i had my first charlie horse in my calf about 4am last night.
have you had one?
i woke up ronnie to ask him what to do
and he said i just had to ride it out.
it is paralyzing pain and i just laid there
sounding like a cow in labor
until it finally relaxed.
then i laid motionless afraid
to make any sudden movements.
and just so you know,
it is still tender.
in fact, i was limping when i got up.
i am praying that they don't happen frequently,
i might saw off my leg.
