Why can't I have exciting injuries?
For real. It's embarrassing to be limping around with a knee cap twice it's normal size and have to say, when asked what happened:
"I was walking across the Publix parking lot and something popped."
Seriously, why can't I have an exciting story like I had to leap over a fence to save a kitten or puppy from some horrible danger and although, yes, I felt my knee blow out like a tire on Ralphie's father's car, I ignored the pain until the kitten and/or puppy were safe.
Or: I was climbing Grandfather Mountain (why not Everest - FPS you know that'd be lie) and slipped on a patch of ice.
Nope. Just walking.
So now instead of just going to an orthopedic doctor, I have to get an appointment with my primary doc (wasting her time, my time, depriving another patient of an appointment, and wasting my co-pay) just so she can shrug and say, "go see an orthopedic doc". Then I get to try to get an appointment with a new doc and pay an even bigger co-pay.
Thor sez: No, what is annoying is your insistance that your knee brace isn't a good chew toy.
