I am having long-overdue surgery on my knee tomorrow so that, hopefully, I’ll be back to running again before Christmastime. It does make me nervous though because, other than my appendix, I have never had anyone gouging into some part of me before. I was more or less a chicken-shit nerd (hard to believe right?) when I was a kid so I didn’t break my arm or nose or anything. I never went on snow vacations out of Miami so there was little risk of breaking a leg or twisting an ankle. Despite some folks insistence, I stubbornly hold on to my contacts and refuse surgery on my eyes for my relatively severe (nerdy once again) myopia. But this time, there is no escaping the knife. Well, the tubes because there are actually two holes that will be made into my anesthetized knee…I’ll spare the details but show you the photos afterwards ok?
As for yesterday’s post, I have to admit that I was far less vulgar today and even kept from looking at either iPhone or computer screen for almost 15 whole minutes today. A record 🙂 Like I alluded to yesterday, baby steps.
Free subject for comments: Does a clean slate / white page / new start scare the shit out of you or sound fucking exciting? Since reading those Kawasaki books, this devil’s seed has been planted in my mind because I would have been more on the former response for quite a while but am slowly leaning towards the latter. Oh cyber-reader, what does that concept conjure up in your virtual minds?
