Sometimes, there is nothing to do but go to bed. Not that I'm tired, but the minor aches and pains that I have, seem to collectively encompass most to all of my body. I am hopeful that this will clear up after a good night's sleep.
While waiting to go to sleep, I will probably be thinking of this book. The first time I laid hands on a copy (it's in my local library), I read it from cover to cover and savored every single little thing that could kill me. Hiccups. Farts. Eating. Sleeping. Not sleeping. You name it, it can kill you, apparently. The last few times I've been in the library, I've read only the section on pregnancy. I especially like the question and answer section. My favorite question? The one that says something like, 'I'm pregnant. Please tell me something that will scare the shit out of me.' The answer? A list of the most horrific birth deformities and their latin names. Because it's important to know the technical terms for 'baby born with no head or arms,' or 'baby born with only a head, no body'. I would share them with you, but I still haven't actually checked the book out; it's just too much fun to read in the library.
In closing, I'm a bit too out-of-sorts to find an image of a baby with only a head to put with this post. It's probably for the best.
