Tale of a Migraine
Get migraine on the job.
Hope the aspirin/tylenol/caffeine cocktail you took kicks the migraine’s ass in the bud.
Unlike ‘regular work,’ are working with people who’ve only known you two weeks, and want to make a good impression, so put off telling them as long as possible.
Get proven wrong about modern medicine’s ability to quell migraine.
Call your production manager and get sent back to the hotel, with many condolences and other nice sentiments.
Lie in a dark room, unable to sleep, possibly due to the caffeine which is taking the edge off.
Be bored out of your mind, yet unable to watch movie to distract yourself.
Have strong feelings about tweeting about said Catch-22, yet be unable to because it requires looking at a screen.
Wallow in self-pity.
Finally fall asleep for 4 hours.
Realize you’ve sufficiently recovered to take your grievances to social media.
Feel slightly better.
Hopefully, don’t repeat.
EDIT: take suggestion to ‘smoke more weed.’
Happily ever after.
