Chris 1, Prescription Painkillers 0
After getting six hours of sleep the night before, after not eating anything for the entire day, after sitting in pain in the emergency room for two hours, and after being given both a Vicodin and a Percocet, I was still lucid and awake at three o'clock this morning while watching a rerun of Sunday's Meet the Press.
How bad was my weekend? Well, let's just say that one of the first things the doctor in the ER asked me was, "have people been giving you looks when you walk down the street?"
Well yes, but only the crazy ones. Normal New Yorkers know not to stare.
