Got a lumbar puncture (aka spinal tap!) this afternoon while cranking the B-52s. Great spinal tap music if you ever get the chance. Imagine Dan as maple tree! I took a long time to "drip." Doctor recommended caffeine - a vascular constrictor - to keep the pain away. So I'm about to have the first cup of coffee I've had in weeks. A nice cup of Ethiopian coffee, enjoyed with my mother. Listening to Boxcar Willie, some music my Grandpa Paul and I both enjoyed together. Feeling great.
