The in-thing in fashion these days..

I had gone to get my left knee checked today. More of a preventive action than any long term pain or anything. There is an occasional pain and I am worried more about the mechanics than any structural issue.

In any case, I was asked to get a quick X-ray before meeting the doctor. And then I was ushered into the X-ray area. The lady took me to a room and asked me “take your trousers off, put in these paper shorts and keep everything else on”!! Those shorts are actually made of paper!!

As I pondered over getting papyrusly clad, I wondered what she meant by “everything else on”. To play it safe, I kept my jacket as well as dress shoes and socks on!! Evidently I was not the only one with this ridiculous look. As I stepped out, the whole corridor was a veritable Versace fashion show of people milling around, all dressed up to various levels of hilarity like me!!

Perhaps a fashion show in Scotland somewhere!!!

    Great! Once something has been seen it cannot be unseen…and now we’ve seen a picture of Rajib without his pants

    Shelly , I have meaning to call you for some time. Actually, this pain happens even if we get a little more cushioned shoes like Nike Free (not as cushioned as Asics Kayano). You know what cures it? If I put in a couple of sprints. Have been trying to find out why? I am sure it is mechanics not structural issue…

    Bob , you are right. There are no pain receptors in your visual cortex. They are on your nerve endings. On the other hand what your visual cortex is sensing is called jealousy. It is kind of a pain too πŸ™‚

    How did your imaging go ? Did you tear apart the shorts after the imaging ? Just wondering what would happen if it’s torn while sitting ?? May be they will provide paper towels after that !!

    I did a double take and had to read your post. It looked like you were in your boxers. Not that I know whether you wear boxers or not. Just saying!
