I love how a fresh cane mark seems to erase the previous redness, same as the fresh shock seems to erase the previous pain. Unfortunately, the effect never seems to last as long as I'd wish.
There are days like this, where nothing seems to go right- or to go at all- and the only cure for it is to flop down, hopefully on something soft, and wait for it to pass. Well, there may be another cure, though it might not be pleasant. . .
