I never realized the Ski Utah slogan around here was a marketing plan for physical therapists.
When the physical therapist was
I don't think I'm a very good patient.
Or a very patient patient.
I asked him how much longer I would 1) have to wear the leg brace and 2) have to come to physical therapy.
He asked, "How long ago did you injure your knee?"
"A month," I said. An eternity.
He said, "Well, it's usually about 6-8 weeks. Maybe three months."
I think my face must have registered dismay, horror, disappointment because he said, "I mean it will be that long until you're totally back to normal. It's healing, just not on the Thelma time table."
And there it is.
The Thelma time table.
If the entire world would adopt the Thelma time table, that would be a good thing.
Will you at least consider it, entire world?
(It's a good time table.)
