Hydrocodone & Hauerwas


I always imagined that one of the compensations for having serious pain would be taking hydrocodone. Wrong! It only makes me sleepy and muddle-headed; Sam Quinones will not have cause to worry about me. I just woke up from a four-hour hydro nap. The great consolation is that today’s mail came, and the kids put my delivery on my table next to my meds. A good book — now that brings real relife!
