Clark: A new year, a new knee

What happened?

I feel like I took one of those Alice-down-the-rabbit-hole pratfalls.

One moment I’m watching a roomful of giddy Republicans grow giddier by the second as the Election Night returns roll in.

Next I’m being wheeled into surgery to get a brand new bionic knee complete with Alexa Bluetooth and a laser defense system.

After that, comes a scramble of…

Painful physical therapy. Thanksgiving. More painful physical therapy. Christmas. Mariah Carey’s painful New Year’s Eve meltdown …

Now here I am, slouched at the keyboard with a two-month chunk of time as gone as Anthony Weiner’s political influence/Doug Clark, SR. More here.

Question: Any Knee Replacements out there who want to weigh in?
