Knocked Down and Laid Up

For the past six weeks, I’ve followed a rigorous ritual every morning: I strap on a knee brace, grimace in pain, swear, and then hobble to the kitchen for coffee because it’s too early for booze. I’m in pain because I have a torn meniscus over a cracked bone in my knee and open, festering […]

We’re a group of accident-prone fools who regularly trigger embarrassing situations that would permanently traumatize a normal person.
