be touring this year with King Parrot, with dates following at the very end of this post.
But I need to vent for a minute.
I was only out for a second or two. When I came to, I was laying on the floor of my living room, and as I went to kneel, I noticed blood was gushing from somewhere on my face.
Turned out, it was coming from my bottom lip.
A friend was on hand and watched me take my header directly into the hardwood. Seems my chin hit the floor first, followed by my two front teeth.
As my teeth were driven into the wooden floor, they ended up ripping my bottom lip apart, requiring three fucking stitches. The force of the impact slightly fractured my two front teeth, and knocked one of them out of alignment.
Since Saturday, my entire face has been sore. I scratch my nose, pain. I smile, pain. Rub my cheek, pain.
A battery of tests to determine what could have caused this fainting spell were inconclusive, proving little more than my “levels are all fine.”
My fat lip is scabby, gross, and as dry as a walnut. My teeth still hurt. And it’s going to cost me a pretty penny to fix them, so I may end up returning to my hooking days.
Since late October, shit has just been fucking bad. The opposite of good. So much has gone wrong that falling on my face and fucking up my teeth was merely salt on the already gaping and weeping wound. I can’t even get into half of what’s been happening, but I can guarantee you it’s crowd-funding worthy.
Anyways, enough about me, my troubles, and my whining.
