Ge The Look: Dude, What Happened To Your Knees?
One early morning, I woke up all energetic and went for a run. Three minutes into the run, I tripped on a piece of stone and fell. I landed on my right knee, then my right palm and scraped the surface with the left knee then followed the left palm to the tar road. Yes, I unceremoniously sent down on all fours by gravity against my will. This happened a few days before Mielie Pop Music Festival which I was to attend. The first few days of healing I had to wear plasters obviously. Not only that but I had to wear plasters on both knees at a music festival to also avoid possible infection. Needless to say whereever I walked around the festival I was contiously asked: “what happened to your knees dude, please say carpet burns” followed by a roar of laughter. I didnt want to dissapoint people so I ran with it. Whenever I goit tired of the carpet burns story I would just paraphrase Madonna and say “when I go on my knees is not to pray, it is to werk”.
