A morning charly horse became a midday stomachache. The evening brought a stabbing pain that jolted me awake. For two long hours, I lie prostrate beneath the porcelain throne. The pain, though I purged all I ate, just wouldn't leave me alone. Who knew that I'd go through so much over a small stone? Sunrise found me struggling inside a waiting room. The too-small chair I curled up in felt like a wooden tomb. The X-ray said my kidney had a three-millimeter stone. The IV doped me up so bad that I could barely drive home. Who knew that all of this would come from such a small stone? Although I'm glad it wasn't bad enough to kill, I'm not insured, so I'll wanna die when I see the bill. Now I have been forced to flee the sodas and the sweets. I let more water run through me than hydrants on the streets. Coworkers ask me, "What's a gent so young doing with a stone?," but I know teenage girls who've spent a week suffering at home. Who knew we'd all go through so much over a small stone? Although I'm young, and still in pretty decent health, my youth won't last, so I've gotta take better care of myself.
