This past week, when I've said, "Yikes, I'm getting my wisdom teeth out Wednesday," the most common reaction has been, "That sucks! You're going to miss out on the four-day weekend." Which is true, I'll likely be living on the couch with the painkillers until Monday, but after an obligatory groan I've said back, "Yeah, but it's okay. I have plans."
That's right, the silver lining: mandatory bedrest = prime time to consume media. Meaning books. And movies. And TV shows. And STORIES.
I've already got a list to read/watch and have friends who own lots of DVs which they are willing to lend me. In addition, I'll garner some experience to use in a future story-- pre/post-surgery memories, which will hopefully be more clear than my last surgery when I was six (bye bye, tonsils!). All I remember about that is waking up and croaking, "Water!"
Hopefully a mass intake of multiple formats of stories will motivate me past the transition period of just-finished-Flawless-Ruins-edits-but-haven't-picked-my-current-story-back-up-yet-because-of-tiredness-plus-lots-of-homework. I may try to write, but I'm not sure how much pain/painkillers will mess with my concentration. (I'll let you know nest Tuesday.)
Any suggestions of stories for me to consume?
