Carol Burnett once said “Take your bottom lip, and pull it up over your head” to describe to men the amount of pain women go through during childbirth.

It’s my theory that, in my own experiences– once in 2000 and right about, oh… NOW– that a kidney stone gives about the same amount of pain.

So if I’m a little quiet for a few days, you’ll understand.

Thank goodness for Vicodin! Wheee!

UPDATE, 1/5/06: I passed the stone. Whew! But now I hurt all over the place. Thankfully I’m due for another Vicodin. 🙂

And yes, I know, don’t get hooked on the Vicodin. Have you ever known me to be addicted to anything?

Hush. 🙂
