Taking A Fall & Being Good At Noon In Hot Texas

I had my bad brain freeze up this morning. That has not happened in a while. With a bad brain freeze I'm unable use my imagination. It just goes blank.

To thaw the brain freeze I decided to go unusually early to the Tandy Hills Natural Sanatorium Sauna Area. Even though it was early, it was HOT.

As I was walking along, on a downhill, rocky path, my phone went off with a text message noise. I reached for the phone, flipped it open and slipped on the loose rock, totally falling down, hitting hard on my right hip, wrenching my back real bad.

When I got back vertical my back was in full backache pain mode. I thought, first total brain freeze, and now my back is out. Yet more misery in this hell I am living. My back has not gone out in a long long time. I was telling someone, just a couple days ago that I never get backaches anymore, due to, I thought, yoga, stretch and exercise ball routines I do religiously. I thought when I said that that I was possibly jinxing myself.

When got stable enough to walk, it was very hard to get to the top of the hill. Each step brought a gasp of pain. I got to where the trail is relatively flat and the walking became less painful. I was pretty sure I'd put my back out. That can take a long time to recover from. So, I'm happy, now, a couple hours later, to be able to type that my back is not out. No pain. And the brain freeze has melted.

And what was the text message that caused all this havoc? Well, it was from my mom and dad. It said, "be good at noon." What in the world does that mean? It perplexes me.

If you use T9 for text input (basically using the numbers and having the dictionary come up with the most likely word), then good and home are in the same group. 4663 can be good or home.

She probably wanted you to be home at noon. Likely she knew an injury was imminent because of her uncanny ability to see the future.

But, in her attempt to change the future she caused it as is often the case when trying to manipulate the space time continuum.

My Tacoma sister emailed me with the same info, though not as detailed as yours. I called their Arizona land line, no answer. Left a message saying I was good at noon, but now it is half past noon, so can I start being bad again.

Now you're going to be bad once I've left the area?

CT2---You've left the area?

You don't remember the hug goodbye?

CT2---I have a serious hug aversion and block those type memories almost as soon as they happen.
