LITTLE KNOWN AILMENTS OF THE MODERN AGE #4365

knee

Shopper’s Knee – a chronic condition predominantly affecting men when on shopping expeditions with female partners. Often mistaken for an attack of selfishness, the only known remedy is immediate rest and a swift intake of alcohol in a nearby bar.  The condition is indiscriminate: it can suddenly strike down men of all ages, during the weekly purchase of household sundries or, more commonly, the seasonal extended search for clothing.  (See also Chronic Family Gathering Fatigue [CFGF])

      1. Thanks so much trE. I’m kind of only half back – things are a little weird at the moment and I’m trying to carve out more time for reading. Posting something new pretty much every day for 14 months was starting to mean I never read anything…which wasn’t great. But I do hope keep the blog alive and follow all my favourites – such as yours!!

  1. Poor John shops for gadgets. I shop for food. Neither of us are very interested in clothes. I don’t go with him and he doesn’t go with me. BUT he does suffer regularly from domestic blindness and selective deafness.

And then the thigh bone is….well, I could go on: I’m sure you grasp the complex anatomy at play here in relation to this under-diagnosed condition. Luckily for you, you’re still more than welcome to attend the support group…..
