The Percocet Diaries - 1
by. Maurice Blocker
Fifteen knee surgeries, seven shoulder, four finger and wrist, two back, and one pill. Nothing is more important than that pill. Not his wife, but he makes sure to put on a valiant effort as to fool her into thinking she is. Not his three kids, two girls, one boy, who he diligently makes pancakes for every morning. Not his two Super Bowl rings he keeps on his fireplace mantle next to a picture of him with his wife and kids. Not the millions he’s made and even more importantly has managed to keep from his service as a bona fide human crash dummy also known as an offensive lineman for the NFL for fourteen long grueling years. He is a loving husband, wonderful father, and a great friend. When he has his pill. He is nothing without it.
