Dear Muscle Spasms in My Neck,
I need you to stop screaming and calm down. Listen, I know you need some attention - we all do sometimes - but right now, I just can't address your needs, okay? You're going to have to get in line and I will take care of you when it's your turn.
Yes. The back of the line.
Way back there behind the Titanium costume for Andrew's science class Element Day (Titanium? Seriously. How do you dress like Titanium?) and Emma's Halloween costume. Oh yes, and you'll have to also wait behind Emma's Florida history project that's due this week - all three parts of it that require me to make something - and my own English paper and math project.
I'd like to spend a little time at the piano too, so you can stand right behind Mr. Brahms.
Mmhmmm. That's it.
Now, hold steady. The giant molasses cookies, caramel apples and pumpkin carving party for Friday and the Saturday fundraiser and cookout are shoving to take your spot. If you're not careful, you'll wind up behind them too.
Thanks for your patience.
