Happy Tuesday everyone!! You know, for a man of considerable girth, I've always gotten around quite well. I competed in sports in High School. I could always hold my own in Paddle-Ball, and Golf. And I've been known to cut a rug or two on the dance floor. I've never had a cavity, and although I've totaled out 3 cars in my life-time, and have "Kissed the Pavement" once or twice on my bike, I've NEVER had a broken bone of any kind!! Knock on Wood!!!
Yesterday for some unknown reason, my left knee became very painful to walk on...
Every time I stood to walk on it, I thought that I would need a cane to ambulate. After I got up and moved around a bit, it loosened up some, but I still have a slight limp. Last night I found some Ben-Gay in the medicine cabinet, and slathered some on before I went to bed. Well if you have ever smelled that horrid cream , you know how it's aroma can waft through the whole house!
Soon afterwards, my 17 year old son Reese came into my room to inquire about the pungent smell, he then tells me that "Ben-Gay works for shit...You need the REAL stuff"! He then brings into my room a very small container of this cream called "Tiger Balm". "I paid 12 bucks of my own money for this crap...It's the best".He then orders me to show him my knee......(as he was putting on a rubber glove). I said ' why the glove Reese ' ? He smiled and said..."You'll soon find out"! Next he came back with a medicine vial of 800mg Motrin, took one out, handed it to me , and ordered me to take it. YIKES!! Within a minute or two I could feel the burn start to increase until it felt like someone was holding a blow torch to my knee. But the pain soon gave way to relative comfort, and I was able to enjoy some rest..
GOD I FELT OLD!!! I certainly hope that this was not a harbinger of things to come...My son taking care of me, and handing me my 'Meds'!!! My mind tells me that I am 25 years old, but unfortunately my body and the mirror tells me a different story.
But before I went into a total state of depression and dimentia, I was reading a book someone had given me for one of my birthdays. It happened to be a book about events that took place the year that I was born. I've made a small list of the most prominent names that share my birth year, and here are some of them....
Alex Ljiljak (my best friend)
I think that it would be fun, if any of you out there, could name me a couple of famous people that may also share YOUR birth year...Of course if you are too old to do so, I understand!!
Thanks for visiting.............Peace!
