Cankles, Tremors and Monkeys

Posted by Karen Hessen on Sunday, July 31, 2011 Under: humor
I like words, so when my husband came across the word "cankles" in a comic strip in the Oregonian I had to look it up. I thought maybe it would lend itself to a piece of humor writing. Cankles is the condition in which there is no tapering of the calf at the point of the body where the calf and ankle meet. Well, I'm sure people who have cankles do not think it is humorous, and like Charlie Rice, former Youth Pastor, always said, "It isn't nice to have fun at someone else's expense.

I don't have cankles, but I do have tremors. I inherited them from my dad. He must have thought highly of his tremors since he passed them on to me and a nephew. Perhaps he thought we were special. Thanks, Daddy. I didn't think it was funny when Daddy had so much trouble eating that his food went everywhere except in his mouth. Some people made fun of him, but not me. As I age, I become more of a tremorer. I see more of Daddy in myself everyday. It really isn't funny now! I was thinking, perhaps I could get a service animal to help me eat. Not a dog or a miniature horse. No, I need a critter with opposable thumbs. You know, a monkey of some kind, that can hold my utensils, use my knife to cut my meat, hold my sippy cup and feed me with my own fork. I would expect to take him into restaurants with me since I don't want to give up my fine dining habits as I age. My husband doesn't like this idea. He says monkeys can't be trusted. So, he says the same thing about women, but he's got me.
