Physical Terrorists






You know you've been in Physical Therapy too long when...


1. All your peeps are 80


2. You wonder where they got the orthopedic sandals and do they come in metallic?


3. Your peeps ask you if you have named your walker


4. Your sister says "Don't you dare!"


5. You are on a first name basis with all the therapists and office staff


6. The aids whistle your theme song when you come in-Shaft

7. You know you walk like a gangsta

8. You think maybe it's cool to have a gangsta strut

9. You bling out your cane

10. It is like a part-time job!

It's been a long 6+ months but I can walk and I couldn't have done it without them! I love to hate them.

It may be time for the "at home" version of physical therapy...and I still say "don't you dare name that blinged out walker!!!!!"

Ok, I am out of the loop. What were in you physical therapy for?

Brynn - We miss you!! You were one of the best baby sitters we had, not to mention just an awesome girl! You will always be known in the rasheed family on the best of babysitters list!

I would just be careful the PT's don't hurt you again just to make sure you keep coming back so they have someone fun and lively to deal with (not that your 80 year old peeps aren't a lot of fun. . .)
