Hey! Keep the racket down!

So I go to my doctor today to talk about the red-hot fireplace poker that's been jammed into my side for the past two weeks (also known as my kidney stone) and not only do I not get cured, but I walk out of there with a bonus malady. They must have been having a special today and I didn't see the sign.

It turns out that I have tennis elbow. I thought you had to play in order to come down with said disease, but that's not the case. It's caused by a tendon that's tearing away from the bone a little bit, and it gets tender and inflamed and hurts. I'm a lefty but it's on my right arm. Go figure. Too much typing, the doctor tells me, or playing with my joystick (video gamers are prone to it). Whatever. In for a penny, blah, blah, blah.
