If You're Looking for Sympathy, It's In The Dictionary Between "Shit" and "Syphilis"

The spousal unit is facing the inevitable this summer – replacement of one of his knees (twenty-three years as a Marine infantryman will do that).  He had a consult with the surgeon this morning and was giving me an account of the appointment over lunch. 

He:  So the doctor says I won’t be able to kneel for quite a while.

Me (snickering):  You’re Scotch-Irish.  You don’t kneel anyway.
