Waking up at 10:30 a.m.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Strawberries, Maple Syrup, and Kefir. English Breakfast Tea.

Basketball at the Rec. I end up spraining my left wrist. Some heavyset dude new to lunchtime basketball is running with the ball and when I go into beast defense mode I end up falling backwards. His foot accidentally steps on mine causing my fall to be awkward. There goes another injury.

Scrambled Eggs. Sourdough Toast with Butter and Jam. Salt n Vinegar Chips with Avocado. Coffee.

Teaching lessons at Music Makers.

My wrist hurts big time. I’m lucky to be done teaching my 7 p.m.

Back home. I decide to pop two generic Vicodin pills I had from a year ago. About 15 minutes in I start getting dizzy. I hobble over to the bedroom door and faint. Meanwhile Ana, mom, and Austin are downstairs waiting on me to join them for dinner. I hear the sounds of their voices as I come back to consciousness. I can’t believe I just passed out like that. Apparently feeling lightheaded and dizzy is one of the side effects.

We all end up in the living room and decide to watch a movie. I’m still in pain but it’s manageable while I eat the Pho Noodle Chicken Soup. Watching Kodachrome (2018).

Trying to get comfortable in bed. I pop one pill this time just to get me to sleep and distract myself from the throbbing pain in my wrist.

Sleep 2:45 a.m.
