Hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers! Guy Hogan is my name and blogging is my game. The reason I haven’t blogged for several days is because of a painful bout of carpal tunnel–I’m sure a few of you thought I was on a drinking binge. Oh, ye of such little faith. I wish. I experienced my first flare up of carpal tunnel as a grill man for Wendy’s, a fast food chain, about 35 years ago. Flipping hamburgers several hours a day several days a week can mess you up.
Now that I’m a full-time professional blogger, I can’t afford the luxury of waiting for my body to heal itself when my CT flares up again. There’s too much pain and sleep deprivation involved. I’m typing this post with my left hand.
My right hand is coming along and when I get my fun money on Tuesday I’ll purchase a supply of over-the-counter medicine for pain and inflammation to keep in my medicine cabinet. Why? Because the show must go on. The show will go on!
This is Guy Hogan reporting for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette.
PS. I figure I’ll be able to type with two hands by Monday and I can resume practicing Tuesday for karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy the first Saturday night in March.
Hail to Pitt!
