Some people are absolutely batshit crazy.

On the subject of our deputy prime minister, I think he should be left out* to 'enjoy the sunshine' for a few hours and and see what he thinks then.

* by which I mean, staked out

The Legendary Shark:

Gah. I've had a sore Achilles tendon for months now but I woke up this morning and could hardly walk. Time off work beckons...

Funt Solo:
Hope you get to a doctor, Shark. My personal experience with nagging knee pain is that I should have done something about it before I ended up injuring myself quite badly.

The Legendary Shark:

Went to the sawbones with it a couple of months ago. He gave me some exercises to do which eased the condition somewhat but this morning it just suddenly felt like I'd been kicked by a donkey. Maybe I twisted it in my sleep or something. Anyway, a good excuse for kicking back with a prog or two :-)

Aw, that sucks, Sharky. Hope you'll be up and about again soon.

(A couple of decades ago, I woke up to discover that my left foot had been afflicted with Tendonitis. Funny thing is, at the time it happened, I was living on the top floor of a 5-Floor apartment block. Walking or putting any sort of weight on it was very painful. And so, to get to the ambulance which awaited me outside, I had to make my way down the stairs by gripping each step, raising my body slightly into the air and then - in combination with my hands - using my one remaining good foot to propel me forward. Think of a cross between Samuel Beckett, and Leonardo DiCaprio's crawl in The Revenant and you have some idea of just how ridiculous I must have looked.  :) )
