It's Official!

I'm the new House.

I have a pain in my leg and the only progress that it's made in the last week or so is moving from my right side to the left.I'm supposed to see the doctor tomorrow so I hope to get an expert opinion on it but in the meantime it hurts like a son of a gun.

And me without a cane, a handful of Vicodin or even a Sela Ward.

Add to that my growing cynicism about society and I guess I might as well start studying medicine so that I can really be the new House.

The sound of gunfire,
off in the distance,
