Why You’re Frustrated (an audioblog recorded while on Vicodin)

So, I did something horrid to my lower back. It’s happened before, many years ago. This time, I took a bootleg Vicodin I got from somewhere or another and recorded an audioblog while under the influence.

Enjoy. Or don’t. I had one helluva time.

ALSO: I had the craziest dreams last night. I woke up in a panic, thinking I had enlisted in the Army only to realize that I would have to drop out of school to be in the Army and that was a mistake and I was trying to explain to the Army why I couldn’t help them out right now but thank you for the opportunity. Oddly enough I had just come from an event where I was a backup singer for Celine Dion at her show in Las Vegas where I had a sneaking suspicion that my microphone wasn’t on (not surprising).

    Hi, Erika: I’m a big fan of yours (have your book, follow your blog, applied a lot of your wisdom to both my professional and personal life, etc.) but I’m deaf, so I can’t jump over to SoundCloud to have a listen. 🙁

    Any chance you could work up a transcript? I’d love to have a look. 

    Thanks so much — a big fan

    michgerson Sadly, transcription is expensive. And this one is largely about the audio. So, until I start doing more podcasts in the traditional sense, I won’t be providing transcripts. Sorry, dear reader. Hang tight for the new podcast 🙂

    Erika, Cross your legs like a guy, (specifically the side that is bothering you) bend forward gently until you feel the pulling stretch on the lower back and upper hip, it stretches the high hip/glute muscles that pull on the back. Promise!
