Kneeling in Pain

When I bend down on my knees, I can’t do it the way normal people do. I have to place something soft, with plenty of cushion, under my knees or they wail in excruciating pain. Hearing the blood-curdling screams of knees that believe they are in the process of being butchered is an experience that changes a person forever.

For people with geezer knees like mine, wearing flip-flops  carries with it an unexpected benefit; flip-flops can serve as instant knee cushions. Simply slip out of them and rest the knees on their cushions of thick, soft rubber. The pain in so doing is not insignificant, but the experience compares favorably to the horror of bare-kneed kneeing.
