Body Quit Welding

I’ve been welding for three days straight, without a single break. Well, I suppose writing this counts as a break, but I’ll explain that later. Really, I’ve stopped welding now, but not because I wanted to. I think this is getting confusing, so let me go back a bit.

Basically, my girlfriend recently broke up with me, so I threw myself into my marine welding passion to take my mind off it. That was super successful, but I found that I just couldn’t stop even for a single second, otherwise I’d think of Matilda. Now, my best friend Mitch said that it wasn’t healthy to keep welding without eating or sleeping, but I didn’t listen to him. He warned that I was going to make my body quit on me. I thought he was crazy –but that’s exactly what happened.

I was in the middle of a bait board installation when my body just refused to work anymore. Suddenly I felt an extreme pain all over, and the next thing I knew, I was watching my body run off. I guess I’m a ghost now, and my body has decided that it wants nothing to do with me anymore. This really sucks. The worst part is that Mitch is going to start making fun of me, saying he told me so. He told me that I needed to take a break from professional marine fabrication. In the Melbourne area, my body is now hiding somewhere, all because I wouldn’t take a break. I’ve been such a fool.

How am I writing this blog post without a body? Well, that’s a great question. The truth is that as a ghost, I have psychic powers that allow me to connect to the internet at will. It’s pretty cool. In all honesty, maybe I should just stay as a ghost. Having a body is kind of overrated, anyway. I guess it doesn’t suck as much as I thought.
