Foolish Bodily Inquiries

She asks me how my knees are. It’s a loaded question, and we both know it. She saw me struggle to my feet multiple times last fall. There is the inevitable grunt that follows the creaking of 51-year-old knees that have touched the floor over a 26- year career. “Seriously, Mister. How are those old knees doing?” She asks, grinning like the Cheshire cat that’s swallowed the canary. “As well as either of us can expect,” I answer. That’s as much truth as either of us is prepared to share.

  1. So very cool, you. Made me smile. But I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him. Barely 51 and already suffering. A number of falls, huh. I feel bad for him. But I hope those falls came from doing things he loved. Thanks for sharing. And then the rain situation. haha. Yes. Can relate to that. Adored. Thank you. xo
