ex-gf's, taxy., just life knowledge, i guess. my knees are good, thank god. hockey players are nothing with bad knees. my injuries were always face, neck, and shoulder related.

i've lived with an aerobics instructor with an awesome figure but bad knees from billions of steps and stairmasters, and another girlfriend, a nurse, who was a curvy, tall girl who destroyed her knee in a moped accident in bermuda.

I have an appointment on Monday, but I'm fairly sure nothing is torn. I'm not having any trouble walking on it, it's not even swollen. We'll know in the morning when I wake up if I did more damage than I thought. I promise, if the knee swells up or becomes painful I will go get it checked before Monday!

Best thing about these falls is they all have a mechanical reason, I'm not getting light-headed or dizzy, just fall over my own feet and slip on ice.

That is only true of women who have carried to term. I've never carried long enough to have any hip widening happen.

I never carried to term either, but I have wide hips. I don't think they would have needed any widening. I had 37 inch hips when I weighed 114 lbs. Heck, I had hips when I was three.

I don't even have a waist...even when I am at proper weight. I still wear men's jeans, they fit me better than women's.

lol, just teasing.

there's been scientific studies that wide hipped females attract more men.

those with lesser badonka donk attract ogres. the good kind, though.




i'd better get my coat.
