When the storms started rolling in this morning around 3:30AM, I noticed (yet again) the direct correlation between the intensity of the storm and the stiffness in my joints. Most of you who know me well know that I have a crappy disease called Rheumatoid Arthritis. Basically, I often feel like an 28-year old woman stuck in an 88-year old woman’s body. So I decided to write a haiku in honor of my creaky joints:
the storm kicks my butt
me, human barometer
arthritis be damned
Sure, it may not be Pulitzer Prize winning, but I think I’m onto something!
