Ibuprofen: The breakfast of champions

Sometime this weekend I did something that offended my left knee. It could have been moving the drier at mom and dad's. Maybe it was the brake job on Mrs ERJ's minivan or perhaps it was changing the oil on the truck.

Mrs ERJ helpfully diagnosed it as YAGO syndrome. That is, You Are Getting Old.

I will be taking it easy for the next few days. Maybe my knee will calm down.


  1. For me, the toughest part of YAGO is the reduced physical productivity as time marches on. Seems to be a thing among my contemporaries as well, so I don't feel singled out.

  2. The dentist but me on 800mg of Ibuprofen for a bad tooth, last Jan. He didn't tell me it jacks blood pressure. I had to go on blood pressure pills.
