Going to the doctor can be really embarrassing when it makes you realize how out of shape you are. Like I said in this new Dustinland comic, it turns out that I literally hurt myself by sleeping. Not running, not playing basketball, not skateboarding. Sleeping. This is the kind of thing that happens as you get older. It’s like the Louis CK bit where he asks the doctor what he can do about his knee and the doctor says, “Eh, nothing. Your knee is just shitty.” I mean I can do something about my stupid back problem, and I am, and it involves pillows and a giant rubberband, but you get the point.
Well, on the bright side, any time I get sick or hurt in any way, it does inspire me to work out more and eat healthier, so at least there’s that.
