"I am relatively confident about my body’s hardiness, and I hardly ever even get stiff shoulders, but recently, my right arm has started to get stiff, and it’s finally gotten to the point that it’s actually painful. Come to think of it, it’s because I’ve been working without taking much time off for close to 11 years straight, from starting the serialization of Dr. Slump on to Dragon Ball now. I suppose I might as well have a doctor get me to stop and take three months or so of vacation…. (Although, it’s started to feel better since yesterday…. Crap…)"
