Progressive Stiffness

The good news is that my pants have finally dried and I'm no longer dealing with the discomfort of wet clothing.

The bad news is that the various body parts that I jarred while bouncing down five or six stairs this morning have grown progressively stiffer and more painful. 

I'm feeling a new appreciation today for the lady I met on the c-train last night who was suffering from spinal injury, and her comments on how challenging it is to take the train at rush hour when it's packed out and avoid jostling her injuries, or being pushed and bumped into.  As I consider my own coming commute home by train tonight with a stiff and aching back, shoulders, and neck, I'm wondering what that will be like as well.
