It comes from poor typing skills...

I dunno but that sounds like it sucks. You went to the doc already, if I remember right. Maybe he missed something?

Okay, I'm sure there's a more science-y and less gross way to phrase that.

Hope it's nothing-masquerading-as-something, man.
Yeah hope so too. Came cross thing called DVT. Crazy stuff.

Yes, but you could be a guy that plays an actor that plays a doctor.

Advice nurses tell you to call 911 for a runny nose.

You can't fool me. You're really the guy that acts like he can't act like that guy that acts like an actor that plays a doctor.

Nah the knee.


X might be on to something. It's as if the fluid from the knee drained down to the ankle.

Maybe it is just "your time" and you are retaining water. Do you feel like crying at the drop of a hat? Crabby? Hate men?
