From Epinions.com: "That 1967 Freshman Class Christmas Party":
This was a nice thing for all of us to do together -- and certainly beat having to deal with the frequent arguments between my phys-ed. teacher and myself re: why I couldn't do this or that activity. In order to be excused from activities, they had to be listed on a doctor's excuse. Because our family doctor was hesitant to excuse me from phys.ed. class entirely--saying that he believed exercise was healthy -- he asked for specific ones that we might be doing that wouldn't be good for my trick-knee and listed those: cartwheels and jumping on the trampoline.
While I was recovering from my knee-related mishap back in 1989, Diana and I happened to be talking on the phone.
"You know," she told me, "at one time, I thought that you were just making it up about having a trick-knee to get out of doing things in phys.ed. you weren't good at."
"And I thought you were just pretending to have seizures to get out of taking tests," I replied.
Somehow, I don't think a big glob of Icy Hot is going to successfully fix the problem seen in today's image.
