When the orthopaedic surgeons get reluctant to hack your bones up, because they aren't sure they'll stick back together again.   :-\

1. When you make a noise like Monica Selles hitting a ball every time you get up.

2. When you know what Monica Selles sounded like.
3. When you know how Monica Seles spelled her surname  ;)

:thumbsup:  Right enough. I used to have a colleague called Sell├Ęs; maybe his spelling sorta leaked through the myelin.

BTDT but there wasn't an option since the bone was already broken.  All the same the ortho hacker took a somewhat sadistic pleasure in telling me that my diabetic bones probably wouldn't knit, and kept it up at every visit until - surprise - it did.
