The Adventures of Jim and Henrietta and Her Amazing Bone Crushing Headache Machine
I had one giant headache.
Wished Henrietta would just go away, or give me Tylenol and a cold compress.
Maybe a sip of bourbon.
Instead, she’s banging in the cellar, cussing and sawing, welding and boring, screwing and gluing, while I should be snoring and healing, resting and renewing.
“Henrietta,” I call down the cellar. “What’re you doing aside from killing me?
“Jim,” she replies. “I’m building a one-of-a-kind giant headache pressurizing tourniquet-style A-one forehead skull-crushing make-the-pain-go-away love-you machine.”
I liked her better when she was working on that rocket ship to the moon project down by the creek.
