It was a slow day in the proton radiation department. I was about an hour late in getting on the table for my daily blasting. No worries though, I have one thing to do each day. All I have to do is lay on a table and get my head blasted.
- Free Falling by Tom Petty is making a good run for the song I have heard the most while laying on the table. The last song today was Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters. Metallica during proton radiation is soothing to my soul. Both songs are a throwback to late high school and early college years. I am not sure how old I am feeling if those songs are on the classic rock station.
- I am finding that my apartment is a difficult place to sleep in. I am on the third floor of a building next to a fairly busy street in the city. Construction happens at all different times of the night. It is currently after 1:00 am – and outside there is a loud truck and people screaming at each other. There is a bus stop right under my window. The bus that goes to 53rd and Walnut stops occasionally. I hear all of the announcements on the bus when it stops. There is also a bus that goes to Upper Darby that stops downstairs.
- Speaking of which, I have almost been able to start napping on the proton table. I figure if my nose is in the same place in the mask, I can just drift off into sleepy land while going through the 20 minutes of blasting.
