A Letter to this editor

Dear Lily,

It has come to my attention that there seems to be more activity going on with "us" lately than there has been over the past three months. Don't get me wrong, I love to be included on such things as walks, massages, loving caress's as you apply Pensaid or soaking in a hot bathtub with Epsom salts, or propped up with a hot water bottle or even better, ICE. Of course there is my ever fashionable brace during those achy days, but, I just happened to look over the keyboard while you had your feet on your desk at work and noticed that there were two races recently modified on your sidebar.

WTF are you thinking?

You want me to start running distances again as well as all this biking? Are you out of your ever loving mind? Do you not realise the pain we went through with Paetella surgeries years ago and how long we were laid up? Do you not remember the second time when you went for your little sleep, while I was poked, prodded, and suctioned during arthroscopic knee surgery, NO, you don't remember any of this do you?

Are you having a Blonde Moment??

Did I just read that you've signed up for the Canada Army Run in September and the Picton Half Marathon in October???

No wonder we've been getting up really early and going out for these "little training runs", you thought you'd pull one on me didn't you, you thought that you would increase the mileage and I wouldn't notice.

Well, let me tell you something sister, okay, I'll go along for the ride on the bike, but when it comes to this running schnitzzzz, you'd better be ready for me to run right along with you! But remember, you'd better *look after me and I'll look after you.

Yipppeee, we are back in action. Half Marathon training has begun.

Kindest regards,

Your Knee

*'cuz if you don't I'll cause you such pain you'll regret you ever had this blonde moment!!!

Those knees can get so uppity, can't they? Best to keep 'em happy though because they have a way of undermining even our modest aspirations.

Wes said...

Ted said...

Why, knees, your fear is understandable, but I know when it comes down to it you're all about the "yipppeeeee": you're as excited to go out for a run as a pair of barking, jumping dogs. Glad you're back in action!

Anne said...

That's one of the most articulate knees I've ever read. For shizzle.

I really would like your knees to talk to mine... been feeling a tad creaky... I think it's the high heels I have been wearing.

Stupid knees. Personally, I've always felt they are one ligament shy of a full load.
