a water tower and some weird stuff

Apologies
 to
 any and all 
who saw this post
on 
Monday

I dont know
 why or how
 that 
happened
I double checked
 and
 I had, indeed, set it to post on Wednesday
GAH!!





this was shot on broadway
 near fairway
 between 74th and 75th streets
 or
 maybe not


the other day
 i was sitting at my desk in the office
 when suddenly
 my throat
 developed
 one of those dry spots

 do you know what i mean?

 one second i am fine
 swallowing is easy
 then suddenly
 there's a spot on the inside of my throat
 that feels 
oddly dry
 as if 
when i swallow
 its pulling
 the rest of my throat in
 causing me
 to feel as if i am suffocating
 okay 
maybe 
thats a slight exaggeration
 but
 still 
its odd

 drinking water
 does not make it go away
 it does
 eventually
 stop feeling weird
 it goes away
 taking
 my voice with it
 sort of 

i dont become mute
 tho i am sure some would wish that were the case
 no
 not mute
more
 raspy
yeah
 raspy
 is the best explanation

 in relating
 this 
to
 Toonman
 i got 
quizzical
 bordering on
 skeptical
 looks
 and
 a complete disclaimer
 as to ever
 having experienced this phenomena

 does your throat do this?

 its one of an assortment
 of 
odd body reactions 
my body 
seems to have

 there's the tingling i get in my left shoulder for no apparent reason
 which is totally unrelated
 to the oddly scary heaviness
 i occasionally feel
 in either arm

 once or twice
 it happened to both arms at the same time
 now
 that 
was
 really
 scary

 both arms feeling weighted down
 i dont even try to lift them
 it would be impossible

 it passes
usually in far less time than it feels

 i did tell the doctor about this 
because 
i was sure
 it was indicative of a stroke
 but
 he said it was from a pinched nerve
 he insisted
 it must happen
 when i have been sitting too long
 except it isnt
 and
 i told him so

 he shook his head
  said it was a pinched nerve
 i didnt tell him what i thought of his diagnosis
 i just tucked away his reaction
 so 
when
 i do stroke out 
i can say
 told 
ya 
so

do you have weird body reactions
please say you do
 or
 Toonman will surely say
 told
 you 
so
