Well…this morning I bent down and, although I’ve done the same thing a million times, the odds were a million to one that something was going to give.

That “something” was my low back.  It shouted, “CROINK!!!” and I shouted, “What the hell?” Followed by *%$+#^#@&%(# son of a @!%&$ when I tried to stand.

For the foreseeable future, I won’t even be able to do simple yoga moves like this one:
