Well, it’s official. I am starting down the path of becoming the Frankenstein monster of the movies and literature of which you are all familiar.  No, I’m not talking about my costume for Halloween night: I’m talking about actually becoming the thing brought to life by electricity and a mad scientist.

I have a medical condition called Spinal Stenosis. It’s not uncommon, and it’s not terminal, so don’t put me in the death pool quite yet.  It’s basically a condition whereby I have narrowing spaces in my backbone (I have a backbone? Odd, I’ve always been told I didn’t have one), which causes pressure on my spinal chord and, when the discs in my back accidentally rub up against the nerves, well, I fall down, cry like a baby and can’t walk (brave people just call this ‘having your back go out’).

Long story short (too late, I know), my wife bought an electric device that gives me electric shocks into my back to keep the muscles from tightening up.  So daily I am having electricity put into my body. Hmm, me now speak Frankenstein!

If only I could become more machine, now, than man…I’d be Darth Vader…now that’s a character I’d love to be!

Greetings blog wanderers and seekers of truth, or whatever truth appears to be from the mind of a warped individual. You have reached the inner sanctum of some guy named Alan. Having graduated college sometime shortly after the Earth cooled, he finds himself in his late 30's and working out in the real world. His humor is dry and his outlook not so serious and somehow has picked up the nasty habit of writing about himself in the third person. He is married with child and loves his family, sports and, of course, his beloved video games...likelihood of his growing up? Not good. Are you an established site or magazine looking for a writer? Drop me a line if you are interested.
