Slowly the pain and stiffness receded, and I felt like I could function. Then I had a radical notion: why not simply take the day off, not because I had to, but because I wanted to. Usually, I’m in bed feeling guilty that I can’t function – today I just read and puttered and played Words with Friends (!), and didn’t feel guilty about having a day off.
