Pain and Pasta

The warmth of the water soothed his aching bones.  His joints were sore after the workout.  He should have just done a warm up and a couple of stretches then light weights.  No, for some inexplicable reason, he decided to do something new and now he was suffering for it.  He closed his eyes and …
