Ouch Good Pain

Au Bon Pain

One of my ex-colleagues pronounced the name of this bakery as “Auuw Bon Pain (as in painful and not pahn – the French word for bread)” and thought the words translated to “Ouch! Good Pain”. It was very cute and quickly became a running joke among us — every now and then someone would announce that he/she is “in the mood for a good pain”. :D

Today I’m in a lot of bad pain so good pain sounds like a great option. Well, in any case, it’s good to remember that this too shall pass.

Sometimes there is such a good thing as good pain. When you've worked hard all day, stretching your muscles and getting a lot done, that dull ache that's all through your body actually feels kind of nice. It's your body's way of saying, "You've earned a rest." The pain from, oh, for instance, hitting your hand with a hammer, on the other hand, is bad pain. Bad pain is never good. It's your body's way of saying, "YOU IDIOT!"

When I think of good pain I definitely think of post-exercise pain - my muscles may be sore now but tomorrow (or a few days later) I'll feel grrreat.Hitting yourself with a hammer, now that's not bad pain, that's stupid pain! Ha!:D
