I hear you. I've been waiting for one of these dogs that are on *surprise* long leashes to take me out. I always go out of my way around them because I couldn't image how horrible it would be to...

I think I misrepresented my soreness (or rather didn't explain it!). I get sore on the level of can't walk for a day or three. Which probably sets me back more since it puts me out of commission. I...
