Back Pain and a Date

Sitting in the office of a chiropractor in Redding was not how I wanted to spend my Saturday, but that’s the way life is sometimes. I had a date that day, and everything was going well, until I pulled my back at the rock climbing wall. My date was someone that I would call adventerous, and she loves to go rock climbing for some reason. After I hurt my back, I wanted to cut our date short so I could go to the chiropractor, but she was willing to go with me and continue the date, which was nice of her.

Since I couldn’t really do much else given the state of my back, my date and I decided to go back to my place and watch a movie on the couch. A new movie had just debuted on an online streaming service and I was dying to see it. I popped some popcorn in my air popper, which was fascinating to my date. She had never seen anyone who used an air popper. I guess she was used to only the microwaved stuff and the kind that they serve at the movie theater. As we were watching the movie, I forgot all about my back.

By the time the movie was over, my date and I were tired and nearly about to fall asleep. There was another movie that my date wanted to watch, so I started playing it. As time passed, we weren’t watching the movie anymore and were just making out. Even though my date and I were embraced, I didn’t feel any pain in my back. I’m not sure if it was because of my pain medication, or if it was because of what was happening, but I was enjoying every minute of it regardless of the reason.
