Yep, it’s all jacked up. Wheee!
It’s been threatening for a week or so, gimping me out here and there but today, as I was dancing to “Me and Julio down by schoolyard”, I moved one way and my knee moved slightly to the other and OUCH!
So, I’ve been moping and gimping along this afternoon, feeling all pitiful and sorry for myself. Also too: in pain.
I am eternally grateful that said knee chose this time to go awry rather than as I’m walking the 900 miles to and from airline gates. So. much. walking.
Still, it’s annoying and painful. Twenty years ago, I sprained my knee and it was some of the worst pain I endured. Seriously, I’d rather have surgery than go through that again. I don’t know if this is sweet body telling me that the chubs are hella outta control or there’s some other metaphysical reason for it but it’s un-fun.
On the bright side, I went to visit my Godmother on Sunday and we had the best time together. She watches a lot of television (she’s 80) so I bought her a Roku so she has a lot of other choices (Netflix and Amazon Prime) now. I hooked it up, showed her how to use it, and we saved some shows to her queue to watch.
In payment, I forced her to watch #sekritboyfriend videos (AI audition where he had the stupidest hairdo – see? It’s bad, yo) and the clip from the recent show where I WOO’d inappropriately. Plus, we watched episode 1 of Jane the Virgin, my fun obsession.
Thanksgiving will be with friends Kim and Sal at a restaurant and I’m good with that. We’ll see Cousin O’Love at Cousin O’Cool’s house on Saturday and there will be food and baby-holding. How does it get better than that?
Hopefully, my knee will allow me to move about without gimping but it surely won’t stop me from eatin’ and greetin’!
Happy Thanksgiving to you all (3 readers)!
