I want everyone - especially strangers - to stop asking me why I have a knee brace. Every time I am asked I feel compelled to explain, because to be curt is to be rude, and yet most don't really want to know all of the mysterious details of what it is I do and do not know about what is wrong with my knee.
And it's none of their f*cking business.
"Is that a toupe?"
"Where did you get that gash on your arm?"
"Why are you wearing that knee brace?"
If I were a woman I'd answer; "My boyfriend pushed me down the stairs." That would shut them up pretty fast.
