Of all the things I like to take for granted
Like walking quickly
Like driving comfortably
Like standing up, or sitting down
The one thing I have really never considered
Is putting on socks
Such a mundane and normal task
Almost meaningless and empty
Yet when the freedom
To put on your socks and shoes is removed
I somehow feel like less of a man
Stinking hamstring, we were such great allies
Until last night,
Last night when you decided you needed a break
Literally a break
A brief flash of agony
A dull ominous, threatening ache followed
And now we wrestle with the future, and putting on socks.
Oh happy happy joy joy, I’ll be seeing a lot of medical folks for the next couple of weeks after my hamstring went out playing softball last night. There’s a first time for everything, but some things I could quite happily skip. I hope your Monday was more comfortable than mine.
When putting on socks sitting on the bed – put on underpants first. Skid marks on sheets are frowned upon!
Ouch! I hope you recovery quickly and feel better, Chris!
Will be praying for you, Chris!! Probably each time I put my socks on over the next few days!! 😀
