Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “joint.” Use it as a noun, an adjective, or a verb–use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!
To me, the word joint will mostly evoke memories of the pain and anguish I suffered due to my knee joints! I suffered a lot because of the pre-mature disintegration of both my knee joints due to a form of rheumatoid arthritis. But all that is behind me since I got both my natural bony joints replaced with titanium joints. Now I always emit a loud beep ( the scanner at the gates does that, but I like to think I did) whenever going through security checks. Most of the time they ask me to step aside, very politely, but gingerly. I have to go through extra checking because they never take my word for it that the metal in my body is making that sound. I probably look like a very dangerous terrorist.
But it is really a minor discomfort. The great thing is that there is no pain in my joints anymore. And I can walk and stand for a reasonable amount of time. But I have to give credit to my doctor who was so confident about the outcome of the surgery that I was never double-minded about it. So I can say that it was a joint effort that my surgery was a big success. And obviously, my family did play their part. If it were a show it could be called a joint production!
