The Fifth Day Of Duckmas 2012


So I did eventually make my way to the mall to take the annual "duck-at-Cvale" picture.  Monday, it was.  It was much less busy, and I was able to get a spot quite close to an entry.  A casual walk to the center court, a few pictures, and I was out in about a half-hour, tops.  Then I got back into my car.

And the back of my left knee exploded like someone had hit it with a RPG.  I had placed my foot against the firewall of the DuckMobile to adjust my seating position and pushed... and kaboom.  By the time I got home, I was barely able to make it up the nine steps from the parking lot to Pond Central, and I was honestly worried about being able to get to work today.  I slept quite poorly, since every time the knee moved, it hurt.

This morning, once it loosened up, it seemed to move a little bit better than it had been... I was actually able to put a sock on that foot by bending my knee.  Last night, I couldn't bend it enough to take the sock off, I had to use a spatula.  I still stopped at the drugstore and picked up a cane on my way to work.  Tonight?  The cane helped me make it up the stairs, but I probably could have made it without it.  Maybe I'm not as damaged as I thought!

Enjoy the duckie!
