How lucky am I to have two moments to write about today! (and just when I thought life was getting boring...)
Conversation at work:
Co-worker One: "Man, I just lost all my energy today. I have to sit"
Me: "If I sit, then I'll for sure never get up" (I've just spent the entire day on my feet)
Co-worker One: "Don't your feet hurt?"
Me: "No, it's really my lower back that hurts. It happens when I spend a lot of time standing up"
Co-worker One and I continue to have a conversation about what it's like to spend all day standing, never getting a chance to sit down, and how yes, your back will inevitably ache.

"It's called your period"
No. No it is not. It's called BACK PAIN from standing up ALL day.
"I had to have my right testicle removed"
....a terrible injury of some sort, apparantly.
