Me duele mucho hoy.
I dislocated my patella (knee cap) a couple of days ago. I was out with a friend whom I had not seen in two years. I was simply putting money in a parking meter, turned to face the meter and my knee cap slid all the way to the side of my leg. If you google "dislocated patella" and search images you can see what me knee looked like. The firemen had to relocate it right there on the street.
The part I am hoping to look back on and laugh about is that I was wearing a dress and my old friend was my "date" for the day. He had to see me spread eagle on the middle of a downtown street. Talk about embarrassing. Lol. He was very sweet though and found my daughter's jacket in the car and covered me up so that nobody else got a free show.
Hope everybody else is having a great summer/ winter Mine is one of Murph's Law.
Te estaremos pensando y mandándote buena energía para que te mejores.
Who are you kidding? You were trying to impress him with your soccer skills while discussing the last goal made in the World Cup game, but, instead, you showed why the USA died early on in the competition. Serves you right.
Googling...it is definitely listed as a sports injury. Good news...it only takes 3-5 months of healing and therapy to strengthen the joint. I guess we will be hearing from you more often now that you're out for the season.
Well, the worst part (the relocating of the kneecap) is done. Now, you just have to rest. Hope you feel better soon.
Oh, no! I'm so sorry to hear that. There's nothing worst than a Murphy's Law day but it was very sweet of your friend to spare you from curious on-lookers! Hope you're feeling better and up & about soon!
Good grief! At least you can laugh about it! My private philosophy is that we all have a certain amount of embarrassing moments in our lives...well, at least you have this one over with....
I hope that you are feeling a lot better!
I did not find knee cap in the dictionary here at SpanishDict.com, but rather the two words written as one. I always find it hard to know when words like kneecap are one and when two - got it right on the second guess.
Anyway, I found this:
sustantivo 1. rótula (f) verbo transitivo (pt & pp kneecapped) también: to kneecap somebody -> = dispararle una bala en la rodilla a alguien como castigo (británico) Copyright © 2006 Chambers Harrap Publishers Limited
Kneecap [ni-kap] sustantivo 1. Rótula, choquezuela.
lol.. Hope you are feeling well now..
Ay dios mío. Espero que te mejores pronto. No quiero buscarlo en Google porque acabo de comer pero confío en ti cuando dices que te duele.
That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger!
