Another Profound Weekend

This might become a regular series – our weekend conversations are deteriorating by the minute.

I’ve recently started running again and my right ankle and hip have been giving me trouble. As I was lying on the floor, trying to remember the exercises my former physical therapist taught me, I mentioned how cool it would be if D was a physical therapist. Free therapy and adjustments for life!

He looked up from his magazine and without missing a beat, said, “It would be even cooler if you were a hooker for free.”

    My hips resemble that of an 80 year old as of late. No amount of stretching has lessened the pain. If you remember/think of something (in your spare time, when you’re not learning how to become a hooker) let me know.

    Oh my goodness, that just made me almost spray coffee all over the laptop! D is just hilarious.

    As for running, well, if I can get back into it this fall, I am sure I will be crying in pain with you. Hubby runs and is always in pain, I keep telling him to choose a different sport.

    What a comeback! At least he didn’t ask you to pole dance – that would be tough with a hurtin’ hip!

    HA!!! Love the story! I’m delurking to share a similar story from my husband…

    We were on vacation in China and at what we nicknamed “The Temple of One-Thousand Challenges” and there was this little bridge that if you crossed it in 9 steps holding the hand of your partner you would be together not only in this lifetime but also in the next. I said, You want to? and he answered without missing a beat, “You’ll probably come back as something cool like a monkey and I’ll just be a lice on your skin.”

    Well, I mean, he has a point. Exchange of services and all that…

    While I appreciate D’s sense of humor, I need to correct him with his logic, because if the hooker is really doing it for free, then she wouldn’t be a hooker, would she?

    Charming. Sounds like something that would come out of Roger’s mouth just before I shot him “the look.”

    So, what is it that would be different if you were a hooker? The tight pants and ciggies?

    I guess nothing, considering my daily getup resembles Sandy’s outfit at the end of Grease. :)

    Hooker. Such an interesting word. Bossy is trying to connect the visual with the job title but can’t make the link.

    I love the word hooker…especially when combined with “dirty pirate”. Bethany – I’m 27 and my hips are also falling apart. I don’t know why…but apparently this is The Year That Your body Rebels. However I suppose if you become a hooker, the hip issues either resolve themselves via ‘work’ or become exponetially worse.

    Ha. That story made me laugh. Out loud. I love your blog, by the way. You bring a joyful light to my day.

    Re: hip pain – I had 80 year old hips in the beginning of my pregnancy. It was UN REAL. Anyway, I found that sleeping on a wedge worked. a little. food for thought.
