The headache is not going to go away on its own. I can sit here and try to ignore it, continuing to do whatever I’ve been doing right along… which may or may not actually have contributed to the formation of the headache in the first place. I can… but it would not be the smart way to go.
Inertia is more powerful than I realize. I continue on with the headache far longer than I ought, even while I think to myself that I should get up and take something. Washed down with a Diet Mountain Dew.
Even with the promise of this treat I procrastinate, as if the headache were something to savor, something I enjoy.
It’s really, really not.
Sigh. Where is that Excedrin, anyway?
