I was doing some fairly easy stretches - gotta stay limber and agile, especially when a fall can be dangerous - when there was a suddenly violently sharp pain in a lump under the left side of my ribcage.
Time to pray for healing, and luckily I just saw a rather well-heeled TV preacher...
They say that there are special ways
to pray for mercy, grace and healing,
special words and turns of phrase
that God will find appealing.
They will send you a DVD
if you love-gift some cash-leaven,
and on it you will find the key
to unlock the vaults of Heaven.
I wonder if God likes these folks,
or thinks they're on a trip,
making the holy seem like jokes,
and is He makin' Hisself a whip?
I'll save my money, hit my knees,
close my eyes, and..."Daddy, PLEASE!"
Music from Swing Out Sister, with The Waiting Game, a charming song and really fun video. Close to the end there's a quick cameo of some Japanese schoolchildren, foreshadowing the happy fact that Swing Out Sister is immensely popular, these days, in Japan.

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.
