Rarely am I a whiny little brat. Bitchy? Yes, and frequently, but whiny? Noooo. Well, today I am a whiny little brat. I hurt my "good" knee a few days ago. I don't even know what I did to it. I'm guessing that last Thursday when I had to stand on the Metra the whole way downtown might have been the problem. Now my right knee has no inclination to bend. It also kept me up all night last night, with pain just about everywhere. Therefore: me = whining. There are days (few, though) that I wish I lived with someone, anyone else, so I had someone to help me out. I asked the dust bunnies if they would lend a sista a hand, they were having none of it. I can only take Tylenol, so I choose to take nothing, and suffer through it. Monday laughs at me.

It's only whining if it's unwarranted. Bum knee is totally warranted.

My suggestion is to keep drinking. The unbalancing effects of alcohol should cancel out the unbalancing effects of your knee, like when you multiply two negatives to get a positive.

Best.Advice.Ever. And THIS is why you and I are friends, Brando.

Just make sure you drink from the opposing hand. There's no telling what might happen otherwise.

well, I can appreciate the yearning for a helpmeet. However, you need to remember that if you are hetero, your partner will be a male. Males are EPICALLY whiny when they get the sniffles, but of limited utility when the other side needs help.

I recommend you get a wife.

I once reverse-engineered a cure for the sniffles in northern England:

1.5oz Scotch, the cheaper the better
1 tsp sugar
1/2 lemon, squeezed
10oz hot water, or to taste

The only problem here is that Von isn't in northern England, so it may not be as effective.

MenD set up the straight line, and stole his own joke.

Just to save you the trouble, of course.

Sorry to hear about this. If I can do anything from afar, you know where to find me.

Who is this person, where did they come from, and how can I get rid of them.
